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.
