CP Baseball vs Silliman Wildcats

By  | 
The Central Private Rebels won their third consecutive game of the young season by dismantling the Silliman Wildcats on Monday night by a score of 16-1.  The game was part of the Mizuno Classic played all week at Central Private and moved the Rebels record to 3-0.
Tyler Schultz picked up his first win of the season pitching the first three innings for CP.  He gave up only one unearned run while allowing 5 hits, walking one and striking out four Wildcats.
The Rebel bats were hot early as Central was able to push across 8 runs in the bottom of the first inning.  Gage Wilkinson and Logan opened the inning with back to back singles and Brennon Courville reached on a fielder’s choice before Ridge Perkins banged a double off of the centerfield wall.  Chase Metz and Taylor Ort would add base hits to round out the Rebels first trip around the batting order.  Wilkinson and Lewis then had back to back doubles before the Rebels were retired in the bottom of the first inning.
CP added 5 more runs in the second with Perkins and Ort picking up base hits.  Derek Willis put the Wildcats on the board in the top of the third inning that scored Tanner Knighton who reached safely on a base hit.  Schultz prevented further damaged by leaving Wildcat runners stranded at second and third.
Freshman Seth Stevens picked up his first of two RBI with a single up the middle that scored Perkins in the third.  Wilkinson pitched the third inning for the Rebels and struck out the side in order.  CP ended the game in the fourth inning with 4 straight singles by Thomas Bourgeois, Courville, Perkins, and Stephens.  The Rebels ended the game with 14 hits on the night while allowing only five.  Action continues in the Mizuno Classic with the Rebels facing Bowling Green on Tuesday
