Senior Jeremy Cogar had a solid week for the Tigers and came up big in a must situation. Elkins mounted a comeback against RCB. Down 9-5 in the 6th inning, the Tigers came to life at the plate. With the game tied at 9-9 and 2 runners on base, Jeremy stepped up and delivered a walk-off single to drive in the winning run from second base. The Tigers won the game 10-9. Solid defense and pitching sealed the deal for the Tigers. Jeremy also went the distance for the Tigers earning the win against Grafton 9-3 in the same week. Congrats to Jeremy and the entire Tiger Baseball team!!

The Tigers are off to a great start to the baseball season. One reason, the arm of Matt Gainer. Last years Pitcher of the Year in the Big 10 is back in his senior year. Last week against the Lincoln Cougars, the senior struck out 10 batters, pitching a 2 hitter in the Elkins win over Lincoln, 11-1 in 5 innings. They are winners of 7 straight and have a solid core of pitchers and veteran players. We want to congratulate Matt and the entire Tiger team and wish them good luck as the season continues!
