Cadets finally get to take down Cougars

CLAYTON — After two days of complications beyond its control, the Cascade baseball team sent North Putnam home with a 6-4 defeat on Tuesday.

The Cadets had solid pitching, defense and hitting, and scored in all but one inning in their 10th win of the season.

"We played a complete game," Cascade coach Jason Thompson said. "One thing we've struggled with is putting some hits together. Our pitching's been pretty strong, and it's good to see the bats catch up."

Cascade (10-4) was supposed to get a crack at North Putnam on Monday, but got a call en route to the school telling it to turn around because there were no umpires. On Tuesday, the Cadets had to wait nearly 45 minutes as the Cougars' bus pulled in late.

Once the teams finally took the diamond, Cascade got on the board quickly, as a two-out single by Nate Stonebraker drove in Schuyler Hart in the first inning.

With a runner in scoring position in the second, center fielder Stone Hyten made a diving catch to prevent a hit, and likely a run. He had two more hit-saving rundowns in the fourth.

"He plays a special role for us," Thompson said. "He doesn't get to hit very much, but he's taken that in stride. He knows his role in center field and did a fantastic job today."

Cascade loaded the bases to start the bottom of the second, and Mitch Duncan sent Sawyer Donovan home with a single. It was the only run the Cadets plated, as they followed with a bunt double play and a pop out.

An RBI single by Donovan and a steal of home by Landon Montgomery on a wild pitch bumped Cascade’s lead in the third, and a sacrifice by Hart brought home Chase Edwards in the fourth.
