Washington baseball coach Jeff Kulbeth said his team had a “really good outing” Monday as they defeated Commanche 15-0 in a key District game.
“We had a purpose and we swung the bats really well as a whole,” the coach confirmed. “We pitched it and played defense and ran the bases well. When you can put all those together you’re obviously going to be successful.”
The Warriors are looking to peak as they enter the post season in defense of their State title from a year ago.
Marlon Moore got the win and pitched the complete game.
He allowed only three hits and two walks while striking out four batters.
Offensively Moore helped out his own cause with three RBIs in a 2-3 effort at the plate, which included a homer. He also walked once and scored three runs.
Dax McCaskill homered as well and was 2-2 with four RBIs and scored two runs.
Cam Bates continued his solid play at the dish and was 2-3 with an RBI, as well as scoring a run.
Washington roughed up Lindsay 13-3 April 11 in another important District game to seal the sweep of the Leopards.
Bates was 2-3 with three ribbies.
McCaskill was 3-4 with two RBIs.
The Warrior bats have been hot throughout the lineup recently.
“We swing it well nine players deep and we can move runners,” Kulbeth said.
Tristin Babbitt and Jonathen Montoya teamed up on the mound for the win. Babbitt got the start and lasted four innings, striking out five batters.
“We have a lot of depth in the pitching staff,” Kulbeth said. “We’ve been able to keep our pitch counts low throughout the season and we hope it pays off and our pitchers aren’t worn out late in the season. We have an arsenal of 18-20 kids I can run out there.”
The Warriors are 21-4 this season as they ready their focus on post season ball.
“We’re trying to play well at the right time and have the right focus,” Kulbeth said. “Our guys are looking forward to the playoffs.”
