I am back with some amazing news for our Panther Baseball fans. Last night we had an intense game against our district rivals, the South Ridge Spartans. Nick Labrada was our starting pitcher for the game that night. He had some rough inning throughout the game but he managed to throw five innings. Labrada had to throw many pitches because he struggled with getting ahead in counts against the hitters. Also, our defense had a rough night as well with some errors in the infield and the outfield. Hector Vazquez then came in the game and pitched an amazing outing with two strikeouts. Unfortunately, Coach Smith made a mistake with player changes and led to Vazquez not closing the game. Therefore, Matt Turner came in with a four run lead and needed three outs to give the Panthers a district victory. Turners was shaky after walking the first two hitters, but he struck out three straight and had an outstanding performance.
Our offense was blowing up that night, we had more then ten hits that game as a team. Our team batting average was over .350 after that game. Ryan Booth was the biggest offensive hitter of the night, he went 4-4 in the game and the team was very impressed. What led to our victory yesterday was our energy. The whole game every player was talking, cheering, and yelling their hearts out. I am positive that at least three players lost their voices last night from yelling so much every time we scored and executed the game correctly. Lets go Panthers! Lets get the next district win against the South Dade Bucaneers! Lets stay..
