Cadets outshine stars

CLAYTON —  The Cascade baseball team was in need of a change of momentum and the Cadets got just that with their 6-3 victory over visiting Western Boone last night.

“We had a pretty good conversation yesterday before practice,” Cascade coach Jason Thompson said. “Some of them may have gotten their feelings hurt. They responded very well. We had a great practice yesterday. After two tough losses on Monday and Wednesday, they came back tonight, ready to go. The attitude and intensity was better and we came out with the result that we wanted.”

Western Boone began the scoring in the second, as CJ McMann singled, stole second and third, and crossed the plate on a throwing error.

Cascade struck back in the bottom of the frame with a pair of runs of its own.

Ty Comer led off the inning by reaching on an error, before Landon Montgomery singled. Comer then scored, as he caught the defense not paying attention after a ground out. Casey Fox picked up an RBI, scoring Montgomery on a ground out.

The Stars responded with two more runs in the top of the third to push back ahead, 3-2.

The Cadets took the lead for good in the bottom of the third, scoring three times.

Sawyer Donovan led off with a single. Drew Scott then reached on an error, before Collin Smith singled to load up the bases. Bailey Blackburn was then hit by a pitch, scoring Donovan. Scott scored on a balk and Smith scored on an error.

“I was very pleased (with the offense),” Thompson said. “We got some hits, laid a bunt down, and we stole some bases. We don’t have, what I would consider, power hitters, so we have to play some small ball and move some runners. They did a nice job with it.”

The Cadets added an insurance run in the fourth, as Fox doubled and crossed the plate.

Blackburn led the way for the Cadets on the mound, going the distance and allowing only three runs on four hits.

“(Blackburn) pitched a nice game,” Thompson said. “He was around the strike zone the whole night. He trusted his defense. They put a lot of balls in play. His job is to throw strikes and our guys will make plays for him.”

Despite the tough start to the week and a couple of upcoming challenges, Thompson hoped the victory gets the Cadets going.

“After two tough losses to begin the week, it’s always nice to end the week with a win,” he said. “We play Heritage Christian (today), which will be two tough ballgames. Hopefully, this will lead into tomorrow’s games and we’ll go from there.”
