Seven different Bearcats drove in runs last Wednesday as the Bearcats drummed Subiaco 12-1 in a conference 4A-4 game.
The final was a huge reversal from when the Bearcats took, essentially, a JV team to Subiaco for a game the Trojans won 14-4. Six starters were out that day to compete in Bearcat Relays.
On Wednesday only Michael Drawbaugh was out of the lineup nursing a hand injury from being hit by a pitch against Maumelle on April 4.
The Bearcats suffered a 3-2 Conference 4A-4 loss to Pottsville on Friday in a game that wasn’t decided until the 12th inning.
The Bearcats scored a run in the first on an infield single by Cody Simpson (3-for-3) that plated Cole Inklebarger. Inklebarger was running for catcher Brandon Wolski who drew a two out walk. James Ray followed with a single and Jacob Krepps struck out but reached when there was no throw to first.
After Dalton Herrera (3-0) worked a perfect second both he and Wolski lifted sacrifice fly balls in the bottom of the inning to make it 3-0.
The game got out of hand in a nine run third that saw eight runs score before the first out was recorded.
It wasn’t that the Trojans didn’t have a chance to record an out but an error started the inning and a second one would follow – Subiaco committed four miscues on the day.
Trevor Jones doubled home two, Matt Berry singled home one on a soft pop that fell just between two fielders, Herrera walked with the bases loaded to chase Nolasko.
Wolski greeted Tencleve with a two run single home and a double by Ray got another two more. Hayden Fennell singled to make it 12-0.
The Bearcats finished with 11 hits, two each by Ray, Jones and Fennell.
A one-out single in the bottom of the 12th propelled the Apaches to a 3-2 win Friday.
Brandon Wolski worked the first eight innings, allowing two rush, only one earned, and Dalton Herrera (3-1) came on after Wolski had pitched the maximum number of innings he was allowed.
Herrera walked Jones leading off the 12th then hit Little. A single by Hawkins loaded the bases before an infield fly for an out. Cole followed with his second RBI of the day.
Pottsville tallied single runs in the first and third innings and the Bearcats got a run in the fifth when Hayden Fennell led off with a walk and scored, and in the sixth when Cody Simpson singled and scored. Another runner was cut down at the plate in the sixth.
