Beavers get rare sweep of Broncs

It’s tough for any pitcher to enter a game with the bases loaded, no outs and his team already trailing 2-0.

It’s even tougher when the pitcher called upon to prevent further damage is a freshman.

Ronnie Weathers was able to limit Lakin to three runs in the top of the second inning and then settled in to pitch three scoreless frames as Scott Community High School rallied for an 11-5 win last Thursday.

The Beavers completed a rare sweep of the Broncs with a 15-0 rout in the second half of the double-header.

“That was a tough situation to put a freshman in, but he proved he’s another pitcher we can rely on,” says head coach David Dirks. “We’re starting to learn a little more about our arms and how much we can get out of our pitchers.”

It was a shaky start for the Beavers who fell behind 5-0 after 1-1/2 innings. What Dirks described as an “inconsistent strike zone” created some problems for starting pitcher Harrison King who got off to a good start with two quick outs before giving up two runs in the second inning.
