On Friday afternoon against SGP, the Bearcats scored six runs in the first inning to take a 6-4 lead. The big hit in the frame was a three-run homer to left field by senior first baseman Asher Zeeb.
"He (SGP pitcher) threw me a fast ball," Zeeb said. "At first, I thought I had popped the ball up. But it just kept carrying."
Aledo tallied a run in the third, added four runs in the fourth and scored two in the fifth and final inning (game was called on time-limit rule). The fifth-inning runs were courtesy of a two-run double by junior outfielder Andrew Tort.
