HULL-Even though Western Christian was competitive, MOC-Floyd Valley made a late comeback with three runs in the top of the seventh inning to hand the Wolfpack a 7-5 non-conference baseball defeat Tuesday, June 19, in Hull.

The Wolfpack scored four of their five runs in the fifth inning to claim a 5-4 lead after trailing 4-1. Three of the runs were scored on either a passed ball or an error by the Dutch.

“We had to battle back to keep it close, which we did. I thought we ran the bases well and were able to take a few free ones where they let us. Offensively, we’ve got a few guys improving each game and it’s showing with the quality of their at-bats,” said Western Christian coach Pat Sinnema.

Overall on offense for the Wolfpack, Ty Van Essen had a single and an RBI. Trevor Anderson stole a base and scored a run. Evan Wibben had a hit and a stolen base. Matthew Van Otterloo scored a run. Treyton Sandbulte scored twice as courtesy runner. Dylan Zomermaand stole a base and scored.

Tyson Boer was on the mound. He pitched five and one-third innings, allowed five hits, four runs of which two were earned, two walks and had seven strikeouts. Dawson Feenstra came in for relief. He pitched one and two-thirds innings, allowed two hits, three runs of which one was earned, two walks and had three strikeouts.

“Tyson did a really nice job on the bump for us most of the night keeping them off-balance, and limiting their running game.”

But after the bottom of the sixth, MOC-Floyd Valley made its run in the top of the seventh to hand Western Christian another defeat. Despite the loss, coach Sinnema was encouraged by his team’s effort.

“Good game for us overall, and one we could’ve taken care of business within the last inning there,” Sinnema said.
