Emmaus seeks first LVL win
The Emmaus Lehigh Valley Legion baseball team is still seeking its first win. With some of its players still competing in the high school state playoffs until last Thursday, the legion team dropped its first five games.
Emmaus lost to North Parkland 13-1 last Wednesday, June 8. The Buffaloes’ Sean Rivera allowed just two hits over six innings while striking out 15 batters.
Nicholas Zernhelt and Kaden Zacharda both had hits for the Hornets.
Emmaus lost to Allentown 11-6 last Monday, June 6.
After falling behind 7-0 in the first inning, Emmaus was unable to battle all the way back as four errors and 14 walks hurt the Hornets’ effort.
Zacharda went 2-for-2 with a walk and a run scored. Jackson Lake (2-for-3, 2 runs, RBI) also had a pair of hits for Emmaus.
Whitehall-Coplay shut out Emmaus 12-0 in five innings on June 2 behind a one-hit outing from pitcher Dylan Carfara, who struck out nine batters over five innings. Lake had the only Emmaus hit in the game.
Emmaus fell to Northern Valley 8-2 on May 31 after taking a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning.
The Hornets only had four hits in the loss with Nathan Sauter (3-for-4) accounting for most of the team’s hits.
Emmaus opened the season with a 7-1 loss to the Carbon County Monarchs. Benjamin Sieger went 2-for-4 in the opener.
Emmaus has five games scheduled this week, including Saturday’s game against Lower Macungie at Limeport at 7 p.m. The game is part of the LVL’s Legion Day at the historic ballpark.
The day begins with a 9 a.m. contest between North and South Parkland. Salisbury-Southern Lehigh follows at 11:30 a.m. Northern Valley will take on the Carbon Monarchs at 2 p.m. before Allentown faces Whitehall-Coplay at 4:30 p.m.
