Tuttle JV shows baseball depth in win

(Continued)

TUTTLE —

The game ended with a game of pitcher musical chairs, as Owen used three different relievers in the top of the seventh. Maverick Hiebert struck out two and saw the third out to end the game. Each pitching change came on the back of a walk.

"They know that if you're coming in for me, you're throwing strikes," Owen said about his decision to pull the relievers. "You're not walking people."

But starting pitcher Jake Thomas did draw the approval of Owen, as he struck out no less than five batters and held the Bombers to just one run.

"He battled early, struggled a little bit, and he got after it after that," Owen said. "It definitely helps."

Tuttle plays again at 9 a.m. Saturday, and a win will see them play their second game of the day that afternoon.
