The Glenbrook Apaches were in need of a big win over River Oaks to lift their spirits following a sweep at the hands of district rivals, Riverfield Academy.
Absent for that series was senior hurler Spencer White who took the mound for the Apaches on Tuesday and delivered in a big way.
White struck out eight Mustangs, allowed just four hits and gave up no earned runs in a 8-4 win to give Glenbrook the boost they were looking for.
“Spencer White came out on the mound and really sparked our team,” Glenbrook head coach Jonathan Hardy said. “He got us going out there.”
In addition to the pitching, Glenbrook also swung the bats well.
The Apaches racked up 10 hits against the Mustang staff, the second time this year they have feasted on River Oaks’ pitching.
Glenbrook’s Cameron Mathews had a big day at the plate, going 3-3 on the night.
White got in on the action at the dish as well, finishing his big night off by going 2-4 with a double, single and a pair of RBI.
Just a freshman, Nick Mourad has been huge for the Apaches this season. He finished the day 1-3 with 2 RBI.
Senior Caleb Wilson continued his strong season by collecting another RBI on a base hit. Colt Wilson added a single and an RBI of his own, as did Glenbrook’s Austin Harris.
Clay Simonton rounded out the Apache hitting frenzy with a base hit.
“I’m pleased with the way the guys bounced back after the Riverfield series,” Hardy said. “Hopefully this gives us some momentum going forward in district play, starting with our double-header against River Oaks on Friday.”
Glenbrook’s next two games will be in Monroe, Friday, March 27, with River Oaks.
Following those two district contests, the Apaches will host D’Arbonne Charter School Saturday for a double-header at Apache Field, with first pitch set for 11 a.m.
