Published 4:47pm Monday, March 25, 2013

The Mabry Cubs visited Thursday, March 21 and took advantage of a bucket full of error’s to win 6-14 over the Landrum Middle School boys’ basketball team.

Trey Jackson and Jacob Murphy led the team scoring two runs each. Jackson, Murphy, A.J. Raber, Cole Steele, Dalton Kuykendall, Austin Farmer and Adam Burns had one hit each.

Raber and Corey Ashmore scored one run each. The Cardinals led 6-5 through the fourth inning. The wheels came off in the top of the sixth inning and the wagon fell apart as the Cubs thumped Landrum scoring almost as many runs in this game as they’ve allowed in their first six games.

The Cardinals scored four runs in the first, two in the second, two in the third and four in the fifth innings to go on to a 12-5 victory over the Wildcats in Jonesville Tuesday, March 19.

LMS’ pitching was solid once again as Trey Jackson pitched, throwing six strikeouts, allowing only two hits. Kuykendall came in pitching the final two innings, striking out three, allowing only two hits.

Jackson, Murphy and Raber led the team with three hits and scoring two runs each with Cole Steele also scoring two runs for the Cardinals. Alex Hawk and Kuykendall both had two hits. Steele, Noah Israel, Farmer and Ryan Johnson each had one hit.  The team celebrated the victory with a traditional trip to Krispy Kreme.

The Cardinals travel to Inman to take on Mabry again tonight, Tuesday, March 26 to try and redeem themselves.
