Bears' bats come alive; LC-M wins 14-2

LITTLE CYPRESS —  

Jace Robertson put an exclamation point on perhaps Little Cypress-Mauriceville’s best hitting game of the season when he cranked out a grand slam in the bottom of the sixth inning to finish off the Bears’ 14-2 triumph over the Livingston Lions Saturday afternoon at Don Gibbens Field.

More importantly, the Bears improved to 5-3 in District 20-4A play to start the second half of district play.

The Bears helped themselves out with a dramatic 2-1 win over Vidor Friday night, but on Saturday, they left little doubt as they put together 13 hits, including three home runs, to turn back the Lions (3-5 in 20-4A play).

Coby Roddy had a three-run home run in the fourth inning and Brennon Moore had a two-run blast in the fifth to spark the offense.

The Bears snagged a run in the bottom of the first when Dylan Gruber, who was 2-for-2, singled up the middle and scored off a Brandon Humphrey RBI single to right.

LC-M tacked on two more runs off Livingston starter Josh Snook in the second.

Robertson, who was 2-for-4, had a leadoff single to right and went to second off a sacrifice bunt by Moore. Ty Smith drew a walk and Roddy, who was 2-for-3, singled to right to load the bases. Shea Richards, who was 2-for-4, plated Robertson with a single to left and Gruber drew a bases-loaded walk to score Smith.

The Bears expanded their cushion to 7-0 in the fourth with a four-run frame.

Moore, who was 2-for-3, roped a slicing single to right. Smith reached on a bunt single and Roddy took a Snook offering over the leftfield fence for a three-run blast.

The Bears were not through. Gruber had a single to right and James Swan reached on a fielder’s choice and Gruber eventually scored on a double steal.
