The Cody Cubs returned to action Wednesday as they played host to the Casper Drillers for a non-conference affair.

On a night where the Cubs honored their former coach, the Hall of Famer, Bart Grenz the Cubs would come away with a sweep of the Drillers.

Cody won game 1 by a final of 10-5 and took game 2 by a final of 9-1.

Trey Schroeder would get the start in the 1st of the twin bill and picked up his 8th win of the season. Schroeder went 5 innings, gave up 8 hits, 2 runs, walked 5 and struck out 7.

The Cubs would jump out to an early 10-0 lead in this one, scoring 2 or more runs in the 1st 4 innings.

Trey’s older brother Jack had himself a game at the plate going 3-4 with 2 Home Runs and a Double while driving in 4 RBI’s.

Dominic Phillips and Myles Bailey added a pair of hits each.

Before game 2, the Cubs would honor Coach Grenz. And here’s what Jack Schroeder had to say about his former coach.

Some of Coach Grenz’s biggest accolades include: He coached the Cubs for 21 years, 27 years overall. Coach Grenz is the longest tenured Coach in Cody Baseball history. Coach Grenz stepped down following the 2022 season. He finished his career with a 756-522-1 overall record.

Over 25 players he’s coached in Wyoming have gone on to play at the next level. That numbers pushed to 30 if you include players currently on the roster.

The Cubs then took to the diamond for the nightcap.

Trey Thomasson would continue his stellar pitching going the Complete Game while giving up 1 run on 1 hit and struck out 10. Thomasson picked up his 6th win of the season.

Casper would strike first in this one but Cody respond quickly.

The Cubs led 2-1 after 1 inning of play and downed the Drillers with a big 6-run 4th. In the inning Trey Schroeder had a 2-RBI Single, Jack would launch a 2-RBI Double and Dominic Phillips followed that up with an RBI triple in back-to-back-to-back at bats.

Ben Reinker led the way at the plate going 4-4 with 2 runs scored while Trey Schroeder had a pair of hits.

Following all the action the Cubs are now 31-17-1 on the season, 8-2 in conference play.

Up Next: The Cubs will play host to the Powell Pioneers, Friday night, for a Park County Rivalry showdown. Cubs need a sweep to have a chance at the regular season conference title. It’ll be a double header beginning at 5pm, live from Milward L. Simpson Stadium. Friday is also senior night for Cody Cubs baseball.
