Freshman pitcher C.J. Schrowe pitched a complete game one-hit gem Tuesday night as Ida Baker claimed a 1-0 victory over Cypress Lake by scoring the game-winning run with one out in the seventh inning.
With Cameron Farmer on second base after a one-out single and a stolen base, sophomore Gabe Villaverde drove a hard ground ball through the shortstop for an error. Farmer raced to the plate and beat the throw from center field to end the game.
"It was a big outing by C.J.," said Bulldogs coach Bob Van Devender. "We have three games in three days, so we needed an effort like that. He went above and beyond."
