Written by on June 2, 2020

JARED GRENZ KNOCKED IN THE GAME WINNING RUN IN THE BOTTOM OF THE 7TH INNING TUESDAY NIGHT TO PROPEL THE CODY CUBS TO THEIR FIRST WIN IN 2020, 10-9 OVER THE BILLINGS CARDINALS.

CODY PLAYED HOST TO THEIR FIRST GAMES OF THE 2020 SEASON TUESDAY, WELCOMING IN BILLINGS FOR A DOUBLE HEADER IN WHAT WAS THE FIRST LIVE ACTION SPORTS IN THE CITY OF CODY SINCE THE HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL SEASON CONCLUDED.

IN THE FIRST GAME OF THE DOUBLE HEADER BOTH THE CARDINALS AND CUBS STARTED OUT A LITTLE SHAKY, EACH TEAM COMMITTING MULTIPLE ERRORS AND SCORING THREE RUNS BUT EACH TEAM WOULD SETTLE DOWN. THE CARDINALS TACKED ON THREE MORE RUNS IN THE TOP OF THE THIRD. BILLINGS FIRST BASEMAN ROCCO GIOIOSO KNOCKED IN TWO RUNS IN THAT INNING TO GIVE THE CARDINALS THE LEAD, WHICH PROVED TO BE THE GAME WINNING RUNS AS CODY ONLY MANUFACTURED ONE MORE RUN THAT GAME. BILLINGS WON GAME ONE 6-4.

THE SECOND GAME OF THE DOUBLE HEADER SAW BILLINGS SCORE FIVE RUNS IN THE SECOND INNING THANKS IN LARGE PART TO A BASES CLEARING TRIPLE BY KOLTEN WYNIA. THE CUBS, HOWEVER, WOULD BOUNCE BACK. TRAILING 6-0 ENTERING THE THIRD INNING THE CUBS WOULD THEN GO ON A 9-0 RUN. THE CUBS BROUGHT 11 BATTERS TO THE PLATE IN THE 4TH INNING THAT RESULTED IN 5 RUNS SCORED AND LED 9-6 AFTER THE FOURTH.

BILLINGS BATTLED BACK SCORING 3 RUNS IN THE 6TH INNING TO TIE THINGS UP AT 9 A PIECE.

IN THE 7TH, AFTER A CODY PHILLIPS STRIKE OUT DEVYN ENGDAHL GOT THE PARTY STARTED BY DRAWING A WALK. THEN CHAOS COMMENCED. BILLINGS PITCHER JADYN AVERILL TRIED TO PICK OFF ENGDAHL, THREW IT OVER HIS FIRST BASEMAN GIOIOSO. GIOIOSO CORRALLED THE BALL FROM THE FENCE, WENT TO THROW OUT ENGDAHL AT THIRD, BUT THE THIRD BASEMAN MISSED THE TAG SETTING UP GRENZ’S GAME WINNING RBI, KNOCKING A LASER PAST THIRD.

THE CODY CUBS BEGIN THE 2020 SEASON 1-1 AFTER SPLITTING WITH BILLINGS.

UP NEXT: THE CUBS HOST SHERIDAN FRIDAY FOR A DOUBLE HEADER STARTING AT 5PM. ON SATURDAY THE CUBS HOST THE BILLINGS HALOS FOR A SINGLE GAME AT 12 NOON. ON SUNDAY CODY HOSTS BELGRADE FOR A TWIN BILL BEGINNING AT 12 NOON. CATCH ALL OF THE CODY CUBS 2020 SEASON ON KODI.
