Northeast bats go booming

GOOSE LAKE — Unfortunately for Camanche, there was just no avoiding Jared Henfrey and Tevin Stoecker, let alone the rest of the Rebels lineup. Northeast’s fourth and fifth batters combined for two home runs, three doubles, seven RBIs and eight hits Monday, helping to end both games early in the Rebels’ Big East Conference home doubleheader.

Northeast put up 26 runs on 25 hits over 10 innings total, beating the Indians 11-1 in Game 1 and 15-1 in Game 2. (Both games ended with the 10-run rule.) Stoecker and Henfrey also teamed up on the mound in the nightcap — combining for five innings, three hits and one run allowed.

It was satisfying for Rebels coach Tyler Howe, with his team improving to 4-0 in conference play.

“We’ve been pitching well and playing defense well,” Howe said. “Now, we’re getting the bats going. The guys are working hard, and it’s starting to come together a bit.”

Stoecker said: “We’re not going to let up. We’re going to keep going until that last out of the game, because it’s a game — once you’re up, you don’t just cruise. You keep going.”

The Rebels jumped on Camanche immediately with a four-run first inning in Game 1. Henfrey came up for his second at-bat in the second inning and homered to left-center to score three. He added a double in the third inning, scoring two and finished with five RBIs in the game.

Howe and Henfrey both credited hard work in practice as the key to wracking up runs.

“I’ve just been working hard in practice, trying to stay focussed,” Henfrey said. “We’d love to go out Big East champions in its last year.”

Howe said, “(Henfrey’s) been working very hard in pratice, very hard on the field, and it shows.”
