Jake Spagrud No-Hitter and Jr. Prep Dominance
Jr. Prep has taken Baseball Alberta 18U AA by storm these last two weekends scoring a combined 78 runs over 6 games.
This past weekend in Clive, Alberta the Wildcats started off hot, scoring 17 runs on 9 hits. Simon Baker had himself a multi-hit day collecting a single and double to cash in two runs while scoring a run himself. Matthew Mcbride joined the multi-hit club with a pair of singles on the day, driving in a run and scoring twice. Meanwhile, Kale Fehr was on base all day long scoring two with an RBI single as well as getting plunked three times, adding a stolen base and scoring twice it was all Wildcats all day.
The real story for the Wildcats took place on the bump. Jake Spagrud was nothing less than dominant, striking out 7 batters through 5 innings on 71 pitches. Jake refused to give up a hit and was two walked batters away from perfection on the mound. The Wildcats were just getting started as they faced Clive and Castor the next day.
Jake Spagrud continued his hot streak as he collected a pair of hits including a single and a double to cash in a run and Simon Baker started the rally launching a homerun followed closely by a Matthew McBride double to the wall and a Berkley Robertson blast. In addition to his home run Berkley cashed in 5 runners and added a double to his tally for the game.
This on top of another dominant pitching performance by Aiden Sawchyn who threw 4 innings allowing only 1 hit and striking out 10 batters. Isaac Edwards cleaned up the last inning with ease striking out 1 batter and retiring the rest in order. Wildcats win 15 - 0
To close out the weekend Jr. Prep took on the Castor Raiders. Blake Borduzak led the offensive charge, driving in two runs on two hits while scoring twice himself. Will Marshall and Jackson Auriemma both doubled in the game with Marshall driving in two runs and Auriemma scoring twice. Evan Knox was a presence on the base-paths reaching on three walks that afternoon. On the bump against Castor Simon Baker threw 101 pitches allowing 3 hits and 3 unearned runs while striking out 8. Borduzak cleaned up the last two innings allowing 2 hits and striking out 1.
The Wildcats look to continue their dominance in Baseball Alberta League play in their upcoming weekends and are excited at their prospects for this next season.
