Freshmen down Del Campo

Freshman vs Del Campo HS on 3/4/2013 3:30:00 PM
Posted Tuesday, March 05, 2013 by Kevin Loeb

The freshman team again came out with hot bats putting 5 runs on the board in the top of the first inning.  There was also another strong performance by the pitching staff.  #18 J St kept hitters off balance by changing his speeds and hitting his spots completing 4 strong innings of work. The Timberwolves won 7-3.

#6 J. G. got things started immediately leading off with a stand up double.  JG scored stealing 3rd with an overthrow by the catcher. #2 JW drew a walk and a great SAC Bunt by #12 J.R. moved the runner over into scoring position.  A single by #13 A.L. scored JW to make it 2-0.  A.L. took second on the throw home.  #24 D.R. doubled driving in A.L to make it 3-0.  D.R's double was immediately followed by a #15 B.T's double which drove in D.R. making it 4-0.  B.T. took third and a deep sac fly to center field by #4 C.S. scored B.T. to make it 5-0.

Del Campo did little in the bottom of the first as #18 J St kept the hitters off balance.  The only base runner was because of a throwing error.

Woodcreek returned the favor in the top of the second and never really threatened.  Del Camp came out in the bottom of the second with a lead off double.  Trouble deepened as J St. hit the next batter.  With runners on first and second, the next batter attempted a bunt but failed.  On the next pitch the batter faked the bunt and attempted a slap hit but a good read by the #14 J.H. in left fielder allowed him to track and catch the soft fly ball.  The next batter swung and missed as the runner attempted a double steal.  Catcher A.L. popped up and to throw the runner out at third but was interfered with by the batter.  The batter was called out and the runners returned to their bases.  With two outs and the next batter down 0-2, J St made a rare miss and the batter got a hit.  But it was a resulting throwing error that ultimately allowed a run to score.  Woodcreek got out of the inning without allowing further damage.  After two innings, it was 5-1.

Top of the third with the heart of the order coming up, Woodcreek failed to score. Going down 1-2-3.  Del Campo led off their part of the third with a hit batter who subsequently stole second.  A single scored that runner but that was all the damage.  It was 5-2 after three.

The tempo of the game settled down.  Woodcreek had a scoring chance when with two outs as #23 K.P. drove a monster hit to the 'Ivy' going to third standing up.  K.P. was thrown out at home attempting to score on a passed ball ending Woodcreek's scoring chance in the top of the fourth. 

Del Camp lead off with a walk and a steal, but that runner was thrown out on a weird set of circumstances.  After a missed bunt attempt, the runner was well off the base, the Catcher threw down to second, but the runner was safe.  As the Short Stop threw the ball back to the pitcher, the runner got off the bag and J. St. threw it back to J.W. for the put out.  Another walk was issued and the following batter bunted him into scoring position.  With two outs the next batter grounded out to Short Stop to end Del Campo's threat.

The top of the fifth provided more fireworks for Woodcreek.  J.R. lead off with an extremely hard hit up the gap for a stand up triple.  A.L. fought off an 0-2 count to drive him in with a soft liner to left field and took second on the throw home making the score 6-2.  Del Campo made a pitching change.  D.R. reached on a throwing error by hustling down to first.  B.T., attempting a hit-and-run, hit it directly at the second baseman who bobbled the feed to the short stop.  All runners were safe and A.L. scored to make it 7-2.  Woodcreek's scoring ended there with a hard line out and strike out by the next two batters..  Del Campo came out facing a new pitcher in #10 J.S. who promptly shut them down going 1-2-3.

Top of the 6th saw Woodcreek mount a small threat.  With two outs, J R continued his hard hitting with a stand up double.  A L followed by getting hit by a pitch.  That threat ended with a drive back to the pitcher for the put out.  Del Camp managed very little against J S who again set them down 1-2-3.  The sixth ended 7-2.

Woodcreek went quietly in the top of the 7th.  Del Campo made some noise in the bottom of the 7th, but not enough.  J S. struck out the first batter before giving up a double.  A balk put that runner at third.  The following batter singled scoring that runner from third making the score 7-3.  J S recovered and induced a soft flair to the second baseman for two outs.  He then got the next batter to pop up to the third baseman ending the inning and securing the win for the Timberwolves.
