Congratulations to the 14u Astros Orange for being named East Cobb Baseball team of the month! The Astros have started the Spring season off strong, bringing home the Championship at the Perfect Game Spring Season Opener. Congrats Astros!
Perfect Game Spring Season Opener Recap:
Meridian had two timely errors in the top of the fifth that would ultimately bring the contest closer. Carson Dougherty singled and knocked in a run that jump started the Astros. In the very next inning, the Astros rallied and scored three more runs which would ultimately put them ahead. Dimitri Angelakos and Grayson Baldovin both tallied a hit in the inning. The East Cobb Astros won 6-5 and sent a solid Meridian Panthers team home.
In the Championship game, Tyler Bradford got the start for the Astros and pitched a great game. He only gave up one run in his three-inning outing and that put them on a fast track to a win.
The Astros jumped out to an early three-run lead that was derived from some sloppy defensive play by 643 DP Cougars Hawkins. Jax Phillips and Camden Page both knocked in a run in the fifth and that would just about seal the deal for the Astros. Drew Sofield doubled late in the action as well that would be the final touches of a great weekend of baseball.
