[May 25, 2007]  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.
