Tuesday, April 28, 2015

Mt. Juliet suffered their first district losses of the season, but still came out on top with an 8-2 record. 

A day after beating rival Wilson Central 3-1, the Wildcats came away with a 5-1 win over the Bears with Trey Pruitt’s RBI double the only run producer for the Bears. 

Thursday, the Bears suffered their second district loss of the season, 6-0 to Station Camp. 

Mt. Juliet got payback Friday, as they beat the Bison 3-0. 

Three RBI singles were the difference for the Bears, as they came off the bats of Zach Ehrhart, Aaron Brown and Tyler Warmath. 

Right after that game, the Bears faced off against Riverdale. 

The Bears held the lead for most of the game, but a 5-run seventh by Riverdale put them on top 7-4. 

After falling behind 2-0, the Bears got a run on a wild pitch and another on an error to tie it up. 

In the bottom of the fifth, Warmath gave the Bears the lead with a 2-RBI single, making it 4-2. 

However, Riverdale would have the big inning and came out with the win. 

The Bears got their 20th win of the season Monday, beating LaVergne, 5-0. 

The game stayed a pitcher’s duel for the first six innings, but Mt. Juliet broke it open in the bottom of the sixth inning, pushing four across. 

Josh Gastley got the scoring started with a 2-RBI single, followed a few batters later by Alex DeRiggi’s 2-RBI double. 

Daniel Graves capped off the scoring with a RBI single. 

Tyler Overstreet, Jacob Cole and Ethan Smith combined for the shut out for the Bears. 

The District 9-AAA Tournament kicks off Friday night.
