Titans show strength against Mariners
Submitted By Mike Heightchew
The John F. Kennedy Titans again showed why they are vying for clear leadership in the Mission Valley Athletic League (MVAL) when they faced a formidable Moreau Christian Mariner team on April 16th. Their offense is hitting on all cylinders as they came away with a 6-2 victory. In past years, the story was different as opportunities were allowed to slip away, but seven impressive hits in this game and an outstanding team average .391 at the plate have propelled the Titans to the top of the league.
Big hits at the right time have been a pattern this year and in the game with the Mariners, Titan offense took control right from the start. In the first inning, first baseman Sean Rood stepped up to the plate with the bases loaded and came through on the second pitch, firing a rocket that easily cleared the Center Field fence at 350 yards. Although stunned, the Mariners didnÕt give up as Dylan Mackin began the attack in the third inning resulting in two answering runs. Support from Aaron Havard and Lucas OÕRourke was a welcome sign from the Mariners, but the Titans would not be denied.
