REED CITY \u2014 The weather might not be ready for spring baseball, but it appears Reed City\u2019s Hunter Morrison definitely is all set. The Coyote senior opened Reed City\u2019s season with a three-hitter in seven innings, striking out 14 in a 7-0 Central State Activities Association Gold Division win over Newaygo. Stephen Shewan had a grand slam home run. \u201cI was struggling early on,\u201d he said. \u201cMy coach gave me advice to keep my head on the ball.\u201d It was his first career home run. Brandon Wirth had three hits and a walk and scored twice. \u201cIt was nice to get outside,\u201d Reed City coach Marty Shaffer said. \u201cI thought we played well the first game, but kind of lost our focus in the second game.\u201d Shaffer was impressed with Morrison\u2019s performance. \u201cWe realized we\u2019ll rely on him a lot this year,\u201d Shaffer said. \u201cHe doesn\u2019t lose a beat from last year. Here he comes and strikes out 14 the first game. It\u2019s pretty amazing. We\u2019ll rely on him pretty heavily.\u201d The second game went three innings with Newaygo leading 8-5. It was called after three innings on account of darkness and will be made later this year. Wirth was Reed City\u2019s starting pitcher. Weather-permitting, Reed City is home\u00a0with Lake City on Friday.
