"Where EVERYONE Comes To Play"

WILDCATS FALL TO THE BAYCATS 2-12!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

With the Wildcats fielding a depleted side as a result of a number of our younger players away representing Victoria at the National Junior Championships, the remaining Wildcats were given the task of taking on the equal leaders of the second conference Geelong. The Baycats were close to full strength with Sam Gibbons starting for them and throwing a solid five innings and keeping the Wildcats in check.  The Wildcats had opportunities to put the pressure back on Geelong, but it was a day of things just not going our way.

Our standout hitters of the game were Mitch Hayes with two hits and Wade McConnon, JJ O’Connor, Ben Aslett, Tommy Maxfield and Daniel Page all picking up a hit each.

On the Pitching side of things Jon Kennedy made the start and was solid through four, only allowing a solitary run. Following Jon was Mitch Kennedy (1.2 innings) who was not as sharp as he needed to be and ultimately surrendered 6 earned runs with 8 runs given up. Matt Wilson (1 Innings) came in next and struggled too giving up another three runs.  he was then relieved by Matt Orwin (0.1 innings) who made his debut with a single pitch to get a fly out and end the inning.

The Wildcats did manage to claw back two runs off of Geelong’s closer Cameron Forbes with but it was not enough to stop the game with a Mercy rule.

A special mention to JJ O’Connor who took a pitch off the jaw while catching, hope it heals up quickly and you will be back on the field in no time.

The Wildcats will look to bounce back this weekend against Upwey on the 19th at Waverley at 3:30PM.

GO WILDCATS!
