Skowronski helps himself

Clark baseball remained undefeated in district, beating the Jay Mustangs 14-10 in 7 long innings of play.  Starting on the mound for the Cougars was Ryan Skowronski.

Clark’s first at bat saw 6 batters step into the box, recording 2 walks (Cervantes & Dullnig) and a RBI single by Matt Cohen. In Jay’s first at bat, a home run set the stage for a tough game.  Clark defense quickly took care of the next batters to close out the inning.

In the 3rd inning, Jay scored another run, giving Jay a 2-1 lead at the end of 3.  Jay scored another 3 runs in the bottom of the 4th and Chris Werland took the mound to get the last Jay out; score Jay 5, Clark 1.

At the top of the 5th inning, Clark bats said “ENOUGH”.  Hunter McFall led off the inning and hammered  a ball to the wall with a triple. Braden Mattson followed with a single, putting Clark runners on the corners.  Chad Dullnig had a nice sacrifice fly to score McFall and advance Mattson.  Mat Cohen hit a single to score Mattson and Werland’s fielders choice scored Cohen.  The Mustangs were not to be stopped, scoring another 3 runs in the bottom of the 5th, score Jay 8 Clark 4.  

Clark began the 6th with a home run by Ed Moore (Senior).  The next 3 batters got on base with a walk, hit by pitch and error – loading the bases for Dullnig, who had another sacrifice fly to score Cervantes.  Cohen followed and reached base on an error that also scored McFall. Werland stepped to the plate and on the first pitch, hit a 2-run home run. John Henderson followed with a double and Robert Martin hit a single, both scoring.  Cohen took the mound in the middle of the 6th inning and Clark allowed only one Jay run on a Clark error.

Clark entered the 7th inning with a lead for the first time all evening, 11-9.  Clark bats continued to crack with McFall recording his 3rd hit of the evening with a single, Mattson walked and Cohen’s third single of the night drove in McFall to score.  Mattson came home on a error during Werland’s at bat and Cohen was scored on a fielders choice by Henderson – ending the top with 14 runs for Clark.  Defense took the field to hold off the tenacious Mustangs where Cohen faced 5 batters to secure a 3-strike out inning and the win for the Cougars.

It was a great night to watch baseball!  Next up for the Cougars, Warren Monday, March 14th at 2:45 at NS#1.
