Excel baseball falls to North Cobb Christian
Excel Christian Academy’s baseball club came up on the short end of a 5-1 decision Saturday evening at LakePoint, falling to North Cobb Christian.
One night after picking up their first win of the year with an 11-run outburst, the Eagles’ bats were held relatively silent. Excel hitters managed only three hits in the loss.
North Cobb Christian scored twice in the top of the first, then added single runs in the fourth, fifth, and sixth innings. Excel scored its only run in the sixth. The Eagles loaded the bases on a single and two walks before Darius Thrower scored on a passed ball.
Trace Still, Jordan Wilkie, and Michael Duncan had the Eagles’ hits.
Joseph Cuomo (4 IP, 2H, 3R, 1ER, 2BB, 1K), Wyatt Karlovich (2 IP, 3H, 2ER, 0BB, 2K), and Marco Haro (1 IP, 1H, 0BB) pitched for ECA.
“Our pitchers did well again,” stated Excel head coach Mike Cuomo. “We made a few miscues in the field and we have to put the ball in play more often at the plate, but we will keep working hard.”
Excel (1-4) plays at Mount Paran Christian Monday (Mar 7) at 4:30pm.
