The Cowboy varsity baseball team traveled to Tallahassee Thursday night for their fourth district game of the season, and the bats were hot. Let’s count – - 15 runs, 12 hits, 10 free passes, 10 RBI’s, 5 doubles, a triple and about forty dedicated hell raisers in the stands. As can be expected, the game ended in a 15 to 5 blowout of the host Florida High Seminoles. The Cowboys season record now stands at 6 wins and 4 losses, and district record at 2 wins and 2 losses. The Cowboys are still making mistakes in the field, costing starting pitcher Aaron Brown 4 unearned runs, but their making some great defensive plays as well. Jake Latner sprinted down and robbed a sure to be double, Zack Money turned an inning ending double play, and Heath Carroll made two awesome saves at first. Definite progress form their defensive struggles Tuesday night.
On the night, Aaron Brown, Heath Carroll and DJ Mcknight had three hits each including a double and two RBI’s for Aaron, two doubles and two RBI’s for Heath, and a double, triple and four RBI’s for DJ. Also on the night, Patrick Bowen pitched in with a double and an RBI, Taylor Howell added a single and an RBI, and Dustin Bezick came through with a pinch hit single. Jake and Zack walked and scored twice, and for the fifth time this year Jarrod Burns was plunked with a pitch. Aaron pitched 4 1/3 strong innings for the victory allowing only one earned run and Heath provided great relief getting the final five outs without allowing a base runner.
Alright folks, come join the guys Saturday, March 10th as they play host to Melody Christian Academy at 5:00pm. Before the contest, the Cowboys will also be hosting an appreciation luncheon for this year’s dedicated sponsors at 4:00pm.
