JCMS opened its baseball season at Cloudland in a big win on Monday. The Junior High Horns logged an impressive 19-1 win behind the spectacular pitching of Jayden Joiner and Bradley Livorsi.
Joiner allowed only one hit in three innings of work to pick up the win. He struck out six and walked one.
Livorsi fanned five batters in two innings of work. He never allowed a hit nor walk during his stint.
Joiner helped his cause by driving home a pair of runs with his double in the first.
Petie Pavusek added a two-run double in the fourth that broke the game open.
We played about as well as we could considering the circumstances, said head coach Julian Crews. We hit it pretty good and our pitching was excellent. It was a good way to kick off the season because our kids played well.
Joiner ended the day going 2-for-3 with three runs scored and four RBIs. Pavusek went 2-for-4 with two runs scored and four runs batted in. Weston Throop had a two-run double in the first inning. Ben Howard, Gavin Reece and Dylan Simcox collected one hit apiece and each drove in a run.
The Longhorns will play at Sulphur Springs on Friday.
