April 11th, 2012

The Bobcats defeated First Presbyterian on Tuesday in an exciting game, 12-11 in 9 innings.

Junior hurler Thomas Smilie earned the win in relief. Offensively, Christian Griffith plated the game winning run in the ninth with a single and added an RBI double in the 6th to put the Bobcats up by 1 run. Other leading hitters include Matt Frank (3 for 4, HBP, 2 runs), John Keuler (3 for 4, BB, HBP) and Austin Loper (2 for 3, Int BB).

Defensively, junior catcher Chris Wesley was instrumental behind the plate with 3 putouts (not including strikeouts), including a double play on a bunt attempt in the 5th inning. Wesley also added an assist on a attempted steal of third in the ninth inning.

The Bobcats host Forest Park at home on Wednesday at 5 PM and travel to Paideia Thursday for another region contest.
