Central pitchers strike out 16-Win 8th straight.

Grant Townsend wins his first two.

It's almost not fair.

The only Central pitcher who didn't strike out at least two Coyotes per inning was the starting pitcher Grant Townsend, but he still struck out eight.

The Vaqueros pitching staff struck out 16 Chandler-Gilbert batters and won many different ways this time for their eighth straight victory, a 10-4 win. Townsend took a few batters in the first to get command, got out of a first inning jam and went his five innings to pick up his second straight win. 

It's a blur. Townsend sits down eight.

Andrew Edwards, Brent Gibbs, Ben Skuro, and Kyle Atkinson all pitched one inning each striking out two of his three in his inning. All around the plate, swings and misses all night. 

Central scored ten runs in almost any way imaginable except one. Another night without long ball. It was four doubles, bunt singles, hustling out infield hits, stealing bags, grabbing extra bases, this is one quick baseball team. And one hustling baseball team to boot.

"Good to see Pikai breakout" said Head Coach Anthony Gilich.

Pikai Winchester went 4-6 with four ribs including two doubles, and this is a night where you jump in that shower after the game and start singing. Winchester can also run. Makoa Rosario came back into the lineup with a swollen-hand-less-swollen and went 3-5 stealing two bases and scoring twice. Caleb Henderson and Mitchell Robinson had two hits a piece (Earl beat out an infield chopper-not even close), and each scored twice. Overall, the Vaqueros thumped and scratched for ten runs, and that can be pretty tiresome for the opposing team, it wears on you.

A happy team is a winning team. It's also intimidating to the other bench.

"Excuse me sir, you'll have to leave the field for liability reasons" said Blue to Blade. 

"Whatever" said Blade. That's all I could think of at the time. 

Let's play four! Eastern Utah comes in for four games this weekend at The Big House.
