#10 Chaparral 4 vs. Canyon View 7

In a highly anticipated baseball clash between #11 Chaparral and Canyon View, the Jaguars emerged victorious, propelled by a commanding performance on the mound by right-handed pitcher Landon Hood. Hood showcased his dominance over 6 and a third innings, allowing just one run until the 7th inning, where a notable turn of events unfolded.

Tennessee commit Chris Newstrom, representing Chaparral, delivered a dramatic 3-run homer, injecting late-game excitement. Hood's standout performance was distinguished by a true 3-pitch mix, featuring a particularly effective changeup that kept the Firebirds off balance.

At the plate, Canyon View's senior middle infielder, Bo DeWitt, emerged as a key offensive force, going 2-4 with an RBI and a crucial double in the middle innings. His brother, Luke DeWitt, also made a significant impact, going 2-3 on the day with an RBI. The DeWitt brothers proved to be strong hitters for the Canyon View offense, contributing to the team's offensive prowess.

The Jaguars capitalized on eight walks allowed by the Firebirds' pitching staff, turning free bases into scoring opportunities. Despite the Firebirds' late-game surge with Newstrom's powerful homer, the Jaguars maintained their lead, securing a 7-4 victory in a matchup that showcased both pitching prowess and late-game offensive fireworks.
