Despite scoring no runs in game one, there were a few bright spots in the hitting department for Cayuga in the game.
Jason Johnson led the way for the Wildcats by batting 2-for-2 with two singles and an intentional walk. Payton Wallace tried to get things going for the Wildcats late in the game when he hit a single and then immediately stole second base on the next few pitches. And finally, Connor Walsh was able to make it aboard on a fielder’s choice single.
Blackmon said he is going to need his team to step up in today’s game two, set for a 5 p.m. start in Arp.
“Jason is one of those kids who’s going to bring it every game,” Blackmon said. “He’s going to show up and throw strikes and hit the ball well. I know he’s going to show up in game two and help us out, but we need everyone to help us out, too.”
