STRUTHERS, OH- It wasn’t the kind of start you’ve come to expect from the 14U Astro Falcons, but a lesson learned would be never wake a sleeping bear. The Astro Falcons rebounded from an early deficit to win Wednesday evening, 13-2 over the Prospects.
The Prospects got things moving in the first inning, when Caleb Hadley doubled on a 3-2 count, scoring one run.
The Astros notched six runs in the fifth and sixth innings, respectively. The offensive onslaught by Astro Falcons was led by Joey Gentile, Jaden Rishel, Charlie Young, Jay Michael Wrona, and Ryan DiLullo, all driving in runs in the frame.
Hadley proved himself as a man of many talents including toeing the rubber for the Prospects to start. He surrendered four runs on five hits over three innings, striking out one and walking one. Hadley also went 2-for-2 at the plate to lead the team.
The Astro Falcons totaled 13 hits. Rishel, Bo Fornataro, and Wrona each collected multiple hits for the Birds. Rishel led all hitters with three hits in three at bats. The Astros were sure-handed in the field and didn’t commit a single error. Nick Lewis had the most chances in the field with six.
