Cardinal Huskies take down Garfield 14-4 in 6 innings

MIDDLEFIELD, OH- On Saturday afternoon the Cardinal Huskies played host to the the Garfield G-MEN in a game that was originally to be played at Garfield as part of a doubleheader. Unfortunately the rain from this past week made Garfield's field unplayable. It was moved to Cardinal as a single game at 3:00 PM. The Huskies took this one in 6 innings 14-4.


After a scoreless 1st inning, the Huskies put up a four spot in the bottom of the 2nd. They loaded the bases with two outs on a couple walks and a hit batter. Reese Soltis was then hit by a Leo Grandizio pitch forcing in the first run of the game. Garfield coach Mike Paes made a pitching change to sophomore Brayndyn Bugucki. Charlie Soltis greeted him with a 2-run single.

Garfield was able to get on the board in the top of the 3rd. Tyler Lutz drew a walk from Huskies starter Carter Tucker. After the next two batters were retired, Bogucki reached on an error. He then stole 2nd base with the throw from catcher Hunter Gresch going into centerfield allowing Lutz to score. Grandizio grounded out to end the inning. The Huskie lead was now 4-1.
