Tyler Morgan was the winning pitcher for the Rams. Twice the Cougars loaded the bases against Morgan, and he pitched out of trouble with minimal damage.
“He got ahead with his offspeed and put them away,” Holloway said. “So that was big. If he doesn't get out of those bases-loaded jams, they get two or three each one of those times it's a different ball game.”
Mt. Vernon improved to 16-5 this season. Breese Central dropped to 7-5. The Rams travel to Belleville for a conference matchup against Althoff today.
