Maumee baseball coach Cam Coutcher says junior Steve Duby is the ace of his pitching staff.
"If you look at our four losses," Coutcher
said, "against St. Francis we walked six, hit one and made seven errors; against Lake we had seven walks, a couple hit-by-pitches and three errors in one inning; and in the Southview game we had eight walks, four hit-by-pitches and five errors."
What will help is that senior Billy Laranga should be cleared to pitch next week, Coutcher
said, which will add depth to the staff.
"It will help us tremendously because then I can move (junior) Allen Brown back into the role of the reliever," Coutcher
"If they are not going to pitch until the next Wednesday anyhow, I'm going to squeeze as much out of them as I can," Coutcher
"These kids' arms are in great shape.
We've had, in our offseason, a throwing program that is really top notch."
said it could have been considered good fortune for the Maumee
staff that a doubleheader scheduled with Start on Saturday was cancelled due to rain.
No make-up date has been announced yet.
"We were going to have to really scrape around for some pitching," Coutcher
Justin never throws like that," Coutcher
