Grant Hennecke has helped spark the Lodi Flames varsity baseball team’s red-hot league start, with standout performances at the plate and on the mound.
The Flames' senior belted a two-run homer in Wednesday's 8-4 win over Lincoln, then threw a complete-game shutout on Friday to beat defending SJAA champ Tracy on the road. Lodi now sits alone atop the SJAA with a 3-0 league mark.
