Wildcats rise past Phoenix; Colonels defeat Spartans

March 7, 2024

Ayden Ray went three for four at the plate and drove in the Wildcats go-ahead run in the top of the seventh inning Thursday night in a 7-3 win at Sonoraville.

The Phoenix led 3-2 heading to the seventh inning before Woodland scored five runs to come from behind. Most of the damage came after there were two outs in the inning.

Zach Lambert picked up the Wildcats’ pitching win by striking out 10 over the final five innings. Lambert did not allow a run or walk while scattering three hits. Ray (1.2 IP, 3ER, 3H, 4BB, 3K) started on the mound for Woodland.

Ray’s three hits included a single in the fourth inning, a single in the sixth, and a go-ahead, two RBI double in the seventh.

Mason Williams (RBI) had two hits. Jake Clowers and Cam Williams contributed one hit. Conner Lujan, Logan Bentley, Joshua Hicks, and Lucas Baker added one RBI.

The loss dropped Sonoraville to a 4-4 record.

Woodland (7-3) hosts Campbell on Saturday.


The Colonels took a 5-1 lead through the first two innings Thursday night and then held on for an 8-4 non-region home victory over the Campbell Spartans. 

Chase Tatum drove in two runs with a double and Trenton Payne two more runs with a single to build a 4-0 lead in the first inning. Nic Wright made it 5-1 with an RBI single in the second inning.

After Campbell narrowed the margin to 5-4, Wright drove in another run with a sacrifice fly and Cayden Roberts scored on a wild pitch in the fourth inning to make the score 7-4. Tatum walked to lead off the Colonels' sixth inning and eventually scored on another wild pitch.

Jacob Johnson (3 IP, 0R, 1H, 1BB, 5K) collected the Colonels’ pitching win in relief of starter Payne (3 IP, 4ER, 3H, 2BB, 3K). Tatum (1 IP, 0R, 1H) allowed one hit but worked a scoreless seventh inning on the mound.

Tatum finished 3-for-3 with a walk, two doubles, and three runs scored. Payne also had three hits including a double and two RBIs. Wright (sac fly, two RBIs) and Jesiel Moctezuma (double) added one hit.

Campbell slipped to 7-5 with their loss.
