Baseball Earns Regional Victory
Cougars Win on the Road
(Worcester, MA) - The Cougars baseball team earned their first win of the young season on Thursday afternoon, travelling to defeat regional opponent Quinsigamond CC 7-3. Holyoke performed well behind stellar pitching and a six-run 7th inning rally on their way to the victory.
Starting pitcher Jake Leahy (Springfield, MA / Pope Francis HS) led the way for the Cougars, giving up just three hits in eight and a third innings pitched. Leahy struck out ten batters and gave up just one earned run in the contest. Catcher Aaron Young (Sommers, CT / Sommers HS) was strong from the plate, hitting 3 for 5 with a double, an RBI and a run scored. First baseman Mike Indomenico (East Longmeadow, MA / East Longmeadow HS) hit a clutch single that drove in two RBIs during Holyoke's 7th inning rally. Musashi Tajima (Amherst, MA / Amherst Regional HS) earned the save, coming on in relief in the 9th inning while also scoring a run in the win. Young, Indomenico and Tajima each had a stolen base in the game.
The Cougars are 1-2 regionally and 1-5 overall in the early part of the season. Holyoke will play several home games in the upcoming week (weather permitting), including several regional contests. The Cougars are scheduled to host home games on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday of the upcoming week. Let's go Cougars!
