The Midlothian Trojans baseball team started the season slowly, winning just two of the first six games, but in their most recent home game on April 9th, the Trojans may have found just the boost they needed. In a close 6 to 5 game, Midlo took down the Clover Hill Cavaliers to bring them within one game of .500. This kind of well earned victory is undoubtedly capable of igniting a baseball team and giving them the momentum they need to turn this season around. When asked about the team’s performance, senior Dylan Carson described the game as “an all around good team performance,” outlining the Trojans’ newfound confidence.

Right from the start, Midlo’s bats were swinging, piling on 4 runs in the bottom of the first. Baylor Cumbea made sure to leave his mark on the game, driving in two runs off a two RBI double belted into the left field corner. Clover Hill rallied in the top of the second, matching the Trojans’ intensity with four goals of their own. Although it wasn’t Camdton Furman‘s best night on the mound for the Trojans, the offense had their pitchers back, driving in another run in the fifth, and lastly, one more in the sixth. This offensive outburst, coupled with Cumbea coming on in relief in the 7th inning to slam the door in the Cavaliers’ face finalized a solid victory for the Trojans. As the midway point in the season lurks around the corner, this type of all around well-executed performance is exactly what every team in the county hopes to achieve, and something the Trojans take serious pride in.

The Trojans will look to carry this momentum deep into the season, beginning with a road trip to visit the Atlee Raiders on March 16th. After the game, starting third baseman Evan Heine said, “When everyone is swinging the bats well, it’s just contagious” in regard to the team’s offensive outburst, including a 2-4 night from Heine himself. Despite Midlo’s early season struggles, it is important to keep in mind that the baseball season is a marathon, not a sprint, and the Trojans are getting hot at just the right time.
