Bobcats turn back Jeeps, 6-4
FRANKLIN FURNACE — There were a few things the Green Bobcats did and didn’t do.
Fortunately, one of the things they did was win.
Green didn’t hit well but did get pitching and defense as they beat the South Webster Jeeps 6-4 on Thursday.
Bryce Ponn tossed a complete game as he gave up six hits, struck out two a didn’t walk a batter.
“We didn’t hit that well, but we played well defensively. We had to grind out the win. Bryce Ponn only struck out two but he was very efficient and effective. He threw only 81 pitches,” said Green coach Dan McDavid.
The Bobcats (2-1) took a 2-0 lead in the first inning.
Eli Webb and Tayte Carver singled, Levi Singleton walked to load the bases and Mason Barber had a two-run single.
