The Cody Legion B team has won two of its last four games to improve to 4-16 overall.
Powell 7, Cody 2
The Pioneers had 11 hits in a victory over the Cubs on June 18.
Cody’s two runs came in the seventh thanks to an error, hit batter, walk and fielder’s choice by Trey Schroeder.
“The first Powell game was a close game until late,” coach Beau White said. “We made a couple of mistakes and they capitalized with hits in key situations.”
The Cubs had three hits. Connor Moss went 2-2 and Dominic Phillips 1-1.
Chance Moss started on the mound, going 5 innings and giving up five runs on seven hits. Connor Moss pitched 1 inning and allowed two runs on four hits.
Powell 13, Cody 2
The Pioneers pulled away early in the second game, scoring six runs in the first and seven in the second.
“The second game got away from us early, even though we scored a couple of runs in the first inning,” White said. “We were unable to string together hits in either game.”
Cody’s two runs came via a single by Will Thomasson and Connor Moss, an error and ground out by Devon Torczon.
Cody finished with four hits. Will Thomasson went 2-3, and Torczon and Phillips 1-2.
Trey Thomasson took the loss, giving up four runs on four walks and two errors through 1/3 of an inning. Torczon pitched 2/3 of an inning and allowed nine runs on five hits. Logan McLeod pitched 2 2/3 innings and gave up one hit. Ben Reinker threw 1/3 of an inning and allowed no hits.
Casper 8, Cody 5
The Cubs mounted a late comeback, but couldn’t overcome Casper in a game June 20.
Casper scored in all but one inning and led 8-1 heading into the seventh, where five walks and two hit batters helped the Cubs score four.
“The Casper game was a good game and we just could not pick up a key hit with runners in scoring position,” White said. “We ran good at bats, ran up pitch counts, and had several opportunities to score runs late in the game.”
Torczon finished 2-3, Chance Moss 1-2, and McLeod and Brady Deming 1-3.
Phillips took the loss, giving up five runs on five hits through 3 innings. Torczon went 1 1/3 innings and allowed one run on one hit. McLeod gave up two runs on two hits through 1 2/3 innings.
Cody 15, Douglas 3
Cody rebounded to get a win in the second game of the day.
In the first the Cubs scored five runs on four walks, an error and a double by Andrew Dunlap. They added seven more in the third. McLeod, Phillips and Dunlap hit singles during the inning. Cody also drew four walks.
A single by Trey Thomasson and an error brought in Cody’s final runs in the fourth.
Douglas’ three runs came in the third.
“We were finally able to come up with a big hit early in the Douglas game, which plated three runs,” White said. “Our patience at the plate helped us score early and often. Our defense was solid, and we had a good outing on the mound.”
Dunlap went 2-3, Phillips 1-1 and McLeod 1-2.
Brady Deming earned the win, giving up three runs on six hits through 5 innings.
Lovell 9, Cody 8
A late rally by the Cubs came up just short Monday against Lovell.
In the seventh inning, a walk, error and double by Torczon scored two to make it 9-8. The Cubs loaded the bases but didn’t get another run.
“We had chances to score runs in the first game but were unable to do so,” White said. “I was proud of the way the guys kept competing hard until the end. They were able to capitalize on getting players in scoring position in several innings, which proved to be the difference in the game.”
Cody’s first two runs came in the second on a fielder’s choice and double by Beaudrie.
In the fifth the Cubs would tie the game. Deming hit a triple and would score on a passed ball, while Phillips was hit by a pitch and scored on a single by McLeod. Two errors tied the game at 6.
A single by Deming scored one run in the sixth.
Lovell scored six in the second and three in the sixth.
Cody finished with 10 hits. McLeod went 3-3, Deming 2-3, and Nick Picchi and Chance Moss 1-2.
Grayson Beaudrie started the game and allowed six runs on two hits through 1 1/3 innings. Will Thomasson took the loss, giving up three runs on five hits through 4 2/3 innings. Torczon pitched the final inning and allowed no runs or hits.
Cody 16, Lovell 15
The Cubs won a high-scoring second game in extra innings.
“I was proud of our effort in the second game,” White said. “We were down the entire game, but came through with a big inning late to tie it, and eventually win the game in the eighth.”
Tied at 15, Beaudrie hit a single, stole second and advanced to third on an error. Cody loaded the bases and Torczon hit a bunt to bring in the winning run.
Lovell scored in every inning and led 15-8 heading into the bottom of the seventh.
Three walks and a single by Beaudrie brought in a run. It was followed by a costly error that cleared the bases and made it 15-12.
A balk by the pitcher and single by Connor Moss brought in two more for Cody and the tying run came in on a wild pitch.
Cody finished with 11 hits. Chance Moss went 2-3, McLeod and Will Thomasson 2-4 and Beaudrie 2-6.
“I thought the team improved at the plate in these two games,” White said. “We were able to put together several hits in more than one inning to score runs throughout the game.”
Chance Moss started the game and gave up eight runs on six hits through 3 innings. Phillips pitched 1 1/3 innings and allowed three runs on one hit. Connor Moss then came in and gave up three runs on one hit through 1 inning. McLeod pitched 1 2/3 innings and gave up one run on two hits. Reinker earned the win, giving up no runs on one hit.
