Homer baseball opens season with win over Kenai

The Mariners finally got out on the diamond for a game on Wednesday in Kenai, and beat the Kardinals 4-1 to start their official season.

 

Brian Rowe came up big by boing 4-for-4, followed by Tommy Bowe going 2-for-2 and Lucas Schneider going 2-for-3.

Kenai’s lone run came in the fourth inning when Ethan Oliver scored on a double from Dallas Pierren.

“(Kenai coach) John Kennedy always puts together a team that is fundamentally sound, but we played great defense and had great pitching from Zach Haning,” Homer coach Larry Kuhns said.

Haning, a junior, pitched seven innings and struck out six Kenai players and gave up seven hits.

The Mariners head up the Valley this weekend for games against Colony on Friday and Houston on Saturday.
