NWCART Game 8
Cody (WY) 13, Juneau (AK) 1
Jackson Schroeder tripled, scored two runs and picked up the winning decision at pitcher as the Coby Cubs cruised to their second win as many days at the Northwest Class A Regional Tournament at Mulcahy Stadium.
Cody posted crooked numbers in each of the four innings in a game that was called early, giving the Cubs their 47th win of the season.
Schroeder struck out three batters in 2.2 innings of scoreless work, leaving the game after 45 pitches to save him for later in the tournament. He blew away most batters with an overpowering fastball, throwing harder than anybody in Alaska.
Juneau’s lone hit off the rocket right hander came off the bat of Christian Ludeman, who smacked a shot into right field.
Schroeder reached base three times on two walks and a standup triple to left field. He scored two runs. Relief pitcher Grady McCarten finished up with 1.1 innings, giving up two hits and one run.
The Cubs (47-13) had baserunners all night on the strength of 10 walks, two hit by pitch and nine hits. They scored five runs in the first, two in the second and three in each of the third and fourth.
Cody center fielder Tristan Blatt recorded an outfield assist after he threw out a baserunner at home in the fourth inning on a beautiful one-hopper to the plate. He also doubled, got hit by a pitch and scored two runs.
Other Cody players with an RBI included Tyler Grenz, Ethan Johnston, Schroeder and McCarten.
Juneau's lone run was driven in by Landon Simonson on a sac fly. The run was set up by base hits from Bodhi Nelson and Kasen Ludeman.
The loss was the first for the Midnight Suns (20-8) in the double-elimination tournament.
