Game 2-Freshman score: Eagle 12 Vallivue 9. Eagle pitchers only gave up 2 earned runs; great! Defense needs to be more ready next game. Eagle scored 8 earned runs. Played well.
The game stared out with a long umpire delay. We came out flat, but eventually found our groove and turned it into a real ball game. We went through 5 pitchers in the game, but the sticks saved us in the end. A great team effort!
Game 4-Eagle 6, Centennial 2.
After a 2-hour delay while we waited for our opponent to show up, Eagle pitchers Hammond and Pape held Centennial to 2 runs on 3 hits. Eagle scored 6 runs on 6 hits, with Kennedy and May coming through with RBI triples.
Game 5: Eagle 10, Mountain View 1
Starting pitcher Austin Murphy pitched 5 1/3 innings of 2-hit shutout ball, and the defense played errorless baseball. Bats alive today!
Game 6: Eagle 2, Rocky 12.
Rocky had a solid team and came to play ball. Despite a gutsy effort by starting pitcher Jhett Hammond, Eagle’s week off showed and they didn’t come ready to play.
Game 7: Eagle 8, Meridian 4
Max Nichols pitched a great game and A.J. Stein closed the deal. Good offense, good win.
Game 8: Eagle 17, Nampa 0
Pitchers looked good, defense looked good, some of our big hitters learned some things about the importance of being able to hit off-speed pitches, etc. Coach learned Alex Guerrero should probably be in our pitching rotation.
Boys came to play; focused, poised and confident.. Jhett Hammond put up 4 zeroes and Murphy put up the fifth. That was all that was needed with live bats and solid base running.
Game 10: Eagle 9- Rocky
Boys had some fun and came together as a team to bounce Rocky 9-5. Nichols, Schwers, and Hammond joined in the masterpiece on the mound. The defense got rid of butterflies after the 1st inning, and we had great execution at the plate. It was a tremendous team effort.
