The Red Hawks had great pitching on Friday night but dropped one to the Dickson County Cougars on Friday night. They needed the offense working to get a win in the second game Saturday. But on Monday night, it was pitching that led Creek Wood to the promised land in the Distict.
Well, that and a number of hiccups with the Montgomery Central defense.
Zeke Lecomte was the only Red Hawk to register more than one hit, going 3-for-3 with a walk and 3 RBI. Philip Creasey went 1-for-2 but scored once, and Devon Higgins had a unique stat line–an RBI and a run, while not registering an at bat due to 3 walks. Indians pitching issued 4 free passes to the Red Hawks with the bases chucked, walking in a run each time.
Connor Pate dazzled on the bump for the home side, however. He needed 116 pitches to work 7 innings complete, scattering 4 hits and 3 walks, allowing an earned run, and fanning 12 in a 6-1 thumping of the Tribe.
Dickson County baseball got a big win to open a series against Centennial, grinding out a 7-4 win over the “other Cougars.” Creek Wood softball got a huge win 4-3 at Class AAA terror Wilson Central Monday night as well.
