The young Diggers ran into a buzz saw in the Lyons Lions on Thursday. The Lions threw one of the better pitchers and swung the bats well to jump to an early lead. The Diggers got plenty of defensive work and showed improvement in areas. Sawyer Kitting did a tremendous job behind the plate blocking several balls in textbook fashion and making two great throws down to 2nd base. Cooper Frey and Kiefer Zabel both swung the bat well hitting the ball hard. Cooper hit a ball to the fence for a long double. Kiefer had a sharp single and then scored the first run for the Diggers on an infield single by Seattle Schuessler.
The Diggers play KIPP on Saturday morning at 10 AM at CCHS.
