Douglas wraps up weekend 4-1
March 22, 2013
The Douglas High baseball team certainly didn’t suffer a lack of offense through its first five games of the season.
After opening the season Thursday with an 11-0 win over Fallon, the Tigers rattled off a 12-2 win over Truckee, an 8-4 win over Spanish Springs and an 11-1 win over Carson. Douglas also fell 7-6 to Reed as the Tigers tallied 47 hits and 41 runs in five games.
Douglas ran its record to 3-0 with the Truckee and Spanish Springs wins on Friday.
“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.”
Douglas also got standout performances on the mound.
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.”
Reed dealt Douglas its first loss of the season Saturday.
Cody Carter doubled and drove in a run, Dusty Fisher doubled, Chase White drove in a pair of runs and Nolan Weintz and Teddy Mason each drove in runs in the loss.
Luke Romero picked up the win against Carson in his first varsity start, allowing one run and striking out two while walking one in five innings of work.
Dusty Fisher went 3-for-3 with a double and two RBIs, Johnson drove in two runs, Carter collected two hits, Weintz drove in three runs,
Jimmy King and Dillon Lopez each drove in runs as well.
