University Liggett baseball cruises in district play
By Thomas Franz email@example.com
University Liggett cruised to regional play, as Gehrig Anglin dominated an MHSAA Division 3 district tournament at Harper Woods High School on Friday afternoon.
Anglin, a freshman, threw nine innings of no-hit baseball, three of which came in a semifinal win against Harper Woods, and six more came against Detroit Consortium in the final.
The Knights defeated Harper Woods before beating Consortium 7-0 to win a district title.
"He (Anglin) did what he's done all year. He pounded the strike zone and allowed them to put the ball in play, and he had five strikeouts, but we're a good defense, and we're going to make plays out there if he does that," Liggett coach Dan Cimini said.
Offensively, Anglin also had three hits in the final. Nick Azar opened the scoring for the Knights with an RBI single in the first inning that scored Cole Zingas.
Conner McCarron successfully executed a squeeze in the second inning that scored Patrick Broder, and the Knights would go up 3-0 on the same play as Consortium committed a throwing error that allowed Ian Clark to score.
Clark helped put the game away in the four-run fifth inning, as he drove in two runs on a single to right field with the bases loaded.
"I thought our offense did a really good job of playing small ball by moving guys around and getting guys in. We just played really good Liggett baseball," Cimini said.
Liggett advances to play the winner of the Grass Lake district at 10 a.m. on June 7 at Manchester High School. Liggett could potentially play Madison Heights Bishop Foley, the three-time defending Division 3 state champions, in a regional final that same day.
