Night and Day is Difference in CLJV Baseball Games

Hawk JV Baseball team won their scrimmage game against Burnet Tuesday at the Hawk Diamond.

The Hawk's JV team improves their game in win over Burnet

This game started during the daylight which was the phrase used by Coach Brian Owens when comparing their game with Seguin last week.

“Night and day from last week,” Coach Owens commented when asked the difference in their last two contests. “We have been working on focusing in the game and talked about the mental side of the game.”

The Hawks won this 11 inning affair 10-8 as CL held Burnet to only one run in their last eight innings.

A slow start as the Hawks found themselves down 7-4 after three innings and then 8-4 after the sixth.

That would be the Bulldogs last run of this game as Headrick, Kissell, Volz, and McCleary closed the door on Burnet for the rest of this outing.

Ten strikeouts and four walks was a winning formula along with a much sharper defensive game as this contest matured.

“We had a good game but we started slow,” Jordan Weber started. “We made our way to the top and were more consistent and we had our plays down. We also communicated more as a team.”

Yes, this was just a scrimmage, but Canyon Lake’s JV team had a lot of good pitchers take the mound and sound defense and timely hitting.

Wait, that is what suppose to happen in baseball when you want to be successful.

Just two errors and cutting down on walks was a whole different team playing from last week’s game.

This team will be fun to watch this year, in fact, you will have another chance this Friday, when Canyon Lake plays Llano in a makeup game cancelled last week.

Come on out for the Day game and hopefully the Night game will have bright lights on for another win.
