CUMBY - The Cumby Trojans opened the 2009 baseball season with a 13-6 win over the Trenton Tigers on Monday.
Trojan Timmy Cook was the winning pitcher allowing three hits and two earned runs in his first start. He also struck out three Tiger hitters. Donnie Rodriguez and C.J. Ringenberg also pitched for the Trojans.
Rodruguez entered the game in the bottom of the fourth inning with runners on second and third and only one out and struck out the first two hitters he faced to end the threat. He continued into the final two innings as well, allowing two hits and striking out five.
The game was shortened to six innings due to darkness. Rodriguez was effective offensively as well with a double and a triple in three trips to the plate driving in two runs.
Trojan catcher Tanner Gomez was three-for-four and two RBIs with a double.
Gomez also threw out two Tiger runners. Clean-up hitter Trojan Jason Wallace was also three-for-four with two RBIs. Teammate Stetson Speights also had two hits.
"It was good to line up and play a real game, we are young and inexperienced at a couple of positions," Cumby Trojan head baseball coach Scott Mabe said. "I like the way our pitchers kept the ball close, Donnie (Rodigruez) really did a good job in relief, coming in and halting their rally."
The Trojans play in the Lone Oak Tournament this week with games against Celeste and host Lone Oak on Thursday beginning at 12:30.
