Tigers JV Soar Above the War Eagles

Posted by Andy Norton at Feb 27, 2010 4:00PM PST ( 0 Comments )
The DCHS Tiger JV squad overcame a six-run deficit and stunned the Landmark Christian Academy War Eagles  by scoring 11 runs in the final two innings to capture their first victory on the 2010 season.   

The Tigers were down by four runs in the top of the sixth, when freshman Connor Moroney blasted a three-run inside the park home run to pull the Tigers even at 8-8. The defense, behind the pitching of Justin Thompson, held the War Eagles at bay in the top of the inning. In the seventh, the Tigers shut the door and posted five more runs to win 13-8.

The Tigers entered the contest a little short handed, minus one coach and two pitchers. Rashad Brown began the game with a single, and then took second on a steal. Moroney brought Brown in with a sacrifice bunt. On defense, Justin Thompson took the hill, and kept the Landmark bats in check to end the inning tied 1-1.

Thompson got the only Tiger hit in the second as he ripped a single through the gap to start the inning. Smart defense and good pitching left DC with two stranded and no runs to end the inning. Several miscues and a blown call in the top of inning allowed Landmark to pull ahead 6-1 after batting around. 

Moroney started the third with an easy stand-up triple and then scored on a passed ball. Right fielder Bill Sheppard cranked out a double but was left stranded by great defensive play by the War Eagles.  

Later in the top of the fifth, DC loaded the bases down 8-2 with no outs. Walks issued by the Landmark bullpen brought the Tigers closer, but still four runs short at 8-4.  

Brown came to the plate in the sixth with Nigel Hale and Jordan Losey on base and no outs. He got his second hit of the day to left center to score two more DC runs. It was then that Moroney stepped to the plate and hit a bomber inside the park home run to right center to even the score.  

“I was rounding first thinking I know he missed it and I’m now thinking triple,” said Moroney. “When I rounded second and saw him (coach) waving me through (third), I knew I had to hurry.” 

In the final inning, DC kept up the pressure to score five more runs beginning with a walk-off double by Kyle Smith. Miriah Campbell reached first, bringing up Jordan Losey who safely bunted the runners around to load the bases with one away. Moroney then drew a walk to put the Tigers up 9-8. Freshman third-baseman Zach Odom drove in another run, followed by Sheppard to score two more. Thompson and Nigel pushed two more runners across the dish for finish the inning 13-8. The defense protected and shutdown the War Eagles to get the victory.  

“We battled back and got a huge pinch hit in the seventh. Everyone is contributing – whether running, defensive subs, hitting – they never gave up,” said Tiger JV Skipper Eric McAfee. “We were down six runs and I told them that if they can do it we can do it. Now let’s go have our big inning and put this game away.”

DC Brings Hot Bats on a Cold Night at Osborne

Posted by Andy Norton at Feb 25, 2010 4:00PM PST ( 0 Comments )
Tigers break out the sticks in the seventh to score 8 runs and put the first win on the books for 2010.

Thursday night, the DCHS Tiger varsity baseball team launched the 2010 season with a convincing come-from-behind win against the Osborne Cardinals. The victory marks the first season opening win in three years and hints at a promising season to come. 

Despite the bone chilling cold, the Cardinals starting rotation, and trailing for five innings, the Tigers never quit. Douglas County bats came alive in the sixth inning and continued through the last inning as the Tigers put away the Cardinals in the seventh to win the game 14-7.

Osborne jumped out early on the Tigers, scoring on four hits and two unearned runs to take a four run lead on the Tigers.

In the top of the third inning, sophomore Ike Carter got the Tigers on the board with a two-run blast over the center field fence. The Cardinals answered with two more runs in the fifth and DC entered the sixth inning down 2-6.

The Tigers found their groove with Jacob Finken coming through with an infield hit to third base. Seniors leaders Michael Graff and Greg Wizner combined for a walk and a single to load the bases. With the table set, Sean Watson connected with a 2 RBI single and Dylan Etheridge finished the inning with another base hit, driving in two more runs and to pull DC even with the Cardinals 6-6.

Osborne would not be denied in the bottom of the sixth and scored another run off winning pitcher Matthew Richards. Richards remained calm retired the remaining Osborne hitters to give the Tigers a chance heading into the last inning.

The Tigers really broke out the bats in the top of the seventh, starting with an infield hit from speedster Gray Thompson and several walks issued by the Osborne relievers. Sophomore Elgine Porter came to the plate with bases loaded and promptly crushed a bases-clearing triple to push DC ahead 11-7.

Sophomore reliever Bryan Campbell took the hill with a commanding 14-7 lead and finished the bottom of the seventh by retiring all three Cardinal batters he faced.

“I was very happy with the way we opened up,” said Tiger Coach Alan Adair. “I was pleased particularly with the play of our younger players. Ike and Elgin really stepped up, with six RBIs between the two, and then Campbell shut the door.

“This was our first opening day win in three years, and to put up 8 runs in the last inning, it really feels good,” Adair continued. “We’ve got to keep the momentum going into tonight against a talented Landmark squad.”
