Haganís Bounces Back


Haganís Funeral Home bounced back from their dispiriting 10-2 loss to Carman Corp. just two days ago by cruising to a 10-0 victory over the same Carman team.  The win raised Haganís record to 4 wins against 2 losses.  On this night, Haganís put together the full packageópitching, hitting, and fieldingóin what was by most accounts their strongest performance of the season.  John Owens went the distance on the mound for Haganís, throwing a complete-game shutout gem.  Owens spread just 3 hits over 5 innings.  He walked just 2 batters and struck out 7.  He was aided by an unusually strong Haganís defense that featured superb plays by Kyle Tommasino, Bryan Leonard, and Ethan Heller.  Haganís offense was hot early and often scoring runs in every inning except the 2nd.  Everyone contributed to the offensive outburst, but Leonard put the game out of reach when he powered a 2-RBI double to deep left-center field in the bottom of the 4th inning.


Carman got hits from Tim Aman, Kevin Mohollen, and Josh Bannister, but they were unable to mount a sustained attack on this night.  Bannister, Mohollen, and Alex McLaughlin handled the pitching duties for Carman.
