Game Recap

Dux Snap 5 Game Skid With Win Over Unity

The Zeeland West varsity baseball took the field today looking to snap a five-game losing streak as the Crusaders from Unity Christian travelled to Zeeland looking for the three game sweep. Unity Christian struck first in the first as they took an early 1-0 lead. They extended the lead to 2-0 in the 6th inning on a sacrifice fly. Unwilling to give up, the Dux loaded the bases in the bottom of the sixth inning. With one out, Aaron Sleeman hit a sacrifice fly to right field to get the Dux on the board. Then, Jason Rennick entered the game as a pinch hitter and delivered a RBI single to right field to tie the game. With the game now tied at 2-2, Cooper Kilinski came to the plate and had a RBI single of his own to score the go-ahead run. That would be all the Dux would need as Brendan Vriezema shut down in the Crusaders in the top of the seventh to preserve the complete game victory. “It was a great team win,” noted Head Coach Adam Locker after the game, “the boys didn’t give up offensively and Vriezema was sharp on the mound.” Vriezema notched another win on the mound as went seven innings, spreading out five hits, three strikeouts, and no walks.
The win brings the Dux to 15-13 (4-11 OK Green) on the season and one win away from tying the school record for wins that was set last year. The Dux head to 5th/3rd Ballpark on Friday for a senior night doubleheader against Holland Calvary. The first pitch is set for 4pm.
