A local opening to forget for the Junior Elite Warriors

All Granby production came from Wyliam Coulombe, notably author of a solo circuit. He was also the only one on his team to accumulate three hits in this doubleheader.

The awakening was quite brutal after the great 7-3 victory obtained in Coaticook on Friday.

“This evening [samedi], the mix was very bad on our side. We have been flat on the mound and flat at bat,” coldly summed up the new manager of the Guerriers, Martin Bérubé.

“Right now, we have several hitters without a hit after seven or eight appearances. We’re going to put that down to the start of the season!”

This offensive inefficiency somewhat takes away the weight of the difficulties experienced by certain pitchers on Saturday, but we cannot ignore it completely.

During the first game on the schedule, the locals were mainly sunk by a very laborious start from Olivier Martel, who allowed four hits and five runs (all deserved) in two and two-thirds innings.

Then, in the evening, the train derailed at the end of the game, after Jacob Bérubé had to hand over the ball due to a shoulder injury. Rookies Édouard Dionne and Félix then allowed four and two points.

“As I said before, succession will probably be our big problem. And indeed, we have seen that when guys fall behind in a count, it becomes very complicated. We have work ahead of us,” recognized coach Bérubé.

Tuesday evening, his Warriors will receive a visit from the Dukes of Longueuil, against whom things are rarely easy. The powerful Cédric Caron will perhaps return to the mound after a three-day break.

“I repeat myself, but results are secondary for me, especially at the start of the season. Slowly, the guys will understand my vision of baseball and how it should be reflected on the field,” concluded the new member of the Quebec Major Baseball League Hall of Fame.
