The Armstrong River Hawks Varsity Baseball team survived the storm and delay Thursday afternoon, earning their first win of the season over Lincoln High School 10-0.
The River Hawks and Lincoln Wolverine’s had to wait a bit to start Thursday afternoon, but Armstrong’s starting pitcher Eli Hickman and the River Hawks offense proved the wait was worth it.
Armstrong opened the first inning going up 3-0 before adding 2 more runs to take a 5-0 lead into the third inning.
In the third inning, the River Hawks offense exploded for 4 runs thanks to RBI’s from Jacob Parisi and Dawson Porter as well as 2 RBI’s from starting pitcher Eli Hickman.
Along with throwing a shutout and allowing just one hit through 5 innings (River Hawks win on 10-run rule), Eli finished 2 for 2 at the plate, driving in 2 RBI’s
The River Hawks will look to build on their first win Monday as they travel to Mars High School to take on the Fightin’ Planets.
