Wednesday night I was assigned to cover the Maryville vs Farragut baseball game at Farragut High School. I was actually a little surprised at the outcome of the game. The last time these two teams met was on March 22 at Maryville. Farragut lost that game 4-1. I’m sure payback was a motivating factor on Wednesday night but I honestly expected the score to be a little closer than it was. Farragut won the game by shutting out the Maryville Rebels 8-0. I didn’t look at the stats book at the end of the game, but I counted at least 12 strikeouts by Farragut’s Phillip Pfiefer. The last game I covered that he was the starting pitcher, he recorded 15 strikeouts. It was also one of the first times I’ve seen a person bunt the ball and end up on third base at the end of the play.
