Champs sweep Eagleville

Wednesday, April 19, 2006

The bats were out in force once again as Cascade banged out 11 hits on their way to an 8-3 victory over host Eagleville to finish off a series sweep of the Eagles on Tuesday.

With their sixth straight win, the Champions improved to 15-7 overall and 8-2 in District 9-A, good enough for second place behind Forrest in the district standings.

Cascade wasted little time putting crooked numbers on the board with five runs on five hits in the first inning.

Matt Bain, who doubled and singled, now has 10 RBIs in the last three games combined. J.R. Thomes, Colt Davis, Jeffrey Comstock and Zack Hill all singled twice.

"We did an outstanding job of hitting, even better than yesterday," said Champion coach Chris Parker, whose team hit three home runs and pounded out nine hits in Monday's 10-run victory over Eagleville.

Tyler Bowman controlled the strike zone most of the day as he picked up the win on the hill. Bowman, who threw 71 strikes out of 98 pitches, fanned 11 Eagles and walked two while allowing four hits and three unearned runs.

"Bowman had another great pitching performance," Parker said.

James Blackwell doubled and singled for Eagleville (9-13, 5-3). J.D. Proctor was the losing pitcher.

Cascade skips over to Bell Buckle to take on Webb on Thursday at 4.
