Full Game Audio Replay:
Trey Schroeder got the start in the biggest game of his career, so far, and would pitch a complete game. He gave up 8 hits, 5 runs (3 earned) and struck out 6 in a superb performance.
The Cubs got on the board early as they put together a 5-run 2nd inning where all 9 batters were brought to the plate. After Jace Jarrett walked and Ty Peterson singled, the Cubs took advantage offensively. After a Jayvin McAlmond walk to load the bases, Trey Thomasson stepped in and delivered a RBI single to put Cody up early. Jackson Schroeder had an RBI walk in the inning followed by Dominic Phillips bringing home a run after he was hit by a pitch. Trey Schroeder delivered a 2-RBI hit to extend the lead to 5-0.
After Powell got 2 across Cody would answer with 2 of their own in the 4th to bring the lead to 7-2.
The Pioneers would trim the lead once again as Jhett Schwann belted a 3-run Home Run in the top of the 5th to make it 7-5 but Schroeder was to much on the hill to overcome.
This is back-to-back years that the Cubs are District Tournament Champions. The Cubs have earned the No. 1 seed at State.
Up Next: Cody will play host to the Wyoming Legion “A” State Tournament, which will run Monday through Friday at Milward L. Simpson Stadium.
The Cubs will be matched-up with Torrington, the No. 4 seed out of the East, in the first round.
Full schedule coming later.
