Colonels top Catamounts 5-4 to win series

Devan Hutchinson needed just five pitches Friday night to close out a 5-4 win over Dalton.

Playing the rubber game of this past week’s three-game series with Dalton Friday night at home, the Cass Colonels saw an early 3-0 lead get away before snagging the lead back in the bottom of the sixth for a 5-4 victory and a 2-1 series win over the Catamounts.

Carson Hill drove in the Colonels’ first inning run before Jesiel Moctezuma and Hunter Lovett drove in one run each to give Cass a 3-0 advantage in the second inning.

Tyler Neises hit a solo home run for Dalton in the top of the fourth to make the score 3-1 but the Colonels responded with a run in the bottom of the inning to regain a three-run lead.

In the top of the fifth Dalton scored twice to narrow the Cass lead to 4-3. One hit, two walks, and a pair of sacrifice flies produced the Catamount runs.

Hunter Lovett started on the mound for Cass and had two hits including one double and one RBI as the Colonels edged Dalton, 5-4.

Dalton then took advantage of a pair of Cass errors, a single, and a sacrifice fly to knot the score at 4-4.

The Colonels regained the lead for good in the bottom of the sixth. Chase Tatum opened the frame with a single and stole second base. He then scored on a Wesley Collins RBI single and a 5-4 lead.

Devan Hutchinson (1 IP, 0R, 0H, 0BB) took over on the mound in the top of the seventh and needed only five pitches in a one-two-three inning of work to pick up a save. Trenton Payne (1 IP, 1R, 0ER, 2H), who pitched in the sixth inning, collected the pitching win. Hunter Lovett (4 IP, 1ER, 3H, 0BB, 1K) pitched the first four innings with Justin Peace (1 IP, 2ER, 1H, 2BB) retired three outs in the fifth inning.

Lovett (double, RBI) and Collins (RBI) had two hits each for Cass. Hill (RBI), Connor Jenkins, Cayden Roberts, Tatum, and Hutchinson finished with one hit apiece. Moctezuma added one RBI.

Dalton slips to 3-12 overall and 1-5 in Region 7-5A.

Cass (10-6, 5-1) plays a three-game region series next week with Calhoun. The Yellow Jackets will host Tuesday and Friday. The Colonels will entertain on Thursday.
