In the 2nd game of the Grand Rapids Union Tournament, the Godwin Heights Wolverines had their best game of the 2018. Down 8-2 in the 2nd inning, the Wolverines held the Lee Rebels scoreless for the rest of regulation. The Wolverine bats tied the scored at 8 in the bottom of the fifth, but the rest of the game was to be quiet for the Godwin Offense.
Senior Austen Veloz had two hits and was < 10' short of a walk off homerun in the 7th. Senior Captain Nick Canales and Junior Cristian Valentin also had two hits in the game. Carlos Hernandez, Diego Martinez, Kyler Fritz, and Andrew Underhill each added hit. The game went to "International Extra Inning Rules" in the 9th where; the inning starts with 1 out, the last player out from the previous inning starts at 2nd base, and each batter starts with a 1-1 count. Sadly for the Wolverines, the Rebels plated two in the top of the 9th and it was all their closer, Pete Betancourt, needed to seal the deal. The Wolverines head to Grand Rapids South Christian on Tuesday to start MHSAA Playoff Action. Game time vs. the Sailors is 4:15.
