Logan shakes off slow start to blast Northridge, 13-3

<strong>LOGAN— </strong>Coming off an 8-5 loss Tuesday after falling behind early, the Logan baseball team found itself in a 2-0 hole to Northridge after the first inning. This time, however, the Grizzlies responded and outscored the Knights, 13-1 the rest of the way to finish with a 13-3 win in six innings.

Michael Hart was a star for Logan as he had a solid day on the mound for the Grizzlies, going the distance while recording six strikeouts. He also did some work at the plate, as he connected on two doubles.

Trailing 2-1 heading into the bottom of the fourth inning, the Grizzlies reeled off four runs in three straight innings – while only allowing one more in the top of the sixth – en route to the 10-run victory. Along with Hart, Isaac Rhea and Jesse Braddy also connected on doubles for Logan.

On the day, Logan recorded 11 hits, while giving up only five hits and committing just two errors. The win snapped a two-game losing streak for the Grizzlies who had lost four of five coming into the game.

Logan (3-5) will now have a couple of days off before hosting Bear River (11 a.m.) and Weber (1:30 p.m.) in a double header this Saturday, March 30.
