Smokin Hot Bats and Smoked Chicken for the SponsorsMar 12th, 2012 | By Submitted | Category: Sports
The Cowboy varsity baseball team played host to Melody Christian Academy from Live Oak this Saturday afternoon and the bats continued to be hot. The Cowboys had 13 hits including 3 doubles and a home run. As was the case Thursday night in Tallahassee, the Cowboys run ruled their opponent by a score of 12 to 2 leaving their season record at 7 wins and 4 losses, and 2 and 2 in district play. Taylor Howell picked up the victory with four innings of two hit ball, and Jarrod Burns relieved for a scoreless and final inning. This was a Saturday game scheduled specifically to pay tribute to our sponsors, and as Coach Barrs stated, “what a turnout”. Approximately sixty wonderful folks were provided with an appreciation dinner, some great baseball, and a big thank from all the Cowboy players, coaches and parents.
On the night, Patrick Bowen led the way going 3 for 3 at the plate with a double and 2 RBI’s. Aaron Brown, Heath Carroll, Jake Latner and DJ Mcknight added two hits each including a home run by Aaron and a double by Jake. Also on the night, Jarrod Burns provided a pinch hit 2 RBI double, and Taylor Howell had an RBI single.
The Cowboys take the field next when they travel to Monticello, Monday, March 12th for a 4:30pm contest against the Aucilla Christian Warriors then it’s back home for a District contest Tuesday, March 13th at 7:00pm against the Godby Cougars from Tallahassee. This will be a big game in deciding who takes control of the 4A District 2 Baseball Standings.
