On April 28, the varsity boy’s baseball team played three games against the White Pine Bobcats and faced little trouble as they swept them.

In the first game, Bryan Noble started out the game on the mound and picked up the win, as he struck out eight batters and only gave up one hit. The Bucks won the game 10-0 due to an effective pitching performance by Noble. Lowry’s offense was paced by Okuma, Connors, Brumm, Studebaker, and Lecumberry in the first game, while Brumm also picked up four RBI.

“We played really well all three games, and did what we had to do to make the playoffs,” said coach Ron Espinola 

In the second game, Jace Billingsley got the start and earned the win as he struck out six batters and gave up four hits. As a team, the Bucks won in a blowout, 11-1. In this game, Hernandez led the bucks with a team-high of three hits and three RBI. Okuma also picked up three RBI in the game, with a respectable two hits.

“It was good to see other guys get time on the mound and hopefully that’s a good sign for the playoffs,” said coach Espinola.

In game three, Jesse Studebaker started out the game and also got the win, as Jalen Formby also pitched in the game. The Bucks shut out the Bobcats for the second time in the tripleheader, as they won 12-2. Billingsley and Studebaker paced the Bucks in the game with two hits apiece. Noble led the team in RBI with three.

The Bucks continue their season Friday, as they travel to Fallon in the first game of the playoffs.
