After back-to-back losses to San Manuel and Superior, the eighth-ranked Bearcats took out their frustrations by crushing their next two opponents. They defeated Duncan last Thursday, 13 – 2, before an 18 – 3 victory against Gilbert Classical Academy on Monday.

The ‘Cats pounded out 11 hits, including four doubles, in the win over Duncan. Destry Yocum was 2-for-4 with a double, a triple, and three RBI against the Wildkats. Dominic Bravo was 2-for-4, including a double, and had four RBI. Bravo also scored two runs and had two stolen bases. Seth Harmon and Douglas McPeak recorded the other two doubles for the ‘Cats.

Harmon, McPeak, and Robbin Newman combined to pitch six innings and limited Duncan to two runs on two hits. Harmon, who started the game, was the winning pitcher.

The Bearcats have six games remaining in the regular season and face two ranked teams in those games – Superior and San Manuel.

Upcoming schedule: Apr. 17 vs. Hayden and Apr. 22 @ Bowie. Both games begin at 4:00 p.m.
