Tim Jones continued his slugging ways on June 27th, collecting three hits, including a home run, to lead the Cherokee Braves to a 9-0 victory over the Spencer Tigers. The win gave the #1-ranked Braves their third straight Lakes Conference title. Cody Ege turned in another excellent performance on the mound for Coach Scott Koch's Braves, scattering six hits and striking out 11. Ege had plenty of support from his offense. Tyler Jones matched his brother's total with three hits, including a double, and Kyle Ruehle added two base knocks and Matt Koch drove in two.
The Braves now boast a sparkling 21-1 overall mark, including 13- 0 in conference play.
