Indians Tame Jaguars For Third Straight Win
Stephens County returns to region baseball play this week on a three-game winning streak after beating Cedar Shoals in Athens on Friday night.
The Indians sent 17 men to the plate in a 12-run second inning on the way to a 14-0, five-inning win over the Jaguars.
Leading 1-0 after a Ridge Adams RBI single in the first inning, Eli Wenger hit a two-run homer in the second inning to start the offensive onslaught.
Then, a misplayed pop-up by Cedar Shoals with two outs kept the Stephens County inning alive and the Indians took advantage, breaking the game open on a bases-clearing triple by Adams and never looking back.
Every Indian starter scored at least one run and all 18 players who made the trip for Stephens County saw action and made at least one plate appearance.
On the mound, Jordan Page and Aaron Chappelear combined to one-hit the Jaguars, recording 12 strikeouts and only allowing four balls in play the whole game.
With the win, Stephens County moves to 11-8-1 overall, while Cedar Shoals drops to 0-15.
The Indians return home on Tuesday to face North Oconee in the first game of a three-game series.
First pitch on Tuesday is set for 5:55 p.m. with air time on WNEG and wnegradio.com set for 5:45 p.m.
