Cougars Drop Bomb
On The Bombers
put on quite a power display in this one as three different players went deep in their 15-2 shellacking of the Brownstown
Bombers on Thursday afternoon at Brownstown.
A 10-run uprising in the 3rd inning saw Brock Adams and Trey Garrett both launch
3-run homers to dispel any doubt about the Cougars coming back from an early 2-run deficit.
The onslaught started when Matt Hicks and Brian Wodtka both ripped 1-out singles
and Adams followed with his long home run to left. Nick Jones and Spencer Patton each then singled before Landreth laced
a bullet over the leftfielder's head for an RBI double.
Up stepped Garrett, and with a stiff wind blowing in from left-centerfield, he promptly
blasted his second homer of the season, a towering shot, that landed just beyond the fence in left-center.
But the Cougars still weren't done. Consecutive singles by Miles Yates and Tyler
Burns brought up Hicks for the second time in the inning and he collected an RBI with another hit up the middle. After Adams
walked to load the bases, the final two runs would score when the Brownstown 3rd baseman booted Jones' grounder.
The Cougars tacked on another run in the 4th on Landreth's solo shot and plated
three more in the 5th, highlighted by Patton's run-scoring double and Landreth's third hit of the day, a 2-run single.
Patton picked up his second win of the season by going the distance, allowing 3
hits on 2 walks and 8 strikeouts.
The Cougars are off until next Monday when they travel to Flora to battle the Wolves.
