STRONG PITCHING PROPELS EAGLES PAST JARVIS
The Eagles took on Jarvis Christian once again Thursday afternoon at George Dobson Field in Texarkana, TX. TAMUT would take both games on the day with solid pitching performances from Jared Davis (SR/Houston, TX) in Game 1 and Trevor Stone (JR/Fort Worth, TX) in Game 2. The Eagles are now 6-0 against JCC this season. With the win, the Eagles improve to 13-7 on the year.
Eagles 6 – Bulldogs 1
Jared Davis got the nod on the mound making his 6th start of the season. Davis was lights out, striking out ten bulldogs in a complete game five hitters, only giving up one run.
The Bulldogs struck first, scoring a run in the first. TAMUT would answer back with a run of their own on an RBI single by Hunter Reid, scoring Jack Skinner (JR/Hoquiam, WA) from third, making it 1-1 after one inning of play.
The Eagles would score three runs in the second, the first coming by way of a Chris McGinty (JR/Huntsville, TX) solo home run to lead off the inning. After a Tyler Black flies out, Wyatt Stavinoha (JR/Columbus, TX) singled, followed by an Angel Mauricio (SR/Oxnard, CA) walk. Jack Skinner would then come up and hit a hard ground ball to the first baseman, who mishandled it, allowing two runs to score, extending the Eagle lead to 4-1.
TAMUT tacked on two more runs in the 4th. Stavinoha doubled to the left, and Mauricio singled to put runners on 1st and second with one out. Skinner laid down a sacrifice bunt to advance the runners and set up Mateo Martinez (JR/Orland, CA) for RBI single scoring Stavinoha and Ruston Bult (FR/Winnsboro, TX), who was running for Mauricio. The Eagles ended the fourth with a 6-1 lead, and that would be all TAMUT needed for the win.
