Rock­mart starts re­gion play hot against Ar­muchee

Faces ri­val Cedar­town a se­cond time this week­end

The Standard Journal - - SPORTS - Staff re­ports ROCK­MART

The Rock­mart Yel­low Jack­ets opened re­gion play to a big win at home against Ar­muchee, and look to re­peat that per­for­mance again to­day.

The 11-1 vic­tory at home saw the Jack­ets put up a sev­en­run, fourth in­ning per­for­mance to open their week of play last Tues­day. They put up a sin­gle run in each in­ning over the In­di­ans with the ex­cep­tion of the third, and kept Ar­muchee’s of­fense from scor­ing af­ter a sin­gle run in the first came across home plate to open the game.

Rock­mart played a se­cond time against the In­di­ans on the week, earn­ing a 5-1 win over the In­di­ans to cap off last week. They started out with a three-run first and added a run a-piece in the fourth and sixth in­nings to fin­ish off the In­di­ans in their twogame ro­ta­tion on the week.

The 5-4 Jack­ets stand un­de­feated in re­gion play at 2-0 as the sea­son gets go­ing in earnest, and hopes the weather holds off to al­low teams to get onto the base­ball di­a­mond.

To start off the com­ing week af­ter press time, Rock­mart faces Cedar­town on the road Mon­day (see on­line for more cov­er­age) and then gets into re­gion play in back-to-back games against the Coosa Ea­gles (1-6-1, 0-2 7-AA) at home on Tues­day and away on Fri­day, and hosts Cedar­town this week­end on Satur­day for a noon first pitch. A road trip to Chat­tooga and back again is in the cards for the Jack­ets as well on March 19 and March 22, and they host Cass on March 23.

Both Cedar­town and Rock­mart head into their Mon­day con­test af­ter press time at 5-4 over­all on the year so far.
