Baseball team wins semi-final game at Regional 6/8/14

Bears win in semis 

Monroe Central right-han­der Jake Combs went the dis­tance on the mound in a 5-1 semifinal victory against Seton Catholic, limiting the Cardinals to a four hits.
 

Combs also scored a run and doubled for the Golden Bears, who avenged a 5-2 loss to Seton in the regular season. “They put a lot of pressure on us early on,” said first-year Se­ton coach Jake Carr. “Trying to get the top couple of hitters out was a little bit of a struggle. It’s baseball, some of those little flares get down, and then we didn’t execute a little bit. “Overall they played a good game and they were coming for us after we beat them earlier in the sea­son, but we played well.” Monroe Central also eliminated Seton from last year’s regional tournament.

The Golden Bears struck for two against Seton ace Brady Gray in the first inning. Two of Monroe Central’s first three hitters laid down bunts, and Beau Combs and Jake Combs scored on an er­ror and a sacrifice fly to center field, respec­tively.

“That’s huge for the pitcher to get a breath and realize he’s got a cushion,” said Monroe Central coach Blake Turner.

Both runs were un­earned.

Gray responded by striking out the side in the second inning.

“They (the Golden Bears) were really ag­gressive early on,” Carr said. “They were just aggressive early, the way it’s supposed to be played.”
