The bats were on fire, with Pagel, Mitchell, Wambach, Wagner and Morrison all going 2 for 3. Final score after 5 innings, 9-1.

 

Game 2, the T Cats faced the Heat. Carter Morrison led the pitching crew only allowing three runs with seven strikeouts. Casey Wambach and Teddy Wagner both went 3 for 3 to lead the Cats to a 7-3 win in 4 innings.

 

Game 3 against Westchester was a pitchers' battle. On the mound was Tyler Frederick and Casey Wambach. The game went nine innings long with a final score of 2-1. The boys scored in the top of the ninth and held Westchester in the bottom to take the victory. Thundercats big hitters were Max Mitchell and Kaleb Pagel.

 

Unfortunately, game 4 turned out to be too much for the tired Cats. They faced the Warriors. The Warriors pitcher held the Tcats to only three runs. Final score 3-13 after four innings. Highlight was two doubles by Teddy Wagner!

 

Day three brought warmer weather and and some well rested Thundercats. Good thing they were rested. Game 5 the boys faced the Rock Island Jrs again. A pitchers' battle ensued. Seven innings later the young Tcats were tied 3-3. With Casey Wambach at the mound the Cats went three up three down. Bottom of the seventh Cooper Mlsna gets to first on an error. Jonathan Sampo fakes a bunt drawing clear confusion for the Jr Rocks. This allows Mlsna to steal second and third. Sampo closes the deal with a base hit up the middle allowing Mlsna to score. Thundercats win 4-3!
