The Yotes have been busy this fall, playing games on a daily basis. This week was no different as we continued to play intersquad games as well as games against the Okanagan Athletics. As we get closer to the Fall World Series, some of the Yotes are trying to prove why they should not be slept on.
The pitchers continue to improve from the start of the fall and there are many guys that have pitched really well as of late. Freshman, Gavin Wuschke, pounded the strike zone with everything he had in 4 innings of work against the Athletics. He showed a great two seam fastball that was paired with a nasty curveball. Senior, Brett Reid, continues to show why he should be relied upon come seasons time. In his three innings of work he was able to strikeout five consecutive batters, showing off excellent control and movement on his pitches. Senior, Aiden Mordecai, also flashes quality stuff, with his electric fastball and devastating changeup. He was able to work 4 quality innings in the intersquad. Other notable performances include Quin Gorchinski, Justin Misfledt, and Jesse Poniewozik.
The hitters have done quite well this fall, even with limited swings. Freshman, Brendan Evans, has shown to be a quality piece in the lineup because of his ability to spray line drives all over the field. Senior, Jake Fischer, and Junior, Nolan King, showed off their power this week by launching homeruns just an inning apart. These two continue to be forces in the middle of the lineup. Freshman, Anthony Wyslobocki, continues to be a pest at the plate with his ability to have good at bats and drive the ball into the gaps consistently. Other notable performances from this week include Logan Campbell, Hayden Misfeldt and Kaden Dore.
The Fall World Series will take place over the next two weeks consisting of three teams. Team Black, Team Red and Team White all look to compete over the course of the next couple weeks in order to be crowned champion.
