Cary-Grove tops Woodstock

Cary-Grove played as if hits might come at a premium against Woodstock.

The Trojans hit-and-ran with two runners on a 1-2 pitch in the first inning. C-G coach Don Sutherland called a double steal in the third inning. Both instances led to runs.

“We were just trying to get something going because we haven’t hit as well as expected,” Sutherland said. “That’s the way baseball goes sometimes, so we were trying to force the issue a little bit.”

C-G didn’t have to push anything after the fifth inning. The Trojans busted open a tight game with five consecutive hits and rolled to a 12-2 victory over the Blue Streaks in their Fox Valley Conference crossover baseball game Tuesday.
