AHSAA Roundup: Hoover 13 Ramsay 6
March 16, 2020
Hoover Beats Ramsay
Hoover honored their seniors on Saturday, rolling out 10 2020 grads in their starting lineup on their way to a 13-6 victory over visiting 5A Ramsay High School. LHP Cody Crain got the start on the mound for the Bucs, tossing 6 strong innings to pick up the win. The senior allowed 6 runs (2ER) on just 5 hits and struck out 7. Ramsay countered with 2020 RHP Jaih Andrews. Andrews gutted out 5 2/3 tough innings, as the Bucs finally started to get to him the 4th time through the order.
Hoover started the scoring in the home half of the 2nd, when Robby Ashford (2020 #2, Oregon) led off the inning with an IF single, stole second, then scored on a triple from SS Lawrence Hammonds (2020 #76, Snead St.) Hammond would then score on a single from 2020 Ethan Pomeroy.
Ramsay would answer with 1 run in the top of the 3rd, then jumped in front in the top of the 4th with 3 runs. After a walk, error, and IF single, 2021 Kamren Ivory ripped a single up the middle to score 2 and put the Rams up 4-2. The lead was short lived though, as the Bucs answered with a 6 spot in the bottom of the 4th, capped off by a towering 2-run home run from 2020 C Davis Young.
Ramsay pulled back within 2 in the top of the 6th thanks to a 2 RBI double from 2021 Christian Thomas. Hoover blew the game open in the bottom of the 6th with 5 runs courtesy of doubles from Young, Ashford and Hammond, and a HR from Colson Lawrence (2020 #90, Wallace St).
2020 RHP Jonathon Skurtenis came on in the top of the 7th and fired a perfect inning, picking up 2 strikeouts.
