Knights’ bats lead to three-win week
There was nothing passive about this Christian group.
On the baseball diamond, Chicago Christian baseball players were very much the aggressors last week, at least in three of the team’s four outings. All three of those contests featured the Knights amassing a double-digit number of runs and securing easy victories, starting with a Monday demolition of Walther Christian Academy.
That 10-0 triumph over the Broncos in five innings enabled Chicago Christian to begin its Suburban Christian Conference schedule on a definite high note. And things only got worse for Walther the next day, as it was on the receiving end of a 15-0 beating on its home field in another matchup that ended after just five frames.
“We’ve played 11 games against them in our six years here, and this was the first time we ever 10-runned them,” Knights coach Eric Brauer said. “Three times [previously] we went into extra innings with them. Last year, we were lucky to beat them at their place.
“Walther’s usually really, really competitive. They just don’t have real strong pitching, like they’ve had in the past, and we took advantage. We scored a bunch of runs, which makes winning ballgames a lot easier.”
