Baseball: Douglas tops Truckee, Spanish Springs
March 8, 2013
The Douglas High baseball team certainly hasn’t suffered a lack of offense through its first three games of the season.
The Tigers, fresh off an 11-0 win over Fallon on Thursday, rung up 12-2 and 8-4 wins over Truckee and Spanish Springs at Spanish Springs on Friday to improve to 3-0 on the young season.
“It was up and down the lineup in both games,” Douglas coach Bruce Jacobsen said. “It’s funny, there wasn’t really one guy that stood out. It was everyone coming up with hits and big plays when we needed them.
“Kaleb Foster and Jimmy King each had home runs, but then you’ve got Cody Carter putting down a sacrifice bunt and hitting a sacrifice fly to get some rallies going. Chase White hits a two-run triple, Cale Kynett hits a double. Everyone was stepping up today.”
Douglas also got standout performances on the mound for the second-straight day.
Junior Kyle Johnson picked up the win against Truckee.
“He threw a lot of strikes, which is exactly what we are looking for,” Jacobsen said. “He definitely brought it today. He just keeps getting better for us.”
Junior lefty Cole Peck went seven innings in the win over Spanish Springs.
“He went out there and only gave up two runs through the seventh, then they got a base knock that brought two guys home, but we threw the batter out at second, so we exchanged a couple runs for an out,” Jacobsen said. “Cole kept us in it and kept them off balance. All day we saw good things, offensively, defensively and pitching. There are a lot of positives to build on already.”
