Bats come alive for unbeaten Friars in two high-scoring wins

Bishop Lynch put its offense on full display on two separate occasions during the past week, riding some stellar hitting to a 3-0 start to the young season.

The Friars (3-0) topped Skyline by a 12-8 count on Friday, then put up 12 more in a five-inning run-rule victory Tuesday against Texas Alliance of Christian Athletes (TACA). After three games, the Friars are averaging 10 runs per contest.

Aaron Hunter led the way in the win against Skyline, hitting for a double, triple, and home run during a 3-for-4 night with three runs and two RBIs. Matt Johnson, Max Danielsen, Westin Walls, and Will Haynes each had two-hit games. The Friars banged out 13 hits, including seven for extra bases.

John McVicker (1-0) earned the win despite just 2 2/3 innings on the mound. McVicker struck out four and walked three but allowed just one hit.

The Friars put up seven runs in the first inning of Tuesday's win over TACA on the way to another 13-hit performance with 10 different players getting at least one hit. Walls, Johnson, and Darries Boyd each had two hits. Boyd tripled and drove in a pair of runs.

Danielsen (2-0) tossed three innings for the win, striking out six and walking four while surrendering just two hits and two earned runs. Lucas Herrmann was stellar in relief, striking out three in three innings of scoreless work.

The Friars hit the road for the first time Thursday when they take on Southwest Christian School at 6:00 pm. They'll be back home Monday to host Dallas Christian at 7:00 pm.
