Kane County at Burlington


April 10th, 2004

Well I guess its that time a year again, were we all have to sit at ball games all bundled up like its December, just without the snow. Todays game was easily the coldest of the year, as the Cougars made a little easier to deal with by winning four to one. Thus sweeping the Bees in the three game opening series.

The Cougars won the game with thier run in the fifth, but the insurance in the ninth didnt hurt. Chris Dunwell started for the Cougars and pitched well. He went into the sixth inning, giving up only two hits and one run. The bullpen did a nice job again as Drew Friedberg, Manny Rodriguez, Jose Corchado and Jairo Garcia all pitched shutout ball. Freidberg gave up the only hit, and the only walk.

Luke Apper lead the way offensivley with two doubles to right. David Castillo got on base three times via the intentional pass.

Brian Ingram lead off the scoring in the first with a single to right. Appert put down a sacrifice bunt to move him along. Castillo walked. Eddie Kim grounded out to first, the runners moved along ont he play to second and third. Brian Snyder then walked, which loaded the bases. Dustin Majewski singled to left to score Ingram to put the Cougars ahead.

Chris Tritle led off the fifth with a double to center. Luis Perez then grounded out to second, on the play Tritle moved to third. Ingram would reach on an error by the first baseman Kila Kaaihue. A wild pitch would bring home Tritle.

The Bees would show some signs of life in the sixth. Dunwell walked Walter Seville and Jeff Barry back to back. Freidberg then came in and walked Chris Lubanski to load the bases. Angel Sanches then lined one off of Freidberg's glove that wouldv'e made centerfield easily. Seville scored on the play. Freidberg then settled down and struck out Mitch Maier and Kila Kaaihue before being lifted for Manny Rodriguez. Manny struck ut Brian Foster to end the inning.

After that Rodriguez would strike out two of the other three hitters he faced. Jose Corchado struck out two of the three he faced. Jairo Garcia closed it out striking out all three hitters he faced in the ninth. In all the Cougars struck out eleven Bees in the final five innings.

With one out in the seventh Ingram walked. Appert then doubled to right to get Ingram to third. Castillo lined out to short for the second out. Kim would ground out to second to end the threat.

Int he ninth the Cougars put up two insurance runs. Tritle and Perez were walked by reliever Kahi Kaanoi. Dusty Dossett then came in and got Ingram to foul pop to third. Appert doubled to right to score Tritle. Castillo was intentionally walked to load the bases. Kim would ground out to first for the second out, on the play Perez would score.
