BASEBALL: A visit from Mt. Pleasant on Monday for a pair of crossover matchups was cancelled because of weather.

At the Mt. Morris tourney last Saturday, the Cavs started out by downing their host 8-6. Posting the win was Cooper Betancourt after allowing eight hits in 5- 2/3 innings pitched and Chris Smith had the save. Noah Reed then stepped up to claim the complete game victory over Roscommon 8-4 by giving up one earned run on eight hits. Andrew Ramirez had three RBI.

In the title game Carman-Ainsworth fell 5-0 to Kearsley. Allowing one earned run in five innings on the mound was Ryan Macko.

In non-league action last Friday the Cavs were defeated at Grand Blanc 16-1 and 12-2 despite quality pitching performances from Alphonso Foster and Andrew Ramirez.

“The Bobcats were too much for us to handle. With an exhausted bullpen, we had very little to respond when they started to put crooked numbers up every inning,” said coach Steve Faculak. “Give Grand Blanc all the credit; they are a well-coached team with strong baseball players. We had our chances to respond, but they would make great plays each time they were tested.”

Powers got beat at Carman-Ainsworth on May 8 in both ends of a Saginaw Valley League-South twin bill 6-4 and 6-5. Austin Jerome earned the gameone decision by giving up eight hits in five innings pitched and Smith got the final six outs to get the save. The second contest featured Brennon Gleason allowing three runs on four hits in six innings to claim the victory and Smith got the final three outs for the save.

“Some pitch counts in late innings got both teams in trouble and they had to be stingy on defense to keep the game close.” said Faculak. “It came down to good pitching and tough at bats. The Cavaliers prevailed as they had 11 hits in the first game and 9 in the second.”

The Cavs are at Davison for a pair of conference games today. — M.S.
