Gettysburg edges Littlestown thanks to strong mound work

In an exciting baseball matchup on Monday afternoon, Gettysburg defeated Littlestown by a count of 3-1 on the Warriors’ home field.

Littlestown started strong with a run in the first inning, but the Warriors quickly answered back, scoring two runs in the second inning and another in the fourth. That lead was to hold up until the end of the game.

Littlestown’s offense struggled, only managing to score one run on three hits. Ryan Jones, the designated hitter, was the standout for the Thunderbolts, going 2 for 3 with a double and driving in the team’s only run. Peyton Bossom also contributed a hit, but that was the extent of the Bolts’ offense.

The story of the game, however, was the combined pitching performance of Gettysburg’s Tegan Kuhns and Wes Coolbaugh, who combined for 14 strikeouts while surrendering just three hits. Kuhns went the first four frames, striking out 11, while Coolbaugh tossed three innings, fanning three. Each hurler walked just one Littlestown batter.

Jacob Dennis started on the mound for Littlestown and was charged with the loss. He pitched five innings, allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits while walking three and striking out seven batters. Colby Hahn came on in relief, throwing one scoreless inning and striking out one.

The Gettysburg Warriors Varsity capitalized on their opportunities, with winning pitcher T. Kuhns throwing 76 pitches and securing 53 strikes. The Warriors’ offense was bolstered by Bryce Rudisill, Hunter Gillin,  Coolbaugh, and Wyatt Sokol.

Gettysburg will see its next action on Wednesday, on the road at Bishop McDevitt, while Littlestown will visit Bermudian Springs on Thursday.
