FARMINGTON HILLS — The runs came early, and then they came late.
There wasn’t much in between, but the Jaden King took care of the rest.
The North Farmington baseball team kept its impressive season going Tuesday afternoon, picking up the 14th win of the spring with a 5-2 decision against Ann Arbor Pioneer.
“It was a good win,” coach Mike O’Connell said afterwards. “This has been a good program for years. Their coach said they were down a bit this year, but we were happy to come out and play the way we did.”
North Farmington struck early, with a pair of runs in the first inning.
“Those were big,” O’Connell added. “They made a couple mistakes that gave us some chances.
The Raiders added a third run in the second inning.
In the top of the sixth, two errors allowed Pioneer to finally get on the board and trim the lead to 3-2, but North Farmington added two more in the bottom of sixth to seal the win.
“It was one of those games without much action,” O’Connell said. “But we’ll take it.”
King went the distance for the Raiders from the mound. He didn’t allow an earned run while picking up the win.
North Farmington, now 14-3 overall, hosts Farmington Hills Harrison in a home doubleheader Wednesday afternoon.
