Southold sails past Pierson 6-1, behind impeccable pitching of Luke Hansen

Southold starting pitcher Luke Hansen was masterful on the mound yesterday. Hansen threw five innings of one-hit baseball and recorded 10 strikeouts before coming out of the game at the top of the sixth.

Hansen had total control of the Pierson batters, who struggled to get a handle on his blazing fastball. His relief allowed just one run, and Pierson was done for the night. Final score: Southold 6, Pierson 1.

With yesterday’s win, undefeated Southold improves to 5-0 on the season. 

Southold is scheduled to finish a three-game series against Pierson (3-2) at home today, but the weather forecast makes that start unlikely. Southold’s next home game is Monday, April 10 at 11 a.m.
