Rams battle through nine
The Rams dropped a district game to Tupelo Christian Prep March 28, but the Vardaman boys took it through nine innings of fierce competition.
“It was a good game,” said Vardaman coach Boo Griffin. “We played really good early in and hit kind of a slump, but it seemed like we were getting it back for a while.”
The Eagles brought in their top pitcher, senior Israel Foster, and the Rams scored a run off him, showing Griffin his young team is growing up on the field.
“They never quit till the final out,” Griffin said. “We’ve got to keep that kind of momentum going.”
Dalton Huffman was the pitcher of record for the Rams. Chase Owens and Brandon Washington had two hits each and J.C. Hare had a hit and scored a run. Ty Long had a hit and walked on twice.
The Rams fell to Houlka in district play March 25 by a margin of 5-10 and lost to West Union, 4-14, in a round-robin tourney at Bruce Saturday.
“They hit the ball well and just came out early,” Griffin said of the West Union Eagles. “Somtimes you just have to tip your hat to the other team. They just played better.
Against West Union, Kemp Edmondson took the loss on the hill. Owens had two hits and three stolen bases and Allen Hendrix and Hunter Spencer had one hit each.
The Rams wrapped up their week with a close battle against the Trojans of Bruce, falling 7-8. The Rams went for the tying run only to be thrown out a the plate in the top of the seventh.
Long was the pitcher of record and recorded two hits while J.C. Hare led at the plate with a home run and three RBI.
