Holyoke 17, Wiggins 3
In the first game of the doubleheader, five Dragons had multiple hits as HHS coasted to a five-inning 17-3 win. Holyoke’s offensive surge piqued in the third inning as eight of the nine players to step to the plate rounded the bases to score, some more than once.
Coach John Zilla commended his team for drastically cutting out fielding errors in the games.
“The team did everything I asked them to do,” Zilla said. “There were no big errors or anything too costly and the team stayed focused all game.”
Holyoke quickly mounted a lead in the first inning. With one out, a Tiger error gave Holyoke its first baserunner of the game. Logan Tharp singled to left field on the next at bat to score Trevor Dalton. Tharp and Dylan Kotch both crossed home in the inning as well as the Dragons took a 3-0 stance.
