Baseball Goes 4-0

By Tyler Peterson
The Lenox Tiger baseball club had quite a week picking up four straight wins while outscoring their opponents by a combined margin 46-3! Perhaps even more impressive for the Tiger squad is they never played a full game taking down all four opponents in six innings or less.
On Tuesday at Mt. Ayr the Tigers got their winning ways going taking down the Raiders 12-2. Lenox scored 12 runs on eight hits, and committed just one error.
“Kitzman had some really great battles at the plate this past week.’ ‘When he hit that one out of the park, I believe, it boosted our success at the plate the rest of the week.” Stated Head Coach Trevor Luther.
On the bump Carter Reed faced his old school and was clutch. Reed threw four innings allowing just one earned run and striking out eight.
Senior Samson Adams came in relief, and the right-hander sat down six Raiders to finish things off.
Tuesday the Tigers picked up where they left off shutting out Murray 13-0. There were 13 runs on nine hits, and zero Tiger errors.
The Tigers returned home on Thursday against Pride of Iowa perennial power Southeast Warren. The guys were not the least bit sluggish and dominated 10-0 to take down the Warhawks for the first time in a decade!
There were ten runs on ten hits, and for the second straight game zero errors for our hometown Tigers. On the hill the freshman Laramie Stoaks threw an absolute gem. Stoaks shut-out the Warhawks, allowed just five hits, walked two, and sat down four on strikes.
“That was a tough spot to put a freshman in…’ ‘He proved he was ready.” Remarked Coach Luther on Stoaks’ performance last Thursday under the lights. Adams, Reed, and freshman Dawson Evans all had multiple hits in the contest. Adams had two singles, and two runs scored,
Finally the Tigers finished their stellar week by sitting down another conference opponent: Nodaway Valley.
The now 6-2 Tigers downed the Wolverines in six innings 11-1. Lenox had eleven runs on a season high 14 hits, and two errors. The senior ace Samson Adams got the win from the mound with eleven strike outs. Adams only yielded four hits and one walk to his opponents. As a team the Tigers made things very difficult for the Wolverines all night. Lenox had just one strike out as a team. Tiger Pride!
