Cedarcrest relied on its ace pitcher and a quick lead to down South Whidbey baseball 8-0 on Wednesday in Langley.

The Red Wolves’ senior pitcher, Adam Davenport, threw a complete game and allowed only two hits while racking up 11 strikeouts. He also brought in four runs.

“He was just dominant,” said Falcon head coach Tom Fallon. “It’s hard to prepare for a pitcher like that.”

“When you face a pitcher like that, you can’t make one mistake,” he added.

South Whidbey (0-1 Cascade Conference, 0-2 overall) committed six errors, leading to four unearned runs.

Cedarcrest (1-0 conference, 2-0 overall) took the lead in the first inning after South Whidbey sophomore Will Simms walked two Red Wolves. An error in the same inning led to three runs and a hole from which the Falcons could not fly out.

“What I care about is we’re not playing the way we normally play. Usually pitching and defense is our strength,” Fallon said.

South Whidbey has several underclassmen on its varsity roster, and Fallon noted that once the players adjust to the “speed of the game,” that the mistakes will become less frequent.
