The Cubs 10-run ruled Madison in their first game.

“We jumped on them early and were able to put some runs on the board in multiple innings,” coach Grenz said.

Two hit batters and doubles by Cody Phillips and Engdahl helped score three runs in the first inning. 

In the third, Tristan Blatt walked and Tyler Grenz hit his second home run on the year to make it 5-0. Two more walks and two errors scored two more. 

“It felt really good to get another home run in Jackson,” Tyler Grenz said. “At the plate I feel like I’m seeing the ball well and giving myself a chance to hit.”

Jared Grenz started the fourth inning with a double and scored on an error.

Singles by Ethan Johnston, Tyler Grenz, Devyn Engdahl and Jack Schroeder helped score four in the sixth.

“I felt like in the first game we did a good job of putting the ball in play and giving ourselves a chance to score,” Tyler Grenz said.

Idaho’s runs came in the fifth and sixth innings.

At the plate, Tyler Grenz went 2-3 and Engdahl 2-4.

Tyler Grenz pitched 6 innings and gave up two runs on five hits.

“Tyler did a good job going right at the Madison hitters,” coach Grenz said.

Cody 7, Jackson 2

The Cubs did a good job of putting up runs in almost every inning in its second game of the day against Jackson. 

“In the past Jackson has been good and we know we have to play our best against them to win,” Tyler Grenz said.

Cody Phillips hit a triple to start the game and scored on a sac fly by Johnston. Phillips scored again in the third on a wild pitch. He reached on a single.

After Jackson scored on in the third, a double by Schroeder and single by Moss brought in another run in the fourth.

Singles by Phillips, Johnson and Tyler Grenz, a sac fly by Blatt and double by Engdahl brought in three in the fifth. Jackson loaded the bases in the bottom of the inning but could only score one.

In the sixth another run scored on an error and single by Tyler Grenz.

“Offensively we were able to keep things rolling during the backside of the doubleheader,” coach Grenz said.

Cody finished with 13 hits. Cody Phillips and Tyler Grenz went 3-4, and Schroeder 2-4.

Grady McCarten started the game, going 4 innings and giving up one run on two hits. Jared Grenz pitched 3 innings and allowed one run on two hits.
