Baseball: St. Charles Catholic downs U-High, St. Martin’s edges Country Day
Area Prep Baseball Report for Thursday, April 8
In a battle of traditional powers, St. Charles Catholic scored an impressive 7-3 road win Wednesday at University High.
Brandon Kragle was the man of the day.
Kragle picked up the win and homered while driving in three runs at the plate for the Comets. Josh Tamplain was 2-for-4 with an RBI and Cade Pregeant had a double for St. Charles Catholic.
The Comets (12-9-1) open District 7-2A play Thursday at Fisher at 4 p.m. while the Cubs (12-10) host Ascension Christian Thursday at 6 p.m.
When you have just one hit, you typically do not win.
St. Martin’s Episcopal proved that thought process wrong Wednesday, edging rival Country Day 1-0 at Bonnabel Stadium in a district 8-1A showdown despite the Saints having just one hit.
The one hit was huge as Peyton Miller had a two-out, RBI single in the fourth inning and that proved to be the winner.
Christian Pevey (4-2) threw a complete game four-hitter, striking out seven to get the victory.
Dawson Simmons (2-3) pitched well but took the loss despite allowing just one hit.
Dylan Simmons was 2-for-2 with a double for the Cajuns.
St. Martin’s (9-14, 2-0) returns to action against Covenant Christian Thursday at 7 p.m. while Country Day (13-3, 1-1) will host Haynes Academy Saturday at 11 a.m. at Pontiff Playground.
