Brock tags Pigeon Forge for three hits, three RBI in Mavs’ 10-2 stunner
Connor Martin led off pitching for the team, finishing with seven first-pitch strikes, two strikeouts, and a WHIP (walks plus hits per inning pitched) of 0.75.
At the plate, Jacob Brock led the team with three hits and three RBI, followed by Tanner Goins with two RBI. Aydin Bond finished with four quality-at-bats, with Luke Lowery adding three.
Mavericks Coach Cory Stooksbury said that the game went well, and was a good sign for the coming post-season.
“We put some pieces together and got some guys a lot of innings at the mound,” he said. “We got a sort of in-game bullpen for the tournament this weekend. We made routine plays, the pitchers threw well, and we swung it well.
“Pigeon Forge is awesome, so this is a big win for us. They’re something like 23-2 and their head coach was my head coach here when I played, so we have a good relationship. All around, just a good game.”
When asked who his standout player for the night was, Stooksbury didn’t hesitate.
“Brock. Jacob Brock had a great night,” he said. “Three hits and got hit by a pitch, then had a couple of RBI. Great. Tanner Goins hit another home run, too. Everybody was good.”
