Streaks strike again
BASCOM – When Fremont St. Joe traveled to Hopewell-Loudon for a Midland Atheltic League contest Friday, the game had an eerily similar tone to their sectional final game played Tuesday. In that game, Zack Yeckley dominated Hopewell-Loudon with his arm on the mound in a 1-0 Streak victory. Friday, his bat proved to be the difference. Yeckley drove home Lucas Michael in the first and third innings, for the game’s only runs in a 2-0 Streak win.
Brett Michael outdueled Hopewell-Loudon’s Nick Scaife on the mound. Michael held the Chieftains to one hit while striking out six. Scaife held St. Joe to only four hits and two earned runs.
The loss drops Hopewell-Loudon out of a tie for first place in the MAL, leaving North Baltimore and Seneca East at the top.
