Offensive woes continue for city teams
Westmoore's bus arrived slightly late for Monday's game at Eisenhower, but the Jaguars did little else wrong the rest of the day.
Westmoore posted a 12-0 run-rule over Ike and maintained a tie for first place in District 6A-2, scoring seven runs in the first two innings while pitcher Kyle Tyler threw a one-hitter, striking out 12 of the 15 batters he faced.
Ike leadoff man Jordan Lattanzi slithered a base hit down the right-field line in the Eagles' first at-bat, but Tyler fanned eight straight and found an uncanny rhythm. Two groundouts were the only threats Ike posed the rest of the of game as the final 14 Eagles went down in order.
"(Tyler) had a little velocity we hadn't seen before and we didn't make any adjustments," Ike coach Brian Wyatt said. "We still kept going out there trying to do what we'd been doing and it didn't work. He came in throwing strikes and we helped him out a little bit chasing some pitches out of the zone. It wasn't our day at the plate, that's for sure."
Ike (1-12, 0-7) hadn't seen a pitcher with such a blend of control and speed until Monday, Wyatt said.
