Colonels outduel Spartans for a road win

March 15, 2024

Cass shortstop and leadoff hitter, Jesiel Moctezuma.

The Cass Colonels rode the outstanding pitching performances by starter Chase Tatum and relievers Devan Hutchinson and Hunter Lovett to win a low-scoring, 2-0 decision Friday at Campbell in Smyrna.

Tatum scattered three hits and two walks in four scoreless innings to start the game on the mound. Hutchinson did not allow a hit or a walk in his two innings, and Lovett picked up a save with a scoreless final frame. The trio combined for five strikeouts.

Nic Wright doubled home a run in the fourth inning and the Spartans’ defense committed three errors in the top of the seventh that led to a second Cass run.

The Colonels managed only four hits themselves.

Jesiel Moctezuma, Cayden Roberts, and Lovett (double) had one hit.

The loss dropped the host Spartans to a 9-6 record.

Cass (8-6) begins play in Region 7-5A next week with a three-game series against Dalton. The Catamounts are scheduled to host on Monday and Friday. Cass will host Game 2 of the series on Thursday. All three games are set for 5:55 p.m. starts.
