Cody Cubs on the Road at Riverton, Sheridan this Week

Written by on June 30, 2020

THE CODY CUBS ARE CURRENTLY RIDING A SIX GAME WIN STREAK AFTER KNOCKING OFF CONFERENCE FOES, POWELL, LOVELL AND GREEN RIVER LAST WEEKEND. THE CUBS HAVE ALSO CLIMBED ABOVE .500 FOR THE FIRST TIME THIS YEAR AS THEY SPORT A 15-12 OVERALL RECORD ON THE YEAR. TWO MAIN CONTRIBUTORS FOR THE CODY CUBS LAST WEEKEND WERE JARED GRENZ AND TRISTAN BLATT. JARED ON THE TEAMS MINDSET VS. THE CONFERENCE OPPONENTS.

WE JUST TRY TO TAKE A APPROACH IN THAT WE’RE GOING TO TRY AND SCORE IN EVERY INNING AND TRY TO STAY AHEAD OF THAT IN CASE OF SEEDING LATER ON. JUST TRYING TO GIVE US OUR BEST CHANCE LATER ON IN THE SEASON.”

TRISTAN ECHOES THAT SENTIMENT SAYING THERE’S A LITTLE EXTRA PUNCH WHEN PLAYING THESE TEAMS.

PROBABLY JUST BECAUSE IT’S TOWARDS THE STATE TOURNAMENT AND THESE ARE THE GUYS WE’RE GOING TO SEE. WE JUST GOT TO BRING IT TO THEM EVERY GAME. I THINK THAT’S WHY WE’VE BEEN UP RECENTLY.”

JARED AND TRISTAN BOTH GO ON TO TALK ABOUT HOW THE CUBS KEEP THIS STREAK ALIVE VS. RIVERTON AND SHERIDAN.

JARED SAYS “JUST KEEP AHEAD ON OUR APPROACHES AT THE PLATE. I THINK WE’RE HITTING A LOT BETTER THAN WE WERE. WORKING ON OUR DEFENSE WITH NO ERRORS AND JUST THROWING A LOT OF STRIKES LIKE WE’VE BEEN DOING. PRETTY CONFIDENT GOING INTO THOSE GAMES, HOPING WE CAN PUT SOME TOGETHER.”

TRISTAN SAYS “I THINK WE COULD CLEAN UP DEFENSE AND LIMIT ERRORS BUT I THINK WE KEEP THIS ENERGY, WE’LL HAVE A PRETTY GOOD SHOT AT RIVERTON AND EVEN SHERIDAN.”

ONE AREA OF THE CUBS GAME THAT HAS BEEN LOST IN THE OFFENSIVE OUTPUT IS JUST HOW WELL THE PITCHING HAS BEEN DOING. CODY PITCHING VS. POWELL HELD THE PIONEERS TO ONE RUN OVER TWO GAMES. FRIDAY NIGHT ETHAN JOHNSTON SHINED IN RELIEF GOING FIVE INNINGS PITCHED, GAVE UP TWO HITS AND STRUCK OUT SEVEN. HEAD COACH BART GRENZ ON WHAT HE’S SEEN FROM THIS TEAM ON THE MOUND.

WHAT I REALLY LIKE IS THEY WENT IN THERE AND THEY THREW STRIKES. THEY WERE CHANGING SPEEDS, THEY WERE CHANGING EYE LEVELS. I THOUGHT THEY MIXED IT UP WELL BUT THE BIGGEST FACTOR IS YOU HAVE TO GO UP THERE AND THROW STRIKES, ESPECIALLY WITH THE SCHEDULE WE PLAY. WE NEED ALL THOSE PITCHERS, WHOEVER WE SEND TO THE MOUND, TO GO THERE AND DO THAT. TODAY (SATURDAY) WE SAW THAT. IT WAS A GREAT DAY FOR US. NOW WE’LL GET A COUPLE OF DAYS OFF TO REST SOME OF THOSE ARMS, TO COME BACK NEXT WEEK.”

THE CODY CUBS ARE BACK IN ACTION TONIGHT, FOR ANOTHER CONFERENCE MATCH-UP, MAKING THE TRIP TO RIVERTON FOR ANOTHER DOUBLE HEADER.  PRE-GAME AT 4:40, FIRST PITCH AT 5PM.

ON THURSDAY THE CUBS ARE IN SHERIDAN TO TAKE ON THE TROOPERS FOR A TWIN BILL THAT GETS UNDERWAY AT 4PM.

JOIN MAC MOREY AND MYSELF FOR ALL THE LIVE ACTION ON KODI.
