April 01, 2014 | 08:48 PMBURLINGTON — That was exactly the start Chiefs head coach Steve Bochat was looking for, he said.
The Big Foot Chiefs trounced the Burlington Catholic Central Hilltoppers 10-3 on Tuesday night in Burlington.
"We only gave up three hits," Bochat said. "Everything just kind of came together. We got three pitchers in tonight ... game one looked good. I'm happy. I can't complain."
The Chiefs scored two runs in the first inning, four in the second, three in the fifth and one in the seventh.
"We hit the ball well," Bochat said.
Catholic Central scored three runs off a double in the sixth with bases loaded.
"They're a good team," Bochat said. "They played good defense, we just hit the ball well."
Big Foot senior Austin Hoey started from the mound. Hoey pitched three innings and gave up one hit while recording five strikeouts.
Junior Alex Landers and senior Brian Wolski led the Chiefs from the plate with three hits apiece. Senior Nate Freytag had two hits and two RBIs. Junior Brett Morris also knocked in two runs.
Bochat said he couldn't sleep the night before the game.
"You don't know what you have until you get outside," he said. "I'm excited. I'm excited about Big Foot baseball."
