Hounds lose 8-0

The Chicago Hounds lost 8-0 to the Aviators today on an absolutely gorgeous day at Winnemac Park. The Hounds are now 14-9 and look to start a winning streak against the Orioles on Tuesday at Winnemac.
The Hounds only had 4 hits today: singles from Mike Marra (#15, EH), Matthew Steffens (#5, SS, P), Brent Schoenbach (#5, 3B), and Stephen Correa Jr. (#20, 1B) were it for hitting. Max Kiefer (#21, LF) and Tim Riggenbach (#8, P) also walked.
That is it for offense, 6 guys on base. Can’t win with that. Tim Riggenbach was solid to start despite giving up 6 runs, Matt Burch (#6, P) pitched a quality inning on 0 days rest, and Steffens made his first appearance of the year on the hill, giving up no runs over 2 innings.
The Hounds had some nice defensive plays–Riggenbach picked off a runner by himself (running him down and tagging him between third and home), Nolan Bielinski (#4, C) threw out a would-be basestealer at third in the first, and Garrett Eddy (#22, RF) threw out 2 runners from right field. Brent Schoenbach (#7, 3B), Kurt Kerrigan (#12, 2B), and Correa Jr. also combined for a 5-4-3 inning ending double play in the 3rd.
The Hounds then worked the field at Winnemac (batter’s box and mound) for 2 hours after the game) and then finished the afternoon at K’s Dugout. I truly love these guys.
