Farmers Start Season 1-1
The Farmers’ baseball team started off their regular season 1-1 this past weekend against Seabury Hall. Molokai took a win on Friday 12-6 with pitching from Kaoli Place, who had 12 strikeouts and one walk.
“All of the hitters in our lineup scored a run. In baseball, that’s a pretty awesome accomplishment,” said coach Mike McCutcheon.
The Farmers were up 5-3 in the fourth inning of Saturday’s game, but Seabury Hall came back with a four-run rally in the seventh inning to win the game 7-8.
Their coach cites costly base-running mistakes and pitching errors.
“I think we let down mentally in Saturday’s game, but physically, I think our team is ready to take on anybody in the division,” said McCutcheon. The baseball team will play St. Anthony next week at home, April 1-2.
All baseball teams Maui Interscholastic League (MIL) Division II are now 1-1.
