Cougars fall to Stew-Stras,
On Wednesday, the Cougars lost for the first time this season when they dropped a 4-1 decision at Stew-Stras
to the Comets, but rebounded nicely the next day with 13-0 pasting of the visiting Brownstown Bombers.
At Stew-Stras, Spencer Patton allowed only 3 hits, but an untimely walk, a Cougar error, and the 3-run homer
that followed did him in with the score tied at one apiece in the bottom of the fifth.
The Cougar bats didn't fare much better. Comet starting pitcher Tyler Wirth brought his "A" game to the park
on this day as he mowed down 16 Cougar hitters via the strikeout.
The only hits were a first inning single from Trey Garrett and a pair of second-inning singles from Wade Crain
and Tyler Mulvany (RBI).
On Thursday, Garrett twirled a complete-game 2-hitter and the Cougar bats woke up to the tune of 14 hits and
13 runs as they pounded the Bombers in the short-game affair.
Louis Daugherty was the hitting star in this one as he pounded out three hits and collected 8 RBI's. His first
hit scored two when he scorched a hard grounder over the bag at third for a double, and then he followed with back-to-back
home runs in the 3rd and 4th, the last one just dropping over the boards in left for a grand slam.
Other multiple hitters on the day were Miles Yates (2 singles, RBI), Patton (single, 2 doubles), and
Garrett (single, double, 2 RBI's).
The Cougars are off until next Monday when they host the Flora Wolves at 4:30 P.M.
