After the rain washed away their Thursday doubleheader against Easton Rapids, the Comets hit the road to face the Mount Pleasant Oilers.

Senior Braedon Stoakes singled with one out in the first, but was stranded as the next two batters were set down.

Junior RJ Bohnet took the mound for the Comets, making his second start of the young season. Bohnet came out chucking, setting down the Oilers in order while striking out 2 in the inning.

The Comets were retired in order in the top of the second.

Bohnet remained efficient in the bottom half, once again retiring the side in order on only 7 pitches.

With two-outs, Senior Aaron West singled, but that was all GL would get in the third.

Looking like a pitcher’s duel, Bohnet locked in getting the first out on a comebacker, a flyout to right and a strike to keep the Oilers quiet.

After Junior Devin Gardella reached in the fourth, Sophomore Logan Todd singled to put two men on for the Comets. Both runners were stranded as the Oilers got the third out on a shallow flyball to right.

After the leadoff man struck out, the Oilers got their first baserunner of the game as Bohnet issued a four-pitch walk. The next man broke up the no-hitter as a double was driven to left. With runners on second and third, Bohnet got a strikeout and a groundout to get out of the jam.

As we head to fifth scoreless, Senior Logan Ashley provided a spark, sending a deep drive to leftfield for a leadoff double. Sophomore Noah Warren hit a groundball to second, moving Ashley to third but Warren was also safe on an error. West hit a groundball to short, scoring the first run of the game. After a Stoakes sacrifice bunt, Junior Logan Hylek lined a single up the middle, scoring Warren and extending the lead. 2-0 Comets as we head to the bottom half.

Now pitching with a lead, Bohnet went back out for the fifth, and started off by getting the leadoff man to groundout to short. After a single and a walk, suddenly the Oilers had another scoring opportunity. That wouldn’t last long as Bohnet picked off the runner at second and struck out the hitter to get out of the inning.

Looking for additional runs, the Comets once again had a scoring threat as Senior Payton Wieber and Warren both walked with one out. However, the next batters were set down quickly without damage.

With the Comets still up 2-0, Bohnet went back out for the sixth and retired to Oilers 1-2-3.

In the top of the seventh, Sophomore Kaden Nowak singled but that was all the offense in the inning for the Comets.

Senior Justin Meister came on for the Comets, looking for his first save of the year. Meister made quick work of the Oilers and closed the door on a 2-0 game one victory for the Comets.

Looking for a sweep, the Comets created a threat in the first inning as West reach on a walk and Stoakes was hit by a pitch. However, with runners on second and third, the next three Comet hitters failed to get the job done, stranding the two.

Junior lefthander Brayden Denny made his Comet debut in game two. Denny came out firing, striking out the first batter he saw. After an error and a walk, the next hitter flew out to Devin Gardella in left and Gardella doubled off the runner at second for an inning ending double-play.

The Comets were set down 1-2-3 in the second.

The Oilers matched the Comets 1-2-3, as Denny set down the side in order.

In the third, Warren and West each walked to begin the inning. After a strikeout, Hylek singled home Warren for the first run of the ballgame. That was all the Comets would get. 1-0 GL.

After the first Oiler hitter singled, catcher Logan Hylek snapped a throw down to second base to get the runner trying to take second. The next two hitters reached on walks. Denny responded after a mound visit, getting the next two batters to strikeout and groundout, respectively.

Despite a leadoff walk by Logan Todd, the Comets failed to get anything going and remained with only one run on the scoreboard.

After a solid performance from starter Brayden Denny, Justin Meister come on in relief in a 1-0 game. Meister set the Oilers down quickly with a strikeout and two flyouts.

West and Stoakes opened the fifth with back-to-back singles. After both advanced on a throwing error, Hylek laid down a perfect suicide squeeze, scoring West. Gardella followed with a sharp single to score Stoakes. The hit parade was on as Nowak also laced a single, followed by a 2-run single from Logan Ashley to give the Comets a 5-0 lead.

The first big miscue of the day occurred, as a dropped popup allowed the leadoff man to reach. The next batter laid down a bunt single, but Hylek threw behind the runner at second for the first out of the inning. Another error led to another baserunner and a groundout resulted in the first run of the day for the Oilers. 5-1 Comets.

Warren reached once again to lead-off the inning as he ripped a single up the middle. West lined a double, chasing the Oiler pitcher. Stoakes was hit once again and Warren scored on a groundball from Hylek. Gardella walked with the bases loaded, forcing in another run, followed by an RBI single from Nowak. Logan Ashley continued his strong game with another RBI, extending the Comet lead 9-1.

Logan Todd came on in relief for the Comets and pitched around a leadoff walk and a single to hold the Oilers scoreless.

The Comets got one baserunner in the seventh, but nothing else as they look to seal the victory in the bottom half.

With a 9-1 lead, Aaron West made his pitching debut for GL. The leadoff man singled for Mt. Pleasant but West got the next batter to flyout. After a hit by pitch, the second out was recorded as a groundball led to a force-out at second base. Another walk loaded the bases for the Oilers, but there are two-outs in the inning. West got the next hitter to hit a groundball to third but the ball was misplayed, resulting in two unearned runs for the Oilers. West got a strikeout to end the game and give the 9-3 game two victory and afternoon sweep to the Comets.
