One day, two victories.
The CCJH baseball team swept Desert Winds in a sort-of doubleheader on Thursday. The first game was a continuation of an earlier contest that had to be stopped early due to darkness. That game left off in extra innings with the teams tied at 3-3, but continuation did not last long as the Cougars quickly scored to win 4-3.
Nick Mohn’s single drove in the winning run and Prescott Horn pitched two shutout innings for Cactus Canyon.
The Cougars made sure the second game wasn’t as close, scoring five runs in the first inning on their way to an 8-4 win.
Moises Rascon had three RBIs for CCJH, while Cody Uhl had two. Justin Anderson was the winning pitcher and Nick Mohn made a diving catch in center field to stop a bases-loaded threat in the final inning.
“We’re playing good baseball,” coach Carlos Acosta said. “CCJH baseball has really stepped up and is coming together as a team.”
