War­riors get it done away from home

The Catoosa County News - - COMMENTARY - By Scott Herpst

The LFO War­riors were noth­ing if not re­silient last week.

Af­ter pick­ing up a solid road win on Wednes­day, the Redand-White suf­fered a dis­ap­point­ing home loss on Thurs­day, but re­bounded with a win on Fri­day to com­plete a three-day marathon.

LFO 5, Coahulla Creek 1

Zach Coots al­lowed just three hits and struck out four bat­ters in a com­plete-game vic­tory on Wednes­day night as the War­riors kept pace in the Re­gion 6-AAA stand­ings with a win at Coahulla Creek.

The only run Coots al­lowed in the game was an un­earned run in the bot­tom of the sixth with LFO al­ready hold­ing a 3-0 lead.

The Red-and-White got solo runs in three straight in­nings. An­drew Brock sin­gled home a run in the top of the third. Jar­rett McAfee brought in a run in the fourth and a Colt er­ror led to a run in the fifth.

LFO capped the scor­ing in the top of the sev­enth, an­swer­ing Coahulla Creek’s run in the sixth with two of their own. Brock picked up a sec­ond RBI on a fielder’s choice, while an­other er­ror al­lowed the War­riors to score their fi­nal run of the night.

McAfee, Bryce Don­na­hoo and Gio­vanni Bar­roso all had hits for the War­riors, while Bar­roso scored twice.

Har­al­son County 3, LFO 1

The Rebels plated three runs, all in the third in­ning, and made them stand in a vic­tory at LFO on Thurs­day.

Both teams man­aged just four hits on the day. Three of the Rebels’ hits came in the third.

Brock, Bar­roso, Jake Bass and Joseph

Hein­rich had the hits for LFO, all sin­gles, while Bar­roso picked up the lone RBI.

Matthew Trus­ley threw five in­nings, walk­ing three and strik­ing out four. He gave up all four hits and all three runs were earned.

Bass and Ri­ley Mosier also pitched for LFO.

LFO 9, Sono­rav­ille 4

The LFO War­riors bounced back from Thurs­day’s tough loss by scor­ing an­other road win, this one in Cal­houn.

LFO (11-4, 4-2) got an RBI from Trus­ley in the top of the sec­ond in­ning be­fore adding three more runs in the top of the fourth. Jack­son Her­rod had an RBI-sin­gle in the in­ning while the other two runs came home cour­tesy of two Sono­rav­ille er­rors.

The Phoenix touched up Mosier, the LFO starter, for three runs in the bot­tom of the fifth to tighten up the game, but LFO would erupt for five more in the top of the sixth to blow it open.

Trus­ley picked up an RBI and Ja­cob Flana­gan had an RBI-sin­gle in the in­ning be­fore Brock pro­vided the big blow with a three-run homer. Brock fin­ished 3-for-3 with a dou­ble and two runs scored. Her­rod also had a triple and scored twice for the War­riors in the win.

Mosier threw a com­plete game to move to 4-1 on the sea­son. He scat­tered six hits and walked two while fan­ning three. Only two of the runs he al­lowed were earned.

LFO was sched­uled to host Mur­ray County on Tues­day be­fore a trip to Bre­men on Thurs­day. They will be back at home on Fri­day against Adairsville.

All three games are sched­uled to be­gin at 5:55 p.m.
