The Cabot Centennial Bank White Junior American Legion team picked up a pair of solid wins last week against the North Little Rock Colts and a heavy-hitting Morrilton squad.
Cabot’s bats were on fire early on in a 13-5 win over North Little Rock. After taking a 2-1 lead in the first inning, Cabot all but put the game away with nine more runs in the second inning.
Lee Sullivan led off the inning with a walk, followed by a fly out to right. The next 10 batters reached base safely, with nine of those on clean hits.
Austin Null singled in Sullivan, then was followed by a walk to Dylan Bowers and a single by Jonathan Latture. Chris Odom hit a two-run triple, Gavin Tillery an RBI double and RBI singles from Tyler Tucker and Dalten Hurst. Sullivan and Brandon Jones kept the hit streak going with two more singles before the Colts finally got out of the inning.
Latture finished the game 2 for 3 with a run, Tillery 2 for 3 with two runs and a pair of RBIs, Hurst 2 for 3 with two RBIs and a run, Jones 2 for 3 with two RBIs and a run and Tyler Tucker 2 for 2 with a run and RBI. Odom was 1 for 2 with two RBIs.
Tillery picked up the win for Cabot, giving up two hits and two walks while striking out two in two innings.
Outside of too many walks, Latture was dominant on the mound in an 8-5 win at Morrilton. Latture gave up two hits, while walking five and fanning 10 over four and a third innings.
Cabot scored all they needed by the third inning with a run in the first and five more in the third.
That big third inning broke a 1-1 tie in the game. Bowers reached on an error with one out, followed by an RBI triple from Adam Hicks. Odom singled home Hicks just two pitches later. Tillery and Sullivan followed with a walk and reaching on an error. All three would score thanks to the error and a sacrifice fly Null. Odom walked and scored an insurance run in the fourth inning, while Drake Burroughs added the final run in the fifth.
Hicks led Cabot at the plate, going 2 for 4 with two RBIs and a run scored. Odom was 1 for 1 with an RBI and two runs. Sullivan and Null also each had RBIs in the win.
