Pinch hit grand slam 3-29-19 vs DCM. Final Score 4-0.
Pinch hitter Chase Hennessey stepped into the batter’s box with the bases loaded and no outs. Known for hitting deep fly balls in practice, Hennessey put a little extra on his hit.
The pitcher hit a grand slam to center field to give the Vikings a 4-0 Surf League victory over Corona del Mar at Marina High.
An intentional walk to Andrew Sojka followed Holt’s triple. The bases became loaded on an infield error on Kent’s bunt. That set up the heroic moment for Hennessey.
“He’s been showing signs in batting practice,” Marina coach Toby Hess said. “If we need a long ball, we’ll put Chase in. We didn’t necessarily need a home run, we just needed a sac fly. We knew he was confident with hitting the ball in the air. I didn’t expect anyone to hit a long ball off Wilcox.” Source: Chase Hennessey OC Register 3-29-19
