The Wal-Mart 13-14-year-old
baseball team began its season with a doubleheader sweep of Leake
Antennae on Thursday night, 8-5 and 12-8. Wal-Mart banged out 12
hits in the opening game. Corey Janssen, Tanner Smith, Garrett
Cooper and Jason Buckles each had two hits. Jake Olson had a hit and
two runs scored. Andy Krusz had a hit and three runs scored. Smith
was the winning pitcher, tossing five innings of two-hit baseball,
striking out nine batters and giving up no earned runs. Austin Jones
got the save, giving up only one hit over two innings.
In the second game, Olson had a double and three runs scored; Krusz
had two hits and three runs scored; and Cooper had a triple and
three runs scored. Krusz was the winning pitcher, allowing only one
run and one hit over four innings and striking out seven Leake
batters. But, it was defense that made the difference for Wal-Mart,
with three put-outs at home and Josh Gill turning an unassisted
double play at second base.
For Leake in the doubleheader, Ryan
Huffer had three hits and four runs scored, while Austin Kirby, Jade
Leake and Corey Jones each had two hits.
