Kent School’s varsity baseball team played against Choate Saturday, April 6. On a beautiful day at Kent, the team showed their skill and resilience but ultimately lost 12-0.

Despite the lopsided scoreline, the team competed hard from start to finish and never gave up. The team looks to use this game as motivation to improve going forward.

The start of the game was a little shaky for Kent, giving up four runs in the 1st inning. Following that, however, starting pitcher Harry Rose ’19 pitched an impressive four innings, giving up only one run.

At the halfway point of the game, Kent was trailing 5-0. Despite the solid defense, the offense could not seem to gain the runs needed. Team Captain CJ Brito-Trinidad ’19 states “[Choate] jumped on us early. We didn’t play awful, we just weren’t clutch.”

While people were getting on base via walks and hits, Kent came up just short when it came to bringing those runners home. Conor Meisner ’19 eventually came in for Rose as a relief pitcher, but Choate’s offense refused to be stopped, putting up seven more runs resulting in a 12-0 final score.

Brito-Trinidad describes the game, saying, “it was a rough one, we didn’t come out with energy.”

Despite the loss, there were many positives for the team. Brito-Trinidad recognizes some key players, “we had some guys that stepped up, who’ve been looking at to step up, like Daelan Mangiafico ’20.”

The atmosphere was also notably exciting. With beautiful weather, the stands were packed with students, faculty, and parents. Brito-Trinidad tells the Kent community to “keep packing the stands. It’s awesome when we see the crew and lacrosse kids showing their support.”
