Wildcats overpower Colonels in DH sweep

Austin Daves

The Woodland Wildcats overpowered host Cass in both games of a doubleheader Monday night, winning 16-2 and 15-4.

Woodland, who had already secured the No. 2-seed from Region 7-5A in next week’s Class 5A state playoffs and a home series, outhit the Colonels 30-13 in the two games Monday.

Zach Lambert (2 IP, 0R, 2H, 1BB) collected the opening game pitching win in relief of Wildcats’ starter Ayden Ray (2 IP, 2ER, 2H, 3BB, 2K). Coby Barrett (2 IP, 0R, 1H, 4K) retired the final six outs on the mound for Woodland.

Austin Daves (6 IP, 1ER, 3H, 4BB, 9K) went six innings in the second game to earn the pitching win. Logan Bentley (0.1 IP, 3ER, 5H, 1BB) and Carson Waits (0.2 IP, 0R, 0H, 2K) pitched for the Wildcats in the seventh inning.

Jakiyon Porter and Julian Wright led the Wildcats’ offense in the doubleheader with five hits each. Porter’s efforts included a double, a sacrifice fly, and four RBIs. Wright had a pair of doubles, one triple, and three RBIs. Ray followed with four hits that included two doubles and three RBIs.

Wildcats with three hits each included Chase Carson (two triples, one sac fly, four RBIs), Mason Williams (triple, five RBIs), Brett Good (triple, double, two RBIs), and Conner Lujan (double, sac fly, three RBIs).

Rowan Billings added a pair of doubles for Woodland with three RBIs and Connor Stermer also had two hits including a double and three RBIs.

Five Colonels had two hits each in the doubleheader including Chase Tatum (RBI), Hunter Lovett, Connor Jenkins (RBI), Nic Wright, and Justin Peace (double, two RBIs).

Jesiel Moctezuma (RBI), Cayden Roberts, and Carson Hill had one hit each for Cass.

Hill (4 IP, 10ER, 12H, 3BB, 5K) was tagged with the pitching loss in the opener. Roberts (1 IP, 3R, 2ER, 3H) was the pitcher of record in the second game.

Cass utilized seven other hurlers during the twin bill including Peace (1.1 IP, 3ER, 1H, 3BB, 1K), Wesley Collins (0.2 IP, 3ER, 2H, 1BB), Trenton Payne (2 IP, 2ER, 3H, 2K), Lovett (1 IP, 1K), Tatum (1 IP, 1ER, 1H, 2BB, 2K), Devan Hutchinson (1 IP, 1ER, 1H, 1BB), and Israel Contreras (1 IP, 8ER, 7H, 1BB).

Cass (10-17, 5-9) visits Woodland (17-12, 11-3) Tuesday at 5:55 p.m. to wrap up the regular season schedule.

While the Wildcats have clinched a state playoff berth and will host their first-round series, the Colonels need a win on Tuesday or a Dalton loss at Calhoun Tuesday to claim a berth of their own. A Cass loss and a Dalton win would make the Catamounts the No. 4 seed from Region 7-5A and eliminate the Colonels.
