High school baseball: Dundee-Crown defeats Cary-Grove, wins 2 of 3 in series
CARY – Dundee-Crown was not above accepting several gratuitous acts from Cary-Grove.
Eight times a Chargers runner reached base by walk (four), hit by pitch (three) or error (one) and scored.
That kind of opportunistic offense made things extremely difficult on the Trojans, who in the meantime struggled to do much with D-C left-hander Erik Hedmark.
The Chargers rapped 10 hits, and Hedmark threw six strong innings as D-C defeated C-G, 12-3, Saturday to take two of the three games in their Fox Valley Conference baseball series.
“Coach (Matt) Mueller always preaches to us about capitalizing if they make mistakes,” said Hedmark, who moved to 2-2. “We just try to manufacture runs if they do that.”
Hedmark, hitting in the No. 2 slot, was 3 for 3 with on RBI. Behind him, Conor Ryan had a hit and three RBIs, while catcher Jon Mays was 3 for 5 with three RBIs. Those there were the ones to drive in the runs after the seven walks and three hit-by-pitches put Chargers on the bases.
