Baseball takes three from Leslie

The Stockbridge baseball team opened GLAC play by taking three games from rival Leslie this week.

The Panthers opened the series by sweeping a doubleheader 3-0 and 13-1 at Leslie Tuesday.

Alex Rose was nearly unhittable on the mound in the opener, allowing just one hit and striking out 12 for the comlete game win. The Blackhawks got a leadoff single to start the game and Rose would not allow a hit the rest of the way.

Rose also drove in the first run of the game with a double in the fourth inning, which proved to be the game winner.

The Panthers added a pair of insurance runs in the fifth, when Drew Davis stole home on a double steal and a RBI double by Aiden Trost.

Leslie loaded the bases with one out in the 5th on a walk, error, and hit batter, but Rose got a strikeout and ground out a great play by PJ Loso, who went deep in the hole to field the ball and threw the runner out at first for the final out.

The Panthers put runs on the board in each of the first five inning to cruise to the win in the nightcap.

Jeremy Pilch led the offense with three hits and a RBI. Trost was 2-3 with three RBI, including a homerun, while Brody Canfield had two hits and a RBI.

Trost earned the win on the mound with nine strikeouts and allowed two hits.

Stockbridge finished the three game sweep with a 12-2 win Thursday.
