Wolverines still looking for first baseball win

Wed, 05/15/2019 - 8:00am

A pair of losses to Mt. Valley and Telstar high schools dropped the Wolverines to 0-8 in the Mountain Valley Conference. Wiscasset Middle High School’s makeup game with Spruce Mountain scheduled for Tuesday, May 14 was rained out.

On May 8, the Wolverines were soundly defeated by Mt. Valley in Rumford; the game was called after four and a half innings due to the mercy rule. Multiple pitchers couldn’t shut down the hot-hitting Falcons who scored over 30 runs.

Haiden Dunning pitched for the Wolverines when they faced Telstar at Bethel on Monday, May 13. He struck out three batters, walked two and gave up 11 hits in a 34-1 loss. It was the first win for the Rebels this season.

Dunning and Muhamad Khalique both had base hits. Archie Brewer scored the lone run for Wiscasset, said Coach Gregg Wood.

The Wolverines have two more games this week. On Thursday, May 16 they’ll be away to play the combined team of Carrabec/Madison, also 0-8 in the MVC. At 9 a.m. Saturday, May 18, WMHS will host Class B Oak Hill. The Raiders have a record of five wins and four losses.
