CUYAHOGA FALLS: You know things are going well for your baseball team when all nine of your starting players score at least one run.

Such was the case Monday for Archbishop Hoban when it met host Walsh Jesuit in a North Coast League Blue Division matchup played amid sunshine.

Hoban scored at least one run in all six innings en route to a 17-7 victory in a game shortened by the 10-run rule. Hoban took advantage of 17 hits and four Walsh errors.

“When we came out onto the field we were ready to go, and we wanted this game more than anything else,” Hoban junior Mason Tipton said.

Tipton led the Knights (11-5, 5-0) offensively by going 4-for-5 with two singles, two doubles, three RBI and one run scored. Senior Jack Bennett went 2-for-4 with four RBI and one run scored.

“The dugout provides a lot of energy and keeps us all up and going,” Bennett said.

Hoban junior pitcher Jake Snyder limited Walsh (15-3, 6-1) to one run in three innings of relief to get the win.

“We came out with a lot of confidence and a lot of swag,” said Hoban junior Mack Timbrook, who had two hits, one RBI and three runs. “We put our best effort out there.”

Walsh coach Chris Kaczmar was frustrated by what he saw, especially after the Warriors won 6-3 on Saturday over Toledo St. John’s Jesuit and 2-0 over Cincinnati St. Xavier on Sunday.

“The game of baseball can be so funny where you play so well over the weekend and today we just didn’t have it, obviously,” Kaczmar said. “We made a lot of mistakes and to their credit, they played very, very well. The team that played better won the game.”

Hoban scored two runs apiece in the first and second innings to hold a 4-2 lead. Tipton hit an RBI single in the first and Timbrook smacked a two-run double in the second.

The Knights added one in the third, one in the fourth, five in the fifth and six in the sixth. Junior Nate Montecalvo hit a two-run single in the fifth and Bennett and Tipton each came through with an RBI single. The sixth featured a run-scoring single by freshman Dylan Feltovich, a two-run single by Bennett, a run-scoring double by Tipton.

“This was a team effort,” Feltovich said. “We were fired up to play. We came out ready.”

Hoban freshman Jordan Mick had two hits and scored three runs. Knights junior Isaiah Jackson and senior Ben Lefebvre both scored two runs. Feltovich, Montecalvo, senior Jared Armsey, senior Jerome Hume and freshman Jimmy Salamone all scored a run.

“This is a tribute to our guys,” Hoban coach Patrick Swain said. “The 10 runs [that we won by], it was much closer than that. That is a very good program over there.

“It started when we got off the bus, the intensity was very high. Our kids are very, very tough and this is a special group.”

Freshman Tyler Pettorini went 3-for-3 for Walsh with three runs scored. Senior Kevin Jarvis went 2-for-2 with three RBI and junior Nathan Stahl hit a two-run home run.
