It's been a rough start to the season for the Spartans. After losing their first seven games by large margins, the Spartans experienced a one-run defeat on Friday night against Loveland. Saturday's sunshine and the thirst for victory were both sweet as Turpin defeated Glen Este 6-5 at Turpin Field.
Turpin played their best game of the year on Friday night. The offense started early as Casey Williams led off the first with a single. After a stolen base, Woody Rosebraugh laid down a bunt to advance the runner. However, the Loveland pitcher threw errantly to first allowing Williams to score.
On a perfect Friday night for baseball at Turpin on April 17, John Pappas (W, 1-2) pitched a gutsy complete game and Jake Silverstein went 3 for 4 including the game winning RBI single to beat Loveland 6-5. The Spartans played well in all three phases of the game: pitching, hitting and defense.
