Double Damage: Extra-Base Hits Key Tiger Win

Republic ripped four doubles in the fourth inning to take command at Cassville on the way to an 8-2 road win Tuesday. Jordan Carter picked up his first career varsity win, allowing two runs in four innings of work.

Cassville scored in the bottom of the first inning on an infield single and an RBI double. Republic tied the game in the top of the second when Jared Hughes doubled and scored on a single by Kyle Hill.

The Wildcats scored another run in the bottom of the third to take a 2-1 lead, but the Tigers took the lead for good in the top of the fourth. Nick Rose led off with a double off the fence in center field, then advanced to third base on a fly out and scored on a wild pickoff throw by the catcher.

Ryker Harrington and Kyle Hill hit back-to-back doubles, scoring Harrington–and Clayton Crowley doubled home Hill, giving Republic a 4-2 lead.

The Tigers scored two more runs in the fifth inning. Easton Prevo led off with a single and Tyler Cavener was hit by a pitch. Nick Rose tried to bunt the runners over, but a wild throw to first base allowed both baserunners to score, making the score 7-2.

The Tigers scored their final run in the sixth when Crowley scored on a groundout by Prevo.

Vincent Pyeatt pitched three shutout innings in relief, striking out one and walking one, and not allowing a hit. He also had two hits and two runs batted in.

Rose scored two runs for the Tigers, who improved to 2-4.

Republic returns to action at Ozark Wednesday.
