PEHLAM — The Hewitt-Trussville baseball team extended its winning streak to seven games following Saturday’s double-header sweep of Sylacauga and host Pelham.
The Huskies now sit at 8-1 on the season and have now won 26 of their past 30 games dating back to March 2019.
Hewitt-Trussville opened the day with a offensive frenzy against one-win Sylacauga. The Huskies’ offense provided more than enough breathing room for pitcher Riley Quick. The sophomore pitched five innings, allowed four hits and struck out nine in the winning effort.
The offense was led sophomore Matt Miller’s grand slam and five runs batted in. Senior Tyler Mauldin added three hits with one double. Jackson Holland recorded two hits with two RBI.
Senior Kahlin Drake knocked in two runs on two hits. Michael Fowler recorded two RBI and Keith Lanum had two hits.
The Huskies capped off the day with a 1-0 victory over Pelham. Behind Holland’s 13 strikeouts in five innings of work, Hewitt-Trussville managed to overcome a sound Pelham pitching performance and score the winning run after a Fowler RBI. Mauldin added two hits with a double. Holland recorded a double at the plate to go along with his solid outing on the mound.
