BELL BUCKLE — On beautiful Saturday afternoon, the Cascade Champions hosted Stewarts Creek for its Senior Day recognition.
Prior to first pitch, seniors Chance Brown, Jaxon Sheffield and Noah McGeary were honored for their efforts during their careers at Cascade.
But what started out as a closely contested game, spiraled in favor of the Red Hawks with two big innings as Stewarts Creek spoiled Cascade’s Senior Day, 18-1.
Zach Crosslin got the start on the mound for Cascade and pitched well for the first three innings.
Stewarts Creek got one run in the top of the first on a RBI single to center field, but worked around three walks and got out of the early jam with a strike out to end the inning.
Cascade evened the game following a leadoff single by Brown, who later scored on an error.
The following two innings were nearly mirror images of both teams, who put up zeroes on the scoreboard.
And then the fourth came.
After a 1-2-3 Cascade third inning, just about everything that could have tilted Stewarts Creek’s direction, did.
The Red Hawks drew four walks in the fourth, but also launched two home runs and connected on a double and a single as well.
By the end of the fourth, Stewarts Creek had built a 12-1 lead.
The Red Hawks went on to mash two more home runs as part of a six-run fifth inning before the final margin of victory.
In total, Stewarts Creek connected on 11 hits, four of which left the yard, while Cascade managed just three hits off Red Hawk pitching.
Chance Brown, Sawyer Lovvorn and Conner Melson each singled in the loss.
Crosslin pitched 3 1/3 innings, giving up five runs on six hits.
Stewarts Creek 100 (11)6 — 18 11 3
Cascade 100 00 — 1 3 2
Cascade: Chance Brown 1-for-3, Sawyer Lovvorn 1-for-2, Conner Melson 1-for-2.
