SENIOR APPRECIATION GAME

Slow Start. Big Win on Senior Day.

 

After a great pre-game ceremony honoring the nine seniors on the Spartan Baseball Team, the game started and quickly had the appearance of a game the seniors would want to forget. Over the first three innings, Rogers High School hitters scored seven runs on errors, walks and hits. The biggest of those hits being a three run home run. But, then came the 3rd inning. The seniors, who played in the 2016 WIAA 3A Final Four, would not be denied and showed the determination and grit that they have learned over the last four years as Spartans. The Spartans put up five runs in the bottom of the 3rd, and six runs in the bottom of the 4th, and another run in the bottom of the 5th.  When the dust settled, the Spartans had erased the early seven run deficit, and had taken a 12-7 lead.  A big Rogers rally in the top of the 6th, saw the Spartans give up the lead 13-12, on the heels of a grand slam home run. The bottom of the 6th saw the Spartans rally for 3 more runs, thanks to Connor Filleau’s 2 run Homerun.  The Sparts went into the top of the 7th with a 15-13 lead.  Once again, Rogers managed to come back to tie the score.   However, in the bottom of the 7th inning, a Cody Chavis single won the game for Sumner 16-15 making it a game the nine seniors (and everyone in attendance) would never forget.

The Spartans had 19 hits in the game. Three of those hits came from Senior Connor Filleau, including his 3rd home run of the season. Senior Jake Gehri had four hits including his second home run in three games and 4th on the season.  Sophomore Bryan Falk, came off the bench in the 3rd inning, and added to his torrid Spring, going 3-3 with 2 doubles.  Senior Cody Chavis had three hits including the game winner. The Spartans have a well deserved off day on Thursday before traveling to Emerald Ridge on Friday to take on the Jaguars. The game on Friday will be the end of the Spartans regular season and the last game of an 11 day stretch that saw the Spartans play nine games. Friday’s game is a 4pm start.
