WHEELING — For a season opener, veteran Linsly head baseball coach Jay Cartwright will take it. It was a 13-two victory a lot more than going to Cameron on a cloud-covered Thursday afternoon on Holloway Field.
“Jack threw a seriously superb game for us. We’re going to will have to have him. He’s a sturdy pitcher,” Cartwright stated of his junior starting pitcher, Jack Selmon. “We’re going to rely on him a lot.”
Selmon, a difficult-throwing righty, struck out eight, walked just a single and gave up three hits — all of these in the initially inning. He threw 67 pitches, 44 for strikes.
Xavier Fankhouser fanned two in his inning of execute.
“Xavier threw appropriately in his inning,” Cartwright added. “We’ve got a lot of guys that can pitch, but we play a lot of baseball, so we’ll will have to have a lot of pitchers.”
The Dragons, which had four starters that have been playing in the W.Va. Class A state basketball tournament quarterfinals in Charleston just two days prior, definitely led 1- and have been knotted at two prior to the Cadets pushed across 11 runs in the residence half of the third.
“We got some base knocks but we produced some errors on the bases and in the field that are anticipated early in the season,” Cartwright added. “Most of the guys haven’t been outdoors a lot, but I was pleased with what I saw.”

“We hung in there for a couple of innings. Kason’s older brothers have been sort of getting on him about how superb Linsly frequently hits the ball and stuff, but I believed he did a superb job,” Cameron head coach Adam Angel III stated. “I really feel each and every of the runs he gave up have been due to errors.”
Cameron started freshman Kason Angel and he held his private against the Cadets in two innings. He trailed two-1 and was tagged with the loss, but drew praise from his head coach/father.
“He kept us off-balance there,” Cartwright stated of Angel. “But we had some probabilities. We left some guys on, but we haven’t observed a lot of reside pitching.”
three special Dragons worked the third inning.
“We came in with the mentality to see what our inexperienced pitchers could do for the explanation that we’re going to will have to have a lot of these guys in the course of the season. I told the guys you have got to make the routine plays and get the outs, specially against teams like Linsly,” Coach Angel stated. “I told them that errors are runs, so If we make ten errors, we give them ten runs.”
Cameron took a 1- lead in the significant of the initially when Adam Angel IV led off with a single, stole second and went to third on a wild pitch. He scored when Lance Hartley was jammed with a pitch but was sturdy sufficient to lift the ball into shallow appropriate-center.
