Hawks Finish 1-0-1 In First-Day Action at the CL Tourney
Canyon Lake came back from a first-game tie with St. Paul II on Thursday, to a complete win, over Veterans Memorial in the nightcap, 5-2.
The Hawks used their base hits well in both games as this Hawk team is starting to claim a middle name called Clutch.
This second battle was complimented by a good stint on the mound from Cale Claycomb, who pitched a complete game gem in striking out 10 Patriots while pitching in (pardon the pun) with two doubles on this offensive side for this win.
The Lake jumped out to a quick two-run lead in the bottom of the opening inning when Mason Lee coaxed a one out walk that was followed by a single for Tyler Pauly.
Some sloppiness defensively for Veterans Memorial helped in scoring those runs as this damage was accomplished with just one single.
Claycomb got out of a jam to start the game in stranding a runner on third base after a double and no harm that was inflicted.
