Kalamazoo Christian hosted Centreville Tuesday for a competitive non-conference baseball doubleheader for the final week of the regular season. The Bulldogs took game one 8-7, followed by a 9-6 Comet victory in game two.
Centreville jumped ahead with four runs in the first two innings and another four in the seventh inning of game one. Jared Spencer was untouchable over a six inning start with 18 strikeouts, zero hits allowed, and three walks. However, once Spencer left due the pitch count limit, the Comets nearly erased the hole with a seven-run seventh. Offensively, the Spencer brothers led the way with Jacob getting four RBI on two hits. Jared had four hits and two runs.
Game two saw the roles switched with K-Christian going ahead 9-0 after the third inning. The Bulldogs scored five in the final inning but also couldn’t complete the rally. In five innings, Chris Terpstra allowed one run and five hits for KC with six strikeouts and three walks. Will Zuiderveen had four RBI on two doubles and Wyatt Steensma added three hits.
With Tuesday’s result, Centreville sits at 18-4. The Bulldogs host Mendon in a league doubleheader Wednesday. Kalamazoo Christian moves to 18-12-1 and close their regular season at Loy Norrix next Tuesday.
