GLEN ROSE – Millsap pitchers had a hard time locating the strike zone Tuesday in Glen Rose. The Tigers, when given the opportunity, did not make it any easier to confidently throw another pitch over the plate, either, during their 14-4 run-rule victory over the Bulldogs.
The Millsap pitching staff issued six free passes – and hit four more Tiger batters – during the Glen Rose win. The JV White team, led by a 2-for-2 day with two walks by Camden Reynolds, collected 10 hits on the afternoon.
Jake Andersen also reached base four times – a single in the second, bunt single in the fourth, a walk and an error on the shortstop – and scored two runs. Andersen and Reynolds were joined in the two-run club by Chance Hatfield, while being a run short of Seth Love’s team-high three runs scored. Love reached on a single in the second inning, error in the third and walk in the fifth.
The Tigers sent 11 batters to the plate during their seven-run third inning.
Connor Hansen took the ball for the first three innings on the bump. The pitcher of record allowed two earned runs in the first inning, but then settled down to strikeout six of the next nine batters he faced.
He did not issue a walk, allowed three hits and was relieved by Reynolds in the fourth inning.
Reynolds sat down two of the three batters he faced in the fourth inning on strikeouts, and, after a little trouble with control in the fifth, ended the game with his fourth strikeout.
JV White will be back on the diamond Friday, April 1 in Rio Vista. First pitch is slated for 4:30p.m.
