Tyler Levy was calm and collective on the mound by throwing four innings, striking out six, and did not allow a single hit in the Nebraska City Post 8 Legion 13-0 victory over Tecumseh on Sunday, June 3, at Clemmy Holmes Field.
Nebraska City has won two straight games by a score of 23-2 and are playing relaxed without putting pressure on themselves. “We want them to stay positive and we want them to stay loose,” Coach James Widoe said. “This week is going to be tough as the competition ramps up a little bit.”
In back to back games, NC has not allowed any walks by it’s pitching staff. Tyler Levy showed a lot of poise on the mound today. “Thank God for no walks,” said Widoe.
Widoe went on to say that the team that plays the best catch, is the team that wins. Widoe said that the bar is high and he will continue to raise it as the team continues to improve.
Nebraska City scored four runs on three hits in the first inning after a three RBI double by Trent Fahey.
In the second and third inning, NC had the bases loaded twice. In the bottom half of the second inning, Jace Becker hit a single up the middle that scored two runs. In the third inning, Garrett Bassinger ripped a bases loaded single to score two more runs.
