Weekend baseball can be a good thing when it’s 80 degrees outside. It can be a great thing when you bring home a win such as Johnson County did on Saturday.
The Junior High Longhorns defeated Sullivan North 11-5 to earn their second win in as many days. It was a strong second and third inning that turned the tide in their favor.
“This is hands down the best game that we’ve played all season,” said head coach Julian Crews. “We were able to score runs and throw strikes. It’s not been an easy thing in some of our games. But we’re pleased to come over here and get a big win.”
The Longhorns used a base hit and two stolen bases by Jayden Joiner to dent the scoreboard in the first. They would come back to score four more in the second.
Ben Howard reached after getting hit by a pitch and moved to second on Troy Arnold’s single. Brad Livorsi’s RBI fielder’s choice added one run on the board. Joiner would single in another. Weston Throop collected an RBI by walking with the bases loaded.
The Longhorns would expand on their 5-0 advantage in the third.
Ben Howard, Dylan Simcox and Livorsi would all single and score on wild pitches. They would score a single run in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings.
