Baseball Downs Cranston West, Goes to 2-0

Yes, it's quite early in the season, but around here at Hendricken, we sometimes become jaded by the prospect of undefeated teams, to say nothing of undefeated baseball teams. Coming out of the baseball gate 2-0, then, isn't much about which to get excited, nor should we take it for granted.

Yesterday's game is a perfect case in point.  For 6 1/2 innings yesterday, the outcome still very much hung in the balance, as the Hawks were clinging to a 4-3 lead.  When our guys came to bat in the top of the seventh, however, they finally managed to put the issue to rest by plating seven runs en route to an 11-3 victory.  The Providence Journal's slideshow from the game can be seen HERE.

The Hawks travel to Cumberland this afternoon to take on the always-dangerous Clippers at 4pm.
