Wildcats Baseball Coach Jerrod Hammack Notes That His Team is Depending on Pitching So Far

Wildcats Baseball Coach Jerrod Hammack said his team’s 3-1 win over North Lamar in their regular season opener at Wildcat Park Monday night (March 2) was not pretty. He said his team did not swing the bats well. The Wildcats were only credited with 2 hits. Coach Hammack said the Panthers’ pitcher threw hard but he added he was wild. Coach Hammack said the result was a lot of swings and misses and seven base of balls. The Wildcats loaded the bases three times. Coach Hammack said the Wildcats scratched out three runs despite not being able to get a big hit. Pitching again came to the rescue for the Wildcats this season. Monday Austin Crouse tossed a gem going the first five innings without allowing a run. Hayden Hurst came in for two innings to finish the game allowing only an unearned run. Coach Hammack said he thought the Panther runner who scored their run was initially out on a close play at first. He said Wildcats’ hitter need to learn to make adjustments at the plate. He said batters are typically behind pitchers early in any season and especially this one where the Wildcats have had a hard time getting on their field and three of four planned scrimmages were canceled. Coach Hammack said he has good pitching depth this year plus he also returns his district pitchers from last year. He said he has received good pitching performances this season from Jake Davis, Crouse and Hurst. Jaxon Chaney also tossed a shutout. Despite the lack of base hits, the Wildcats showed good discipline at the plate drawing those seven walks. The Wildcats play next in the Wylie East 2020 Raider Classic Thursday through Saturday. In pool play Thursday, the Wildcats will play Frisco Liberty and Dallas Lake Highlands. The tournament’s other pool is made up of Wylie East, Plano West and North Forney. Coach Hammack called all the teams playoff caliber.
