The Cowboy varsity baseball team traveled to Jasper Monday night expecting just a non-district contest against the Hamilton County Trojans, but they had to brave swarms of mosquitoes as well to bring home their eleventh win of the season. The Cowboys won the game 7 to 3 against the Trojans and their blood sucking mates and now have a season record of 11 wins and 4 losses, with a district record of 4 wins and 2 losses. Jarrod Burns picked up his third win of the season pitching 4 shutout innings, and DJ McKnight pitched 3 innings in relief for his second save of the season.
On the night, Heath Carroll and DJ McKnight had two hits each including two triples for DJ and four RBI’s for Heath. Adam Odiorne contributed with a single and two RBI’s, and Dustin Bezick, Jarrod Burns, Taylor Howell, and Jake Latner pitched in with singles. The traveling Cowboy fans came through as well killing in bunches the flying vampires that infested the premises.
The Cowboys take the field again Tuesday, March 20th when they travel to Live Oak for a contest against Melody Christian Academy at 5:00pm.
FINAL REMINDER – The next home game is Thursday, March 22nd at 7:00pm against the Taylor County Bulldogs, so rest up and come out Thursday and help the Cowboys whip them dogs.
