Cougars Blast Waltonville
13-1 in Opener
The Cougars got their spring season started in a big way by handing the visiting Waltonville
Spartans a 13-1 defeat at Lions Field on Thursday afternoon.
A combination of stellar defense, strong pitching, and timely hitting were the ingredients for
success on this day and every Cougar garnered some playing time in the 10-run rule affair.
Spencer Patton picked up his first victory of the season by working the first two innings, allowing
no runs on 1 walk and 0 strikeouts.
Trey Garrett came on in relief in the third, followed by Miles Yates in the fourth, and Tyler
Burns in the 5th and the trio combined to allow only 1 hit and one run to close out the game.
Brock Adams and Brian Wodtka led the offensive charge as each bombed 3-run homers and Burns contributed
a pair of hits, one a double, as the Cougars raced out to a 10-0 lead after 2 innings.
Garrett also joined in on the fun as he plated 3 RBI's with his two-run single and bases loaded
