Zeeland West Dux Varsity Loses Lead Early In Defeat
The Zeeland West Varsity baseball team watched the game slip away early and couldn’t recover in an 8-3 loss to Zeeland East on Tuesday. The Dux were able to score a run in the top of the 6th inning and load the bases. Unfortunately, as the tying run came up to the plate for the Dux, the game was ended because of darkness.
Zeeland West scored three runs in the fifth inning. The big inning was driven by a triple by Trevor Kilinski, a single by Collin Merryman, and an error.
Chase Medendorp earned the win for Zeeland East. He went five innings, allowing three runs, two hits, and striking out seven. Tate DeJonge took the loss for Zeeland West as he tossed three and two-thirds innings, allowing six runs, eight hits, striking out three, and walking zero.
Trevor Kilinski and Merryman each managed one hit to lead Zeeland West Dux Varsity.
Zeeland East had ten hits in the game. The teams will wrap up their three game OK Green conference series on Thursday with the first pitch set for 4:15pm.
