The Hawks baseball team came away with a swift victory on Tuesday, beating the Edmonds-Woodway Warriors 13-3. The game ended at the bottom of the 5th inning, not because of the off-and-on rain, but because the Hawks had such a large lead on the Warriors.

The mercy rule was invoked because the Hawks were leading by 10 runs in the bottom of the 5th inning.

The Hawks got to their 10-run lead by starting off strong and staying that way the rest of the game. In the first inning they scored five runs, getting them off to an early lead over the Warriors. These five runs proved to be a well-needed start, especially because in the last two games, their only games so far, the Hawks had only one run total.

“This [the huge win over the Warriors] was not expected at all, but you really can’t expect anything in baseball because there are so many factors like the rain for example, and that’s what makes baseball so unique,” Hawks senior  Dominic DeMiero said. DeMiero was the designated hitter for the Hawks in this non-conference matchup.

DeMiero said the rain was a factor players had to adjust for during the game.

“The rain always affects the game, but the turf field does do a good job at absorbing the water. It still made the field slippery and made the ball bounce differently,” DeMiero said.

Jesse Prothero, the starting pitcher for the Hawks, started off the game very strong as well. He struck out the first two batters he went up against and gave up just two runs before Raiden Silva replaced him on the mound for the final two innings. All together, the pitching from both juniors helped keep the Hawks’ big lead.

On the offensive side, DeMiero helped get the team going by scoring in the first along with the forth. Not only that, but he also hit two doubles going 3 for 4 at the plate and driving in two runs.

In the bottom of the 1st inning, DeMiero hit a shot directly at EWHS third baseman Marc Campagnaro. The ball took an unusual bounce and hit Campagnaro in the face. Fortunately, after a thorough evaluation by trainers and coaches, Campagnaro had no signs of a concussion, eye damage, or any broken bones. He did, however, receive a cut near his nose on his cheek. He left the game shortly after and was able to walk off the field without assistance.

“I was expecting [the Warriors’ pitcher] to throw a fast ball and so I was excited to hit the ball. I hit the ball as hard as I could and I saw the ball hit him [Campagnaro] and how he went to the ground as I got to first,” DeMiero said.

“I felt bad because I had hit it as hard as I could and he had to go to the hospital to get a bunch of stiches. After the game I went to talk to him, but I found out that he had gone to the hospital right after it happened,” DeMiero said.

Later, in the 4th inning, the Hawks rallied and scored another seven runs, putting them up by 10. This was a very important inning for the Hawks. If they stopped the Warriors  from scoring any runs in the top of the 5th, they would win by mercy rule.

The Hawks are scheduled to travel to Stanwood to take on the Spartans in their first 3A WesCo league game Wednesday afternoon – weather permitting.
