Prospect’s baseball team went outside for only the third time Friday, but that didn’t matter to senior second baseman Grant Gerdes.

Gerdes had two of Prospect’s three hits and scored the first run of the season in the bottom of the first inning as the Knights beat Hinsdale Central 2-0 at Heritage Park in Wheeling in the opener for both teams. The loss spoiled the debut for new Hinsdale Central coach Jason Ziemer, who formerly coached at Proviso West.

Prospect’s other run came in the second inning when designated hitter Jack Courtney scored on a passed ball with two outs.

“I’ve been seeing [the ball] really good,” Gerdes said. “I got new contacts. That seems to be going a lot better.”
