Playoff Race IS Heating Up

Thursday night the Bears and the Cougars matched up for a double header at Seymour
High School. Game one was the Cougars’ game from the beginning. Jumping out to a 4-0 lead
by the third. Jacob Hoffman got the offense going in the second with an RBI single. In the third
inning, Kevin McCarthy drove in two runs with a single of his own. Brandon Parrott followed
that up with a single to drive in a run to give the Cougars the 4-0 lead. The Bears would get a
run in the top of the fourth when Dalton Cornett singled home Charlie Brown. The Cougars
would answer with four runs in the bottom of the fifth. Lofton Cotton had an RBI single to start
it, Cade Davis scored on a walk, and Brandon Parrott drove in two runs with a single. The
Cougars would add one more in the sixth, and the Bears would attempt to mount a comeback
with two runs in the seventh, but it wouldn’t be enough as the Cougars take game one. The real
story of the Game was the Cougars’ starting pitcher, Colt Williams, who threw a 64-pitch
complete game. He was the star of the game as he had the Bears off balance all night.
Game two was a much different story. The Game was shortened due to weather, but
they were able to get three innings in before the game was called. The Bears scored the only
runs of the game in the third. Gavan Rupe scored on a double by Dalton Cornett to get things
going. Later in the inning Hal Bishop drove in two runs with a single. Christian Nave would also
score on a fielder’s choice to give the Bears the 4-0 lead. That’s when the rain came in forcing
the umpires to call the game. Hal Bishop was the star of game two. His two RBI’s blew the game
open before the rain came in.
The Bears match up with the Eagles at Sevier County on Monday. The Cougars matchup against the copperheads!
