HSBSB: HHCA can’t overcome miscues vs. Coastal

Hilton Head Christian Academy baseball suffered a tough defeat on Thursday, falling 8-6 at Coastal Homeschool. 

It was a disappointing defensive outing for HHCA, which outhit the Hurricanes 10-5 but was undone by five errors to Coastal’s none. Eagles coach Matt Smith said his team showed improvement, though, an encouraging sign for a squad that starts four freshmen.

The Eagles started strong, scoring twice in the top of the first to grab the early lead on a pair of singles from Keene Reese and Jacob Eddy, but the Hurricanes answered right back with a three-spot in the bottom half. Coastal tallied another three in the second to take a commanding 6-2 advantage.

HHCA fought back in the fourth, plating three thanks to a trio of two-out knocks to close within one before the home team tacked on another in the fifth to make it 7-5. Both squads exchanged a run in the sixth, and HHCA couldn’t find the late magic in the top half of the seventh. 

Jacob Eddy shined at the plate, going 3-for-3 with a pair of RBIs. Reese and Michael Zoodsma both collected two hits and drove in a run. 

Ben Eddy tossed three solid innings on the mound in relief, striking out five Hurricanes while not allowing an earned run. 

HHCA (0-2) travels to Colleton Prep on Monday.
