Time period: April 10-16

Game One: Modrovsky went 2-for-4 and scored a run during a 5-1, Lackawanna League Division 2 win at Riverside, a 2022 division champion, April 10.

Game Two: Along with pitching six of the seven innings in Wednesday’s 8-0, Division 2 win over visiting Old Forge, Modrovsky again went 2-for-4. He had a triple and drove in three runs. Modrovsky struck out nine and walked two while scattering seven hits.

Game Three: Modrovsky went 2-for-4 with a double, run and RBI Friday in a 12-2 victory over Western Wayne.

Game Four: For the fourth time in six days, Modrovsky was 2-for-4 at the plate in Saturday’s 2-1, non-league win at defending District 2 Class 3A champion Lake-Lehman. He had a double and drove in one of the two runs.

Season batting: Modrovsky is batting .300 through eight games with two doubles, a triple, three runs and five RBI.

Season pitching: In three starts, Modrovsky has earned the win each time and has allowed just one earned run. He has struck out 29 while giving up 11 hits, 3 runs (1 earned) and 8 walks in 19 innings. He has an 0.37 earned run average to go along with his 3-0 record.

About Peter: The left-hander has been a winning pitcher since his freshman season and became one of Honesdale’s offensive leaders last season. Modrovsky was 2-1 with a 4.52 ERA as a freshman, then went 3-2 with a 4.33 ERA as a sophomore. Last season, he hit .397 in 21 games with 4 doubles, 7 runs and 10 RBI.

About the Hornets: Honesdale is taking advantage of Lackawanna League realignment from four divisions to three. The Hornets were last in the four-team Division 2 last season with a 4-7 record, but have already exceeded that win total to take the Division 2 lead with a 5-0 start. Honesdale, playing in an eight-team division with teams from the old Division 3, has a half-game lead over Mid Valley, the division’s only other unbeaten. The Hornets are 7-1 overall and rank second out of 10 teams in the ratings race for the eight District 2 Class 4A playoff berths.
