Tuesday, February 2nd, 2016. Tournament Game vs IMG Academy (at Seminole High School)
Coach Tom Hilbert and The Palm Harbor Hurricanes traveled to Seminole High School to take on the national powerhouse squad IMG Academy to start their 2016 season. The Canes were out hit only six hits to their four hits, but the Ascenders - with quality pitching, speed and timely hitting - managed to shut out Palm Harbor 6-0.
Senior Brian Brown got the nod on the hill for the Hurricanes pitching two innings with a strikeout. Senior Colt Mink came in relief for three innings notching two strikeouts of his own. Senior Kyle Bailey also had two strikeouts in his two innings of work on the mound as well.
Offensively, the Canes scattered four hits from Senior AJ Hrica (1-2, walk), Senior Riley Degnan (1-2, walk) , Senior Adam Jurco (1-3) and Junior Daniel Nicolls (1-3).
Palm Harbor faces the Warhawks of Seminole High School this Thursday, Feb 4 at 7:00 pm at Seminole High School.
TUESDAY, APRIL 21st - DISTRICT SEMI-FINAL LOSS AT HOME VS RIVERVIEW
Thursday, April 21st
Tuesday, April 21st Home District Game vs Sarasota Riverview
The Palm Harbor Hurricanes found themselves in a tough pitcher’s duel on Tuesday afternoon in their first round of the District Tournament. Entering the last inning with the score 0-0, PHU battled Sarasota Riverview in route to a heartbreaking, season ending 4-0 loss.
Junior lefty Riley Degnan started for the Canes and was matching the Rams lefty pitcher inning for inning each notching zero’s on the board. Degnan pitched six full innings allowing only three hits, an unearned run, five strikeouts and one walk. Senior Clayton Moran was called from the pen in the seventh inning.
Offensively, Palm Harbor was connecting early but couldn’t find the gaps. PHU only managed three hits the entire game by junior AJ Hrica, double to lead off the game, single by senior Shane Mullen and another single by junior John Pichman. The Canes rallied in the bottom of the 7th inning putting two runners on but a line drive double play took the air out of the inning.
It was a great season for first year Palm Harbor Coach Tom Hilbert and the Palm Harbor squad. Congrats and good luck to the PHU seniors in their future endeavors and looking forward to watching this very talented baseball team next year.
Thank you for a very entertaining and fantastic season Canes.
