The Westmoore baseball team run-ruled rival Southmoore on back-to-back nights. Coming off of a four-loss stretch, the Jags were able to rack up 13 runs against the SaberCats on Monday.
Westmoore’s Torey Hart started Monday’s game with a grand slam. Josh Terrell and Hunter Aguirre led the Jags with three runs. Riley Morrow, Torey Hart, Brett Beasley each had two, and Mike Brewster had one.
Monday’s game ended after four innings.
Jags’ head coach Jarod Freeman said his team rested Sunday and came ready to play.
“Last week we had a really rough week,” Freeman said. “We were in that funk… but as a coach, you can’t do anything about it because you’ve got to keep pushing.”
Coach Freeman has kept pushing his team. It was apparent Tuesday night when the Jags scored eight runs on Southmoore.
The SaberCats hung with the Jags for three innings; neither team allowed any runs until the fourth.
“They made some adjustments to their line-up,” Freeman said of Tuesday’s game. “Jaycee Parker was on their mound, and he pitched a great game, especially during those first four innings.”
Westmoore pitcher Mike Brewster had the only home run of the night, along with pitching the shutout.
“Mike kept us in it,” Freeman said. “After he got one run, it got us going. Plus, when he is on the mound, the team thinks they can beat anybody.”
Coach Freeman also said he is excited about his team’s status.
