The Central Alabama Community College Trojans baseball team are on a tear after running through Wallace State-Selma during this past weekend’s homestand.
The Trojans (20-10) shellacked the Patriots in a double-header, winning 10-0 in game one and 3-0 in game two.
The wins improved CACC’s winning streak to eight games.
In game one, the Trojans were led at the plate by B.J. Martin, who had a big day offensively.
CACC’s third-baseman drove in four of the eight earned runs for the Trojans.
Martin scored runners via a single and a sacrifice fly.
Zach Rinehart had two RBIs, and Paul Young and Ben Hall each plated a runner.
Darius Reese went 3-for-4 at the plate.
He also was an effective catalyst for offense as he scored three runs on the day.
In addition to Reese, Hall also collected three hits at the plate and score three runs as well.
Ryan Raspino also crossed home plate thrice and was 1-for-2 with two walks drawn.
Along with his two RBIs, Rinehart was 2-for-4 at the plate.
Ethan Hunt earned the victory for the Trojans after dominating the Patriots’ batters.
In Hunt’s eight innings of work, he allowed no runs, gave up five hits and one walk.
Hunt fanned nine Wallace State batters during the contest.
Game two was a lower scoring affair but once again CACC’s pitching proved to be the difference.
Both teams collected five hits in the second game, but CACC was able to convert their hits into runs, while shutting out the Patriots.
CACC will travel to Wallace State-Selma today for a 4 p.m. matchup.
