JV sluggers bomb Eagles, 10-3

In Friday’s home opener, the Brady Bulldog junior varsity team spanked the Junction Eagles, 10-3 in their first contest of the season. The Bulldogs came out on fire offensively scoring nine runs in the first two innings. “Everyone was contributing by getting a hit or being patient at the plate and getting walked,” said coach Jeff Hurta. “Casey Poe, Colby Dodds, and Jimmy Flores led the hitting attack by each having two hits. Blake Andrews and Michael Zapata each contributed with one hit. Jeremy Shields and Abraham Cortez were very disciplined at the bat by drawing base on balls each time they stepped in the batters box. Being disciplined and getting key hits were the secrets to our strong success.” According to the coach, Cory Airheart had a superb night on the mound, striking out 10 batters and giving up only five hits on six innings. “I was very impressed with the way Airheart threw for his first time out. He has improved his speed and accuracy since last year,” the coach noted. Overall, I was pleased with the way the guys played and proud of them for getting their first win.
