GENESEO – In spite of a solid defense, the Geneseo Blue Devils fell to the Wellsville Lions as pitching stole the show on Wednesday.
The final score was 3-0 Wellsville.
“Defensively and on the mound I really felt like we played well, especially if you consider the fact that we hadn’t been able to use our infield one time prior to this outing,” said Geneseo coach Nick Drollette. “Jake Young pitched pretty well for his first varsity start. He settled in nicely and finished without giving up a walk. In fact our pitchers only gave up one walk and that was an intentional pass. At the plate, we could have obviously done better. But when you start looking through all of the statistics I can’t feel bad either.”
Drollette was pleased with the patience of his batters.
“We had guys on base in 5 of the 7 innings. We worked some good counts and ended up getting walked 9 different times. It was just very smart coaching and pitching because they were clearly staying away from pitching to guys 1-4 and then pitching to contact at the bottom part of the order. Tip your hat to Luke Seeley, he had our number last year and he certainly did last night. That said, I really think the hits are going to start to come.”
