JCD's Lunsford rings Shawe Hilltoppers up, 6-4
Coach David Bradshaw's varsity baseball team has stepped up
their attack to find their route much more pleasant of late.
No hand outs have been offered, but the team has managed to
pull their efforts together for positive outcomes lifting spirits.
The Eagles defeated the visiting Madison Shawe Hilloppers on
Wednesday evening, May 7, behind left handed hurler Derek Lunsford.
Lunsford had not seen action on the mound since his last outing
which was at Shawe earlier this season, where he also managed
to earn a win.
Pitching well, Lunsford has been helping the team at the plate
as well. He helped his own cause during this game by scoring
three of the Eagles six runs during their six innings of batting.
His aggressive running once on base helps make that possible.
He currntly has 20 stolen bases for the year.
Lunsford drew two walks and turned them into scores along with
his third inning lead off triple, scoring for JCD's second run
of the game off the RBI single by senior teammate Zach Kappes.
Kappes scored the Eagles first run in the bottom of the first
inning after reaching base, moving to second off a Shane Adams
single and scoring off a sacrifice RBI fly delivered by senior
teammate Trent Tucker.
The Eagles play as a team. They win as a team and they take
a loss as a team. With the win, the Eagles are are at 5-2 in
the ORVC race and 8-4 overall.
