The Breckenridge Cowboys came up with two big wins Tuesday night against HOL conference opponent Frazee, winning by scores of 5-3 and 14-9. Trey Vogelbacher got the win for the Cowboys in game one, throwing all seven innings, allowing 1 ER on 5 hits and striking out 5 Frazee hitters. Gabe Armitage earned the start in game two for the Cowboys, picking up the win, throwing 5 innings and allowing only 2 earned runs.


"Trey was rock solid for us again in the first game," commented Breckenridge Head Coach Jack Hiedeman. "It was good to see him bounce back after last week and put us in a great position tonight."

After two quiet innings to start, the Cowboys scored runs in each frame the rest of the way, using small ball and timely hits to manufacture some runs. "We did a great job bunting tonight and putting some pressure on the defense," said Coach Hiedeman. "With guys in scoring position we did a great job of putting the barrel on the ball and driving some runners in."

The Cowboys were led offensively by Cooper Roberts who had 2 doubles and an RBI. Connor Ernst and Trey Vogelbacher each tripled and had an RBI of their own to put Breckenridge on top. 

In game two, the Breckenridge defense showed some cracks with multiple errors that allowed Frazee back in the game. Logan Church pitched two scoreless innings to close out the game.  ""All our pitchers did an awesome job today, they threw strikes and gave our defense a lot of routine plays," noted Hiedeman. "We just need to be a bit better defensively to back them up and have some easier innings."

The Cowboys were able to overcome a tough defensive performance with a lot of offense in game two. The Cowboys put up 13 hits, including multi-hit games by Jacob Nicholson, Paul Armitage, Connor Ernst, Riley Kappes, Jaxson Riggs, and Cooper Roberts. "The bottom of our order really did a great job tonight," acknowledged Coach Hiedeman. "They were on base all night and we moved a lot of guys over with bunts to put guys in scoring position for the top of the order."

The Cowboy were able to capitalize with 5 RBI from Ernst, 3 RBI for Roberts, and 2 RBI for lead-off hitter Gavin Hoffert. "These were two big wins for us to get back on track as we begin to close out the regular season," concluded Coach Hiedeman. 

The Cowboys improved to a 5-9 record after the Tuesday sweep. They have the rest of the week off but have 5 games next week to round out the regular season.
