Trojans trounce Campbell in 17-A baseball opener

From Staff Reports

March 14, 2008 - CAMPBELL - The Cumby Trojans opened their District 17-A baseball season with a one-hit 21-1 victory over the Campbell Indians in a game shortened to five innings due to the run rule.

Senior pitcher Kris Stanford (1-1) went three innings, getting the win, allowing only one hit and one unearned run while striking out seven. Sophomore Brixx Hawthorne pitched two innings of relief, striking out four and walking two.

"Kris really threw the ball well, it was his first time on the mound since February 22, and he really had a lot of zip on the ball," said Cumby head coach Scott Mabe. "His breaking ball was sharp too. I think he was really glad to get back on the hill.

"Brixx did a great job coming in and getting some work. With the rain and wet conditions the past two weeks, I expected us to come out a little rusty. This was a good win for us."

Offensively, the Trojans pounded out 12 hits, led by leadoff hitter Tim Cook going 3-for-3 with two walks. Hawthorne and Jason Wallace had two hits each.

The Trojans (4-5, 1-0) host Martins Mill in a non-district game at 5 p.m. Friday.
