The Douglas High baseball team took down Wooster 6-4 Saturday in Reno to complete a season sweep of the Colts.
The win marked Douglas’ seventh in a row and boosted the Tigers’ season record to 10-1 overall and 6-0 in Northern Division I play. Douglas has recorded two-game sweeps of McQueen, Hug and now Wooster to start the year.
“Wooster, it’s just a hard place to pick up a win,” Douglas coach Bruce Jacobsen said. “The kids battled today and Wooster battled us right back.
“They tied us up at 4 in the fifth inning there and it was a credit to out kids that they got back out in front and were able to put a tough team away.”
Junior ace Kyle Johnson was solid for the Tigers on the mound, striking out eight and walking two while improving to 3-0 on the year. He scattered four hits and gave up just two earned runs.
“Kyle was cruising,” Jacobsen said. “He found a good groove today and just kept at it. Our infield made some errors that helped set up those runs Wooster did score, but Kyle was really sharp out there.”
Cale Kynett pounded out three hits and drove in a run, Dusty Fisher had two hits and three stolen bases and Cody Carter drove in a pair of runs to lead the Tiger offense.
Nolan Weintz and Kaleb Foster both doubled and Teddy Mason and Weintz each drove in a run.
Luke Romero pitched four solid innings in a 13-2 win over the Wooster junior varsity club Saturday in Minden.
Tanner Valenzuela pitched one inning in relief to close out the game.
Michael Mejia hit a single and an inside-the-park home run, Logan Fencl added a pair of singles and Tomas Leitenbauer, Timothy Cadaret and Trevor Tierney all had singles in the win.
Douglas improved to 4-1 in league play with the win.
