The Graham JV Baseball team traveled to Glen Rose on Tuesday night to take on the Tigers and came away with a convincing 14-2 win behind the strong play of Kody Perry.
Perry proved too dominating for the Tigers, as on the mound he allowed no earned runs, walked only two and struck out two, and at the plate he went two for three, driving in one run and scoring two of his own. Coach Brewster was impressed with his pitcher’s performance.
“All I will say is Kody Perry is great every game,” he said. “He’s a competitor, he’s an unselfish player, and as you mentioned... he is always a dual-threat.”
When the run rule was called in the fifth inning, the Steers left Glen Rose confident and ready to take their three game winning streak to Wichita Falls on Saturday, where they will battle Hirschi.
The JV Steers were off to the races pretty quickly when Perry singled on a hard hit ground ball to center field. The inning included a sacrifice out, a stolen base and two runs crossing the plate to lead the Tigers before they ever stepped up to bat.
Glen Rose was blanked in the bottom of the first and second and midway through the third until they finally scored their only two runs. The JV Steers, on the other hand, lit up the scoreboard in the top of the third and saw scores from Adam Wailes on a wild pitch, Chance Hornsey after Russell Dye was hit by a pitch, Kade Darrow after a single to right field by Jacob Jones, Dye after a walk by Steven Kimberling and Jaxon Brockway after a ground ball single to the short stop.
