Chaparral came away with an opening-game victory in the Scottsdale Invitational Tournament on Wednesday night with a 6-5 win over Cactus Shadows on the road.
The Firebirds fell behind 3-0 in the second and it could have been worse, but starting pitcher Chandler Hutchens induced a nice double play groundball to third that Garrison Pregulman fielded and touched third before firing home to complete the twin-killing.
Chaparral’s bats finally came alive in the third as Griffin Hampton and Michael Purugganan led off the inning with singles. Two batters later, Joey Cammarata blasted a double off the centerfield wall scoring both runners.
The Falcons chased Hutchens in the 4th as they scored two more runs. Chaparral turned the ball over to Trevor Worth who finished the inning and gave the ‘Birds three solid innings of relief.
The Firebird offense came alive again in the 5th as Hampton hit a sharp grounder off of the 3rd baseman and Purrugganan and Will Fuenning followed with walks. Cammarata then hit his second 2-rbi double of the day to cut the Falcon lead to 5-4.
The Firebirds finally pushed ahead in the 6th inning with a 2-out rally that began with Hampton legging out a sharp grounder to short and was followed by singles by Purrugganan and Fuenning. Karsten Householder then drove in the go ahead run with a single to right field.
In the bottom of the 7th inning Cactus Shadows threatened to steal the win as they got 2 aboard off Firebird Closer Jake Theman. Theman then got a fly out and two straight full-count strikeouts to shut the door on the Falcons and procure the first win of the season.
The Firebirds also had some fine plays in the field as they turned three double plays on the night. Overall, not a bad first game. Lots of positives and a few things to work on as well.
