SHARE Buffalo Grove has no answer for Glenbrook North’s potent lineup

Glenbrook North 23, Buffalo Grove 8 (6 innings)


Glenbrook North scored a run in every inning and Buffalo Grove used six pitchers to try and slow down the Spartans’ offense Saturday at the GBN Baseball Invite in Northbrook. Glenbrook North starter Dan Ahern used a slippery curveball to keep the Bison off balance and struck out six in four innings of work.


The Spartans’ offense came alive in the sixth inning when it nearly went through the lineup twice and put up 10 runs to pull away. Glenbrook North had nine hits in the frame, only two of which went for extra bases. The Spartans finished the game with 21 hits.


Glenbrook North’s Brice Call got on base in all six of his plate appearances with five hits and a walk. He was the catalyst of the Spartans’ offense all day, starting the rally in the second, third and sixth innings. He scored four runs as well to lead the Spartans.


Glenbrook North had five hits that scored multiple runs, including Matt Tedeschi’s two-run home run to right-center field in the third inning. The first baseman finished the day with four RBI.


“He does an outstanding job and it starts with pitch discipline. He has very good discipline at the plate and rarely does he chase a ball outside the zone.” — Glenbrook North coach Dom Savino on Call
