Woodward-Granger picked up their first win of the baseball season as the visiting team in Woodward May 23.
The Hawks play their home games in Granger, but traveled to Woodward to face the Woodward Academy on the new Knights Field, with W-G posting a come-from-behind 9-4 victory.
The Academy scored twice on the first inning and answered a single Hawk tally in the second with one of their own to hold a 3-1 edge after two frames. The Hawks closed to within 3-2 with a run in the fourth, then scored three times in the fifth, three times in the sixth and once more in the seventh to pull away as the hosts could counter only with a single mark in the fifth.
Tyler Wiedner earned the win in six frames on the bump. He yielded four runs — all unearned — on three hits and four walks while striking out eight. Chris McConahay cleaned up, fanning two in one frame of relief.
W-G stroked nine hits, but only Dylan Garland, who was 3-for-3, had multiple hits. Garland finished with three RBIs, with Mike Connor and Ben Krehbiel each plating two runs. Race Brant’s double was the lone extra base hit for the Hawks.
W-G also dropped a 12-2, five-inning secision to Pleasantville on May 22, with a seven-run second inning doing most of the damage.
Jake Smiley was handed the loss for W-G in 1.1 innings on the hill, with Garland tossing the remainder of the game.
Smiley and Alex Bodermann each had base hits for W-G, with Connor smacking a RBI double. Brant and Smiley scored the runs for the guests.
Zeb Adreon and Patrick Sheehey each doubled twice for Pleasantville, with Josh Luna collecting the win on the mound.
