Colonels improve to 3-1 with win at Sonoraville
Jayden Smith tossed six strong innings and Blaine Ingram had three hits as the Cass Colonels won at Sonoraville Friday evening, 4-3. Cass scored single runs in the first and third innings and added two more in the top of the fourth to take a 4-0 lead. The host Phoenix scored twice in the bottom of the second and threatened with a run in the seventh but the Colonels were able to hold on. Jordan Gani (1 IP, 0R, 1H, 3K), who earned a save by closing out the final inning on the mound, stranded two Sonoraville baserunners by striking out the side. Smith picked up the win by scattering three walks and one hit in six innings on the mound. He fanned eight.
In addition to Ingram’s offensive production, Matt Shook had two hits including a double and walked twice. Gani and Logan Nelson had the other Cass base hits. Smith contributed a sacrifice hit. Ingram and Shook stole two bases each and Matt Ballas swiped a base.
Cass (3-1), who handed the Phoenix (2-1) their first loss of the year, plays at Sequoyah Monday at 5:30 p.m.
