Raiders have tough start to baseball season

Navarre’s baseball team dropped its first two games of the season, falling 9-1 to Pace Saturday after losing 7-5 to Crestview Friday night. 

Navarre (0-2) delayed the start of the season with a rain-out last Thursday, which was rescheduled for Saturday afternoon. So, the first official pitch came Friday night against Crestview where a single inning soaked their chances of winning. 

Jozef Vanselow got the ball for the season opener. He settled down over the next few innings after allowing a run in the first inning. Head coach Chris Williams had the junior hurler on a strict pitch count, which expired in the top of the fourth inning, just after Crestview pushed across two more runs. 

Up 3-0, the Bulldogs’ starting pitcher Avery Dauphin blanked the Raiders for four innings. Navarre’s first baseman, Reid Travis, tagged him for a single, then came around to score on Ethan Andre’s sacrifice fly in the fifth inning.
