Hamilton-Wenham 2, Pentucket 1
Following Thursday’s dramatic extra innings win over Triton, the Pentucket varsity baseball team lost a heartbreaker on Saturday morning, falling to Hamilton-Wenham 2-1.
Pentucket starter Ryan Kuchar was outstanding in defeat, throwing a one-hitter for the Sachems over six innings while striking out nine. Unfortunately, that one hit was a two-run home run in the first inning, which proved to be all the offense Hamilton-Wenham would need after the Sachems went on to strand 11 men on base. Bobby Hallowell was Pentucket’s too performer at the plate, recording 2 hits on the day.
