Blue Devils defeat Red Devils 11-1
April 29, 2014
FORT BENNING, Ga., (April 30, 2014) -- The Blue Devils knocked the Red Devils out of the park with an 11-1 win during Thursday's baseball game at the CYSS Youth Sports Complex.
Blue Devils pitcher Cameron Stewart struck out three batters during the first-half inning and continued to cripple the other team's chance of winning, along with Alejandro Villanueva.
"Obviously they couldn't hit anything that he had," Obie said about Stewart.
The Red Devils weren't able to replicate the Blue Devils' strong defense and frequently allowed walks. The Blue Devils' Stewart and Ashton Moses managed to score two runs in the first inning for the team.
Coach Lee Obie said despite not having the opportunity to practice as often as the team should have, they did pretty well. This was their second game playing and the second time they played the Red Devils. They also won that game.
Because of that, Obie said they know the other team's strengths and weaknesses.
"We gel pretty well coming into the first and second game," he said. "And since we are playing against the same team we already know their skill level. So I know what to do and what not to do with their team."
The Red Devils managed to score during the fifth inning, but by then the Blue Devils led 5-1. The Blue Devils offense ignited during the last inning by scoring six runs thanks to several stolen bases.
"What I want them to do is realize they don't swing at the first pitch," he said. "So the ball has to be where they have to protect the plate instead of swinging high or swinging at the ground for the ball."
