The Caps varsity played No. 1 Green Hope on Tuesday 5/13/14 in the first round of the State Playoffs.  A shaky defensive start to the game by the Caps helped the Falcons to a 2-run lead.  Solid defense and pitching by the Falcons would make that lead hold up as the Caps lost 5 – 0.

The Caps’ offense threatened in the first, third and fourth innings but each time the Falcons’ defense responded.  The Caps mustered 4 hits and 2 walks for the game, while the Falcons’ defense turned 2 double-plays to help their cause.

Starting pitcher Sophomore Thomas Walden and relief pitcher Junior Noah Yarborough kept the Caps in striking distance.

Offensive leaders for the game: Dom Ford (1 – 3), Eric Collins (1 – 3, 2B), Jake Baize (1 – 2, BB), and Will Baldwin (1 – 1, SAC).

(Varsity Record: Overall 12 – 13; Conference 6 -8)

Seniors Rob Case and Eric Collins homered for the Caps varsity on Senior Night at Wiley Warren Field.  But their power display was not enough to overcome Heritage’s offense and 7 errors committed by the Caps’ defense.

Case homered in the 1st inning to stake the Caps to an early lead but the visitors scored 5 runs in the 3rd inning to seize the momentum.  Collins responded with his homer in the bottom half of the 3rd inning to briefly stall the Heritage momentum.
But the Caps’ pitching and defense could not hold off Heritage in the final game of the regular season.

Offensive leaders for the game: Dom Ford (2 – 2, 2BB, 2 RBI), Ben Sawyer (1 – 4, 2 RBI), Rob Case (1 – 2, HR, 2 RBI, run), Eric Collins (1 – 2, 2BB, HR, RBI, run), Ben Eller (1 – 3), Jake Baize (1 – 1, 2B, run), John Woods (2 – 2, 2B, RBI, run) and Noah Yarborough (1 – 1, run).

The Caps’ varsity visited Millbrook on Monday 5/5/14.  In a low scoring contest, the Wildcats were able to take a 3 – 0 win.

Caps’ starting pitcher Senior Jared Feeny and relief pitcher Junior Noah Yarborough combined to limit the Wildcats to 5 hits and 1 walk while striking out 3.  The Caps’ defense was a little shaky and was charged with 4 errors for the game.  The Wildcats would score all of their runs in the 3rd inning.

Three runs were enough for the Wildcats on this night as the Caps were limited to 4 hits and the Wildcats committed 2 errors.  “We were a little behind their pitching and just couldn’t get anything going offensively”, noted head coach Harry Jones.  “Jared and Noah kept us in the game.  Now that game is done and we need to focus all our energies on the next two.”

Offensive leaders for the game: Rob Case (2 – 3), Ben Eller (1 – 3) and John Baldwin (1 – 2).

The Caps’ varsity traveled to Wakefield High School on Friday 5/2/14 for a key Cap 8 contest.  Solid pitching and defense, coupled with some timely hitting, resulted in a 2 – 0 victory for the Caps.

Sophomore Thomas Walden pitched a complete game, limiting the Wolverines to 4 hits and 1 walk while striking out 3.  Walden was backed by an error free defensive effort; Senior first baseman Eric Collins had 5 putouts and Senior centerfielder John Baldwin added 4.

The Caps’ offense struck in the 5th inning.  Sophomore Jake Baize doubled and would score the game’s first run on a single by Junior John Woods.  The Caps added an insurance run in the 6th inning.  Senior Ben Sawyer lead off the inning with a single; Sophomore Cam Epperson advanced him with a single; and Sawyer scored on a single by Senior Ben Eller.

“Tonight was a complete team effort.  Thomas Walden gave us an outstanding effort on the mound and the defense was solid.  We got some timely hitting and good hustle on the bases.  The players demonstrated their growth over the course of the season to be able to finish a close game like this,” commented head coach Harry Jones.

Offensive leaders for the game: Ben Eller (2 – 3, RBI), Jake Baize (1 – 3, 2B, run) and John Woods (2 – 3, RBI).
