I’ll never play another home game for Ketchikan High School. Us seniors went out on a good note with a 6-3 win over Sitka. I’m glad that we won our final home game, because there are many people who will never see us play baseball again. It’s crazy to think that it was my last game at Walker Field.
In the first game of Friday’s double header, we piled on five runs in the first inning and I felt like that really set the tone for the game. We scored again in 2nd inning, and then in the 4th, Brock scored on a wild pitch to extend to lead to 7-0. Sitka scored in the sixth, but by then it was too late for them and we won 9-2
Game two was a little different. We made some mistakes in the first inning and Sitka had a 2-0 lead. Sitka then added another run in the third to extend their lead to 3-0. Our next time up, Gavin stoked a 2 RBI double in the gap to make it 3-2. Sitka then scored three runs in the fifth to make their lead to 6-2. After a play at home where Gavin was called out trying to score, coach Dan was thrown out of the game arguing the call. Though we lost one our coaches, I felt like ejection sparked a rally for us. We scored two more runs in 6th, but we eventually lost 6-5.
Senior night started with senior recognition at 11:30, and the game at noon. We scored two runs in the second inning, and two more in the third. Liam threw a complete game, and had 0 earned runs. We won 6-3.
