Yesterday our boys played the Ringgold Rams. Ringgold came into the game 3-5 in the section. Our Raiders came into the game 8-4 overall and 4-4 in section. Coming off a win on Friday against Mount Pleasant, we were ready to come out strong. This game is big because if we win it’s almost certain that we go to playoffs.
The first inning we kept the Rams scoreless. But we came in ready to fire. After a homerun by Colt Sparks we went up 3-0 in the first. Regardless to runners getting on base no teams could get a runner across the plate. Then in the 6th inning the rams rallied and were able to score two runs. Not being able to score we went into the top of the last inning up 3-2. With two outs and runners on first and second our closing pitcher Clay Dean was able to strike out the batter to leave us with the win.
Our starting pitcher, Christian Thomas, threw a great game giving up only two earned runs. Also our closer Clay Dean who pitched 1 1/3 inning did phenomenal keeping them to the two runs they already had. Hits for the Raiders included Christian Thomas with a single, Hunter Chaikcic with a single, Colt Sparks with a three run home run, Wyatt Nehls with a single, and Erick Odum with a single.
