The Woodland Wildcats baseball team jumped out to an early lead Thursday night at home and defeated visiting Armuchee in a non-region matchup, 12-5 and improved to 4-1 on the season. Woodland put seven runs on the board in the first three innings, but Armuchee made it interesting with a five-run fourth to narrow the margin to 7-5.
The Wildcats added a run in the bottom of the fourth and four more in the sixth to secure the seven-run victory. Woodland took advantage of seven Armuchee errors and ten walks.
Trenton Harrison led the Wildcats at the plate with a 2-for-3 performance, as he drove in two runs with a pair of doubles and scored twice. Hunter Reaid, Toby Queen, and Cauy Williams had hits and two RBIs each. Garrett Pope threw four strong innings, allowing just one earned run and picked up the pitching victory.
Behind another power-hitting performance by Bailey Campbell and a combined four-hitter tossed by four Cass pitchers, the Colonels won a non-region game at Sequoyah Thursday night by a score of 6-2.
Campbell finished the night 3-for-4 with a home run and a double. It was his third home run in as many games.
Jake Collum drove in a pair of runs, while Zach Yancey and Cody Johnson had the only other base hits for the Colonels. Cass drew six walks as a team and also had two hit batsmen. Cass added insurance runs in the sixth on the Campbell solo shot and an RBI single by Collum. Evan Hinton threw four innings and allowed just one unearned run to pick up the win for Cass.
