Story Contributed by Coach John Hassan
Backed by an offense that made the most of seven hits on the way to a 7-0 lead after three innings, Troy dug in and pitched well and never allowed Christian Heritage to get any momentum. Only one runner reached second base on Troy and that runner was erased after 2B Kyle Gorman '18 snared a line drive and made a great throw to SS JT Papa '17 at second to complete one of three double plays from the Forman defense. RF Justin Henges '19 made a great running catch and doubled a runner off first and the double play combo of Papa to Gorman to 1B Jackson Beers '19 completed the other twin-killing for a Forman team that gave Troy all the defense a pitcher could ask for.
On offense, Papa and C Tom Troy each had three hits and Papa led the team with three RBIs. Senior DH Alex Schlesinger '17 also had an RBI.
So, timely hitting, strong pitching and steady defense carried Forman to their third straight victory and they are now 4-1 on the season heading into a game with Chase Collegiate School on Wednesday April 26.
