Casady: Cyclones earn championship...
By Robert Przybylo
You’re only as strong as your next day’s starting pitcher has been a saying in baseball for years. Well, at the Southwest Prep Conference Championships, Casady never faced a pitcher like Heritage Hall’s Bob Kraft.
And the Cyclones had some pretty solid arms of their own as Casady outscored its three opponents 24-2 in earning the SPC Division II championship.
The Cyclones received phenomenal pitching performances in all three games as no pitcher gave up more than one run. Casady also played solid defense, only committing one error in the three games.
First game: Casady 3, St. Mary’s Hall (San Antonio) 1
The Cyclones received a dynamite outing from Matt Silver as he gave up one run on four hits in the toughest battle of the weekend. Not much offensively though Silver did have a triple in the win.
Second game: Casady 10, Dallas Greenhill 0
This time it was Mason Roberts’ time to shine, both on the mound and at the plate. He threw a six-inning shutout and also drove in two runs. Roberts had 9 Ks while Daniel Jeffreys added a home run for the Cyclones
Championship: Casady 11, Holland Hall 1
Pretty fun way to close out the career by run-ruling one of your biggest rivals, no? I’ve talked about them all year, but it was Cale Shivers and Ryan Shelley who led the charge. Shivers was stout on the mound while Shelley had two hits and two RBIs. Jeffreys had two hits and a run batted in.
Special thanks to Bart Shelley for the details.
