DeVine keeps Hanford baseball grounded in doubleheader split

By the Tri-City HeraldMarch 23, 2013 

Hanford senior Jalen DeVine isn’t much of a strikeout pitcher, recording just three in a 12-2 win over Roosevelt in Game 1 of the Falcons’ doubleheader split Saturday at Waits Field.

But he sure knows how to set his defense up for success.

DeVine allowed just two runs on nine hits and kept the ball down in the strike zone while Hanford pounded out 12 runs on 16 hits.

“(DeVine) is a ground ball machine. He makes them swing the bat, and all we have to do is play defense behind him,” Falcons skipper Tom DeWitz said.

DeVine also helped himself on offense, going 4-for-5 with a double and four RBIs. Cody Kowalski, Jake Oram and Austin Taylor each added two hits in Game 1.

The Falcons fell 7-4 in Game 2.
