The Cowboy varsity baseball team traveled to Monticello Monday night for a non-district contest against the Aucilla Christian Warriors, and the offense continued to roll. The Cowboys let loose for – - 9 runs, 15 hits, 4 free passes, 8 RBI’s, 1 home run, 2 doubles and 5 stolen bases. Looking at the stats, one would think a blowout ensued; however, the 9 to 6 score was closer than the Madison faithful would have wanted. With the win, the Cowboys season record now stands at 8 wins and 4 losses, with a district record of 2 and 2. Jarrod Burns picked up the victory pitching 4 1/3 innings, and Heath Carroll relieved for 2 2/3 innings for his second save of the season.
For the game, DJ McKnight led the way offensively going 3 for 3 at the plate with a double and an RBI. Patrick Bowen, Aaron Brown, Jarrod Burns and Jake Latner each had two hits including a home run and three RBI’s for Jarrod. Also on the night, Zack Money picked up his third double of the season and 2 RBI’s, and Dustin Bezick and Heath Carroll added singles with Heath driving in his 12th run of the season.
The Cowboys take the field next Tuesday, March 13th when they host the Godby Cougars from Tallahassee for a HUGE District Contest at 7:00pm. This will likely be the game that decides Madison’s fate in the 4A District 2 tournament seeding later in the season. Come have a burger or a dog and join the men as they try and stay undefeated at home.
