The IMS varsity baseball team played an excellent defensive game on Wednesday but were shut out at Rumsey, 5-0. Tim Haan led off the game with a single, but that represented the team’s only hit for the day. It was a disappointing day at the plate. Fortunatley, the two Falcon pitchers, Henry and Chris, did a great job and managed to allow only one run following the first inning. In addition, the team enjoyed awesome defensive plays from Ben, Jon, and Chris. Ben made a fantastic spinning throw off a well fielded ball to get the out at first from third, while Jon threw out a runner trying to score from third on a great throw from center field. Chris contributed a running catch from the outfield. Once their bats come alive, the team feels they will be in a good position to win.
The team plays their next game against Berkshire on Friday, May 13.
