Notes From The Park:
Junior LHP Nick Routt pitched for the first time this spring and pitched well, throwing 9 pitches, 7 for strikes, in his one inning of work. Although his velocity was about 4 to 5 miles per hour lower than his normal velocity, he threw with little effort in his delivery. He, basically, looked like the Routt of old throwing the ball. His velocity should continue to improve as he continues to throw.
Another lefty, sophomore C.C. Watson, had his best velocity of the spring, throwing consistently in the 87-88 miles per hour range, hitting 89 three times.
Junior righty Caleb Reed thew an outstanding inning, throwing just 6 pitches (4 for strikes) to get three ground ball outs.
Senior lefty Trey Johnson also had an outstanding inning of work, throwing 8 pitches (5 for strikes), getting a ground ball out and a double play to erase a base hit he gave up to Daryl Norris.
Junior lefty Tim Statz also threw a minimum of pitches in his three innings of work, throwing just 27, 15 for strikes. He threw 13, 7 and 7 in his 3 innings.
The Bulldog defense executed 5 double plays for the game.
And last but not least, the Bulldog hitters successfully executed 10 sacrifice bunts.
