Where there is smoke, there is fire

The Foxes have the potential to do something special this season. Currently, the varsity Foxes baseball is atop the Battlefield District with a record of 3-0, 6-0.  Last week King George added two more district wins to their record in the form of shutouts against Eastern View and Culpeper. Thus far this season, the Foxes pitching staff has only given up five runs.

Where there is smoke, the Foxes have proven by their work ethic, that there certainly is fire within every aspect of their approach to the game. “It’s a joy to come to practice to see them work hard,” Fox varsity baseball head coach, Thad Reviello said. “They are extremely competitive in practice. They understand what we want them to do; there is no secret to this.”

On Tuesday, amid cool temperatures, the Foxes hosted Eastern View. Homeruns, solid defense, and outstanding pitching are the three attributes that can best sum up the Foxes’ fifth game of the season.

In the bottom of the first inning, Damion Carroll go the ball rolling for King George with a double over third base. Two batters, and an out later, Zak Kegley followed

with a base clearing homerun. The Foxes would later add another homerun in the bottom of third inning, courtesy of a solo shot by Matthew Hunt.

Although the Cyclones managed to put one runner aboard in the top of the fourth, Carroll (2-0), the Foxes starting pitcher, continued to execute his patented 90 mile an hour fastballs to perfection—striking out two batters in the inning. He later finished with 14 strikeouts, four walks, while giving up two hits.  

As for Cyclone senior pitcher Tanner May, life was about to get interesting. In the bottom of the fifth inning, with one out, Mike Hundley slammed a double into centerfield, scoring Matthew Hunt. Tanner managed to get out of the inning with a strikeout, but the Foxes had extended their lead to 5-0.

With less than two innings left, the possibility of a Cyclones rally began to diminish.  Although Ryan Powell came in to relieve May in the bottom of the sixth inning, the Cyclones’ Fox problems were far from over. With the bases loaded, Tyler Truslow added run number six to the Foxes lead with a sacrifice fly. Matthew Hunt followed with a bloop-single RBI that scored Carroll, giving the Foxes a 7-0 lead, and the game’s final score.

On Friday, the Foxes traveled to the unfriendly confines of Culpeper High School. Dustin Phillips got the win for the Foxes and Dylan Dombrowskas lit up the stat sheets with two RBI hits out of three plate appearances. He also added two runs scored. Zak Kegley went 2-4 with one run scored, while producing two RBIs. In addition, Kegley also plated a double.

Due to press deadlines, results of Tuesday’s home game against Culpeper were not available.
