Prep roundup for Friday, May 2

Western takes sole possession of MIC baseball lead

(Continued)

Taylor Lamble led Maconaquah at the plate, going 3-for-4 with a home run and five RBIs. Will Feller doubled, homered and drove in three runs. Josh Holmes tripled and added three RBIs. Nick Love added three singles and an RBI. Kade Dennis singled and doubled. Jorge Cortez had a double, and Josh Fewell and Vince Taylor both added two singles in a robust offensive day for the Braves.

Matt Simmerman swatted a solo homer for the Comets (6-5, 1-1) in the first, and Blaine Dahl added a pair of singles in the loss.

“I’m surprised with the way our pitchers came out [Thursday],” Eastern coach Nick Sale said. “The wind was crazy, and anything up in the zone the kids were driving out of the ballpark. Playing a lot of games in a short time, dwelling on this does us no good. We have to bounce back and regroup, because we played well all week and can’t let one bad game get us down.”

Cass 11, Taylor 1, 5 innings

The Kings struck for nine runs in the first inning and went on to win in five innings over visiting Taylor.

The Kings improved to 8-4 and 1-1 in the MIC and handed the Titans (5-7, 0-2) their fourth straight loss.

Cass junior right-hander Jake Wilburn allowed one run (unearned) on four hits and two walks in five innings, striking out four.

Ryan Bixler had two hits in the first inning alone for the Kings and finished 3-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored. Wilburn and R.J. Phillips each had RBI doubles in the first. Jake Miller, Brandon Carden and Ty Stover had RBI singles in the opening inning. Carden, Wilburn and Miller each finished with two hits in the contest.

Taylor scored its lone run in the top of the fourth on an error on a fly ball. Jordan Lazaro, Nick Barnett, Jordan Maroney and Jonathan Mahone had the Titans’ four hits in the contest. Starting pitcher Lazaro took the loss. Mike Gammans relieved and allowed two runs (one earned) on six hits in 3 1/3 innings.

It was easy to tell as a red rash covered her arms and her face was painfully swollen. She is one of those people who loves being outdoors yet highly allergic to the common plant. Sometimes I believe she can get the rash by simply looking at the noxious weed.
