Recovering from their one run loss to Dover on March 25, the Milford High School baseball team shut out both Seaford and Tower Hill this past week.
The first game of the week against Seaford saw a combined one-hitter from Milford juniors Georgie Michael and Chris Huk. The pair also combined to throw 10 strikeouts. The Milford bats were also working well, with doubles from seniors Josh Gorney and Josh James and a triple from senior Jerrell Allen.
The Milford pitchers also combined for a one-hitter against Tower Hill with 10 strikeouts from juniors Jacob Richard, Nick Grant and Huk. Grant not only pitched the closing inning, but he had a home run and two RBIs. Senior catcher Connor Luff also had a three-run double during the game and said that the game was a “great win.” The season is “going as we expected it to. Our one goal is to win a state championship,” said Luff.
Unfortunately for the Bucs, they have yet to play on their own field at the high school and often have to practice and play at the Milford Little League. The newly-constructed high school field is having drainage problems; no set date exists for the team’s return to the field.
The Bucs will only have to play on the Little League field once this week against Laurel. They will play Indian River and Lake Forest away.
