After starting the season 2-0, the boys baseball team lost 4-3 to Leto on Tuesday, Feb. 28.

Ryan Romano scored on a passed ball with two outs in the bottom of the first inning, which put the Terriers up 1-0.

HHS pitcher Patrick Puentes held Leto scoreless for the first three innings, but at the start of the fourth inning, the Falcons scored two runs. However, the Terriers were able to come back and tie the game in the bottom of the fourth inning.

Leto then scored two more runs in the top of the fifth, which ultimately let them win the district game.

At the end of the sixth inning, the Terriers scored one last time, making it a one-run ball game.

Then in the bottom of the seventh inning, the Terriers pushed for a comeback as Romano and Jarrod Cande both reached base on one-out singles, and Tim Elko reached on an intentional walk, which made the bases loaded. Nick Romano then went up to bat, and he hit a hard ground ball to Leto’s third baseman, who caught the ball, stepped on third for the force out and fired across the diamond for the 5-3 double play, which ended the game at 4-3.

“The close ones hurt,” said sophomore Nate Gustafson. “There was a chance that we could have on the game or even extended it.”
