Bobcat baseball team goes 3-0 on Friday-Saturday and clinches at least a share of the TCC

Whiteford’s baseball team moved a step closer to the outright TCC baseball title last week by sweeping Summerfield, 9-3 and 10-0, and beat a solid Airport team 6-0 on Saturday.

The Bobcats improved to 20-4 overall and 10-0 in the TCC.

In Game 1 against Summerfield, Cole Crouch struck out nine in just 4.1 innings of work with Nate Stevens getting the final eight outs, seven on strikeouts. Luke Rasor had two doubles and Logan Tammerine hit a triple. Stevens also had a pair of hits while Ryin Ruddy knocked in two.

In the second game, Cole Giesige started and went one inning and got the win. He had three hits at the plate. Shea Ruddy had two hits and a pair of RBIs and Stevens two hits. Giesige, Levi Hillard and Stevens all had doubles. Four Whiteford pitchers combined for 14 strikeouts in six innings.

The victory gave Whiteford at least a share of the TCC championship with a doubleheader against Erie Mason coming up. Madison is in second place in the league at 8-2.
