Your JV baseball team swept the Firebirds of Free State in a double header last night. In game one, the Cougars took a commanding lead by scoring 8 in their half of the first inning and they never looked back going on to win 12-9. The offense was led by Jake Congrove, Drew Martz, Adam Sakati, and Luis Camuenz who all had multiple hits. They also ran wild on the bases with 5 stolen bags. During the night cap, the Cougars continued to be red hot scoring 2 in their half of the first and leading 7-3 after 4 and ending the game 14-3. Congrove and Caleb Shelby held the Firebirds in check offensively. Sakati gave the offense a spark by driving in 4 runs. These wins bring the JV record to 2-0.
The CTeam earned a split winning game one 11-8 but losing the night cap 3-11. Game one was a display of power as Jaxson Cowan starts the season off in fashion (Ricky Henderson style), an opposite field lead off homerun. In the 4th inning Cameron Kelly used a little muscle of his own as he hit a moon shot over the right center fence for a GRAND SLAM! Griffin Nusbaum pitched 3 and 2/3 innings giving up no runs on 2 strike outs and 2 walks. The night cap did not fare so well for the Cougars. They took the lead in the first as Brayden Frazier singled home Cowan and then scored on a wild pitch. The Firebirds came right back with big innings in the 4th and 5th. The Cougars scraped all night, but fell short. Their season record currently stands at 1-1.
Both teams will be back in action March 31st versus the Raiders of SMSouth. The games will be played at the 3&2 complex, fields 2 and 7. First pitch is to be at 4:15pm.
