It wasn’t an ideal Tuesday for a baseball scrimmage, but Sulphur Springs players did not let the steady mist and fog dampen their enthusiasm.
The Wildcat varsity and junior varsity took on Royse City opponents at Eagle Stadium.
The scrimmage was the third workout of its kind for the Wildcats.
Sulphur Springs head baseball coach Jerrod Hammack said his team is “getting better every day.”
Senior pitcher Colby Suggs was impressive with 11 strikeouts in four innings.
Relief help came from Jake Dougan who fanned four in two innings on the hill.
“We hit the ball well,” Hammack said. “We scored nine runs. Dougan had two doubles. Jace Jackson had two hits. Ben Barrows hit the ball well again. Mason Rawson hit the ball hard twice. Tripp Reeves, Kolton Jones, and Suggs all had a hit. Jocko Spataro continues to impress behind the plate. He threw out a very fast runner trying to steal, by a mile. Shane McQueen, Conner Brackhahn, Grayson North, and Ben Barrows stole several bases.”
The Sulphur Springs junior varsity, coached by Kurt McCain, took a 19-2 decision in scrimmage competition. The Wildcats pounded out 11 hits and made the most of 13 walks and several fielding mistakes. Jose Martinez pitched two innings striking out three, allowing one hit- a solo homer to left field. Cody Carnes allowed one run off one hit, one walk and striking out four.
Top hitters included: Seth Maeker with three RBI from a double; Taz Owsley knocked in four with two singles and a walk; Carnes was also two-for-two with two RBI and a walk; Lane Anderson had two singles and two RBI; Jared Riley had a single and a RBI walk.
