It was a lesson in effectiveness.
With snowflakes swirling in the air, the Hesston College baseball team witnessed firsthand exactly how timely hitting is supposed to look. Unfortunately, the hitting came at the expense of the Lark pitchers as the No. 17-ranked Johnson County Community College pounded HC 12-1 on March 14.
The Cavaliers were relentless on the Lark arms to the tune of 17 singles and two triples for the 19 hits in the route. Hesston’s control issues were a bit better, but the Lark battery still walked five and combined for three wild pitches. Drake Sturgeon drove in the only Lark run in the sixth.
Hesston travels to MCC-Longview for a weekend series before returning home to host Redlands Community College on Tuesday, March 28 at 4 p.m.
Hesston’s loss drops it to 8-18 on the season.
