Cats still seeking second win as season nears mid-point

Wednesday, March 21, 2007

The Wildcats opened the week still looking for their second win of the season, but it eluded them once again as thy moved to 1-7 on the season.

"We've been playing ok defensively," coach Scott Brown said this week. "In fact our defense has kept us in every game. If we don't start scoring some runs we're not going to win any games, though."

Rivercrest 3, Trumann 0

Rivercrest came to town Tuesday and proceeded to shut out the Wildcats, 3-0 even though Trumann's bats were far from silent.

Sophomore Jacob Jones led the Cats with a 2 for 4 day while Wayne Clements, Tejaye Moye and Blaike Jones all finished with one hit in three at-bats.

"We had our chances to score," Brown continued. "In fact we had runners on second and third once with no outs and couldn't do anything positive. We have to make the most of them when chances like that come to us."

Eric Heavner took the loss giving up one unearned run, four hits and four walks.

West Memphis 1, Trumann 0

The Wildcats traveled to West Memphis Friday in hopes of avenging their first loss of the season, 8-3 to the 6A school. But while the Cats fought commendably, they still went down to defeat 1-0 to the Blue Devils.

"This was probably our best defensive game all year," Brown concluded. "But our bats are still not working and as I continue to say, we're not going to win until they do."

Only Clay Jones managed to get a hit out of three at-bats as Blaike Jones took the loss, giving up only three hits of his own while striking out two.

Tomorrow (Thursday) the Cats will travel to Valley View for a 5:30 p.m. game with Batesville to help open the extra innings classic.
