Rockford Baseball drops 2 to Glencoe to open the season

Kyle Calder (#11) took the mound in the first game and went 5 innings giving up 6 runs in his first outing of the 2018 baseball season.  Jack Cady (#16) came in to start the 6th and struggled greatly loading the bases with no outs before Christian Swanson (#15) entered the game and finished it out allowing 10 runs.  Final score 16-3.  Connor Cruz had 2 doubles in the game, and that was about the extent of the Rocket offense.


 

The second game of the double header saw JJ Strumbel (#24… yes, he changed his number this year from his old #7) take the mound for the first time this year.  JJ struggled a bit with control but showed signs of a vastly improved fastball.  JJ went the full game giving up 7 runs (4 earned) in a losing effort as the Glencoe Panthers who once again tore the Rockets to shreds winning 7-1.   No real offensive news in this game.
