Senior Ben Felix had 117 pitches through six innings, as the Cavs cruised to a 15-5 victory over Buckingham Charter on March 23.

Date: March 23

Opponent: Buckingham Charter Knights

Location: Away at Mather Field

Score: 15-5

Scorers: Freshman Nate Jakobs, senior Ben Felix, freshman Jack Christian, junior Daniel Hernried, junior Emil Erickson, senior Jacob Durante, freshman Blake Lincoln and junior Aidan Cunningham

Leading Hitters: Jakobs (5-5), Cunningham (3-4), Felix (2-5)

Pitcher: Felix threw 117 pitches for the entire game; he had 21 first-pitch strikes and 12 strikeouts.

Inside info: One of Mather’s fields is turf. Balls move quite a bit faster on turf than on grass, making it difficult for players who don’t have any experience on turf.

Inside info from Jakobs: “We were hitting the ball very well. (Felix) threw a good game. But we really played much better defense today, only making a few mistakes.”

Next game: A doubleheader against the Faith Christian Lions on Tuesday, April 12, at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. at Faith Christian High School
