March 24, 2017
Windsor — Windsor (1-0 Class 4A Tri-Valley League, 1-0 overall) got an early lead and never looked back in its 5-2 league win over Roosevelt (2-1, 3-2) on Thursday.
The Wizards picked up eight hits, paced by Zach Watts, who had three hits and a home run.
Roosevelt committed five errors, compared to just four hits.
"We came out a little timid and didn't play the type of baseball we've played in the first five games," said Rough Riders coach Jerod Cronquist. "The bad defense just wasn't characteristic of how we've been playing."
The Rough Riders were led in hitting by Bo Slaymaker, who recorded their only RBI.
