Burgers' bats are hot in late-season rebound

Senior Mike Curtis, the Burgher's second batter of the game, blasted a ball over the left-field fence for a home run. Soon after, Burgher Junior Lucas Nelson scored on a Tyler Williams RBI single, putting the Burghers up 2-0 in the first inning. Warrensburg held Hartford scoreless until the 6th inning, when the Tanagers scored two runs with singles and base-stealing.

Burgher Sophomore Pitcher Justin Baird then shut down Hartford for the rest of the game while the Burgher offense took over.

In the top of 7th, with one out, the next five Burgher batters in a row scored, with a walk, three straight singles and another walk.

Senior Nick Monroe then sealed the game with a 2-RBI single to left center field.

Reynolds said Tuesday his team had some vital help from batting by the bottom of the lineup - Junior Austin DeMarsh, Senior Nick Monroe, and Junior. Jacob Siletti, who tallied a lot of hits.
