After a disappointing two game road stretch where the Varsity Cowboys lost to Suwannee, FL 4 to 3 and Ringgold, GA 16 to 6 , the Cowboy’s baseball team is back at their winning ways. The team traveled to Tallahassee Thursday for a Class 4A Distract 2 contest against the Godby Cougars and came home with a decisive 9 to 1 victory. As a team, the Cowboys had six hits, ten free passes and five RBI’s. With the win, their season record now stands at 3 wins against 2 losses, with a district record of 1 win and 0 losses. Zack Money picked up his second win of the season pitching a complete game with 12 K’s, 3 free passes and 0 earned runs.
On this cold evening, DJ Mcknight led the way at the plate going 1 for 2 with his 3rd HR of the season driving in 3 runs while being intentionally walked twice. Patrick Bowen, Zack Money, Chad Oliver and Akevious Williams added hits, and Jake Latner and Chad Oliver each picked up an RBI. Two big time defensive plays were made in the outfield; one diving catch by Akevious playing in right field and one over the shoulder grab by DJ in center field. Also contributing were Wayne Driggers, Brandon Hammond and Drew Richardson with runs scored. More news worthy of mentioning is the Cowboys check in this week at number 6 in the Big Bend area rankings as voted by Next level baseball.
The Cowboys continue on a nine game road swing today at 4:00pm against Melody Christian Academy in Live Oak.
