MT. VERNON —
“That's a great time to get a sophomore in on the mound,” Holloway said. “Blake Jones got thrown in the mix (against Salem), but I thought he did a good job. And then Darick Hayes has some potential, and he did a good job of throwing strikes.”
The Rams used an aggressive approach on the bases against the Panthers' pitchers. Mt. Vernon finished with seven steals in eight attempts.
Eight of Mt. Vernon's nine starters got on base at least once in the game.
“We took advantage of some opportunities on the bases, had a lot of double steals, able to be aggressive once we got that lead and put some pressure on them,” Holloway said. “We also had some good bunts.”
Mt. Vernon is 1-1 this season and travels to Civic Memorial today.
