Cougars fall in tourney

PULASKI — Hidden Valley Titans scored a total of eight runs in the third and fourth innings and added two more in the fifth to rout the Pulaski County Cougars 10-0 Wednesday in the first semi-final game of the River Ridge District Tournament held at historic Calfee Park.
The Titans (18-3) were led by Mikey O’Brien (a Winthrop University signee) as he hit a grand slam home run and knocked in three more with two singles. O’Brien finished up with seven RBI, scored two runs and as the Titans’ starting pitcher he went all five innings striking out nine Cougars and giving up only two hits.
He may have sold popcorn at the concession stand between innings.
The Cougars’ only hits came from Gary O’Dell in the third inning and Jared King’s triple in the fourth. The only other runner for the Cougars was Ben Eads reaching on an error in the second. Eads was the losing pitcher as his record fell to 3-5 and the Cougars dropped to 12-9-1 on the season.
“They (Hidden Valley) hit, pitch and field extremely well,” said Head Coach Doug Dunavant. “O’Brien is a great player and he helps himself.
“We must refocus and play on Friday as a Regional playoff berth is on the line,” said Dunavant.
The Cougars will play Blacksburg Friday afternoon at 4 p.m. at Calfee Park with a regional playoff berth at stake. The Cougars beat the Bruins in Blacksburg and the Bruins returned the favor as they beat the Cougars at Calfee Park to split the regular season meetings. The loser of the 4 p.m. game will see their season end.
