Diamond Notes-Baseball for April 2-April 6

Diamond+Notes-Baseball+for+April+2-April+6

The diamond Coyotes went 2-2 for the week, dropping both games against district foe Henry County but bouncing back by shutting out both Clarksville Christian School and Houston County High School.

Monday, April 1

The Coyotes hosted the Henry County Patriots for the first of back-to-back contests. While Coyote pitching held the Patriots to just three runs, strong pitching from the visitors held the Coyotes to just three hits in a 3-0 loss.

Sophomore Victor Bell got the start on the bump, going five innings while surrendering all three runs, only two of them earned. He struck out three and walked one.

The game was scoreless for the first two innings before Henry County struck for two runs the third inning. The Patriots scored on a sacrifice fly and a single. They added their last run in fifth after the Coyotes committed two infield errors.

The Coyotes’ three hits were from junior Dante Castro and seniors Diego Silva and Yavier Aleman. Patriot pitcher Martez Rack pitched a gem, striking out 11 Coyote batters in six innings.

Tuesday, April 2

The rematch between the Coyotes and Patriots was all Patriots. The home Patriots continued their pitching dominance of the Coyotes in a 13-2 victory in five innings.

Senior Andres Garcia-Ortiz had a rough outing on the bump, surrendering 10 runs (nine earned) in four and one-third innings. He walked seven batters while striking out three. Sophomore Shaun Chumley gave up three runs in relief.

Like Monday’s game, the Coyotes managed just three hits off Patriot pitcher Jack Todd. Seniors Nate Lucas and Diego Silva and sophomore Victor Bell each collected one hit in the loss.

With the losses, the Coyotes’ district record fell to 2-2.

Thursday, April 4

Whatever ailed the Coyotes in the games against Henry County was cured in the game against the visiting Clarksville Christian Centurions. In a game lasting just three innings, the Coyotes pounded out 12 hits in a 19-0 win. At the same time, the Centurions victimized themselves with 10 fielding errors.

Freshman David Noriega picked up the win, allowing just one hit while striking out five batters in two and two-thirds innings.

The Coyotes feasted at the plate, led by Chumley’s 3-for-3 day and runs scored. Sophomores Leo Muniz and Alik George, and freshman Aidan Urdiales added two hits and accounted for 10 runs-batted-in.

Friday, April 5

The Coyotes continued their hot hitting with a 10-0 victory over the Houston County Fighting Irish.

Urdiales started the game on the hill for the home team. In five innings, he struck out 10 batters while surrendering just two walks and no runs.

The Coyotes started the scoring in the first inning after Lucas singled, stole second base, advanced to third after a flyout and scored when Muniz ground out.

They added another run in the second on a Noriega sacrifice fly, scoring Chumley.

The score was 4-0 in the fourth inning when the Coyotes added four more runs to blow the game open. The squad took advantage of multiple wild pitches from Fighting Irish batters.

The game ended by run-rule in the bottom of the sixth after the Coyotes scored two runs.
