KMS Wildcats win first home stand


The KMS Wildcats lost a 6-4 decision to Portsmouth MS last Thursday. KMS had a 4-2 lead heading into the bottom of the 6th, but Portsmouth rallied to score 3 runs with 2 outs to take the lead.

On Monday, the Wildcats played their first home game, with an 8 – 4 victory over Davisville.

Cory Burke, who hasn’t played a game since being diagnosed with cancer last year, ceremoniously started at second base for the home game before trotting off to the dugout to support his teammates.

Damien Mendoza went the distance on the mound to pick up the win, scattering four hits and striking out five batters on the day. Ryan Ramos belted a two-run homer, with Sean Gill adding  three RBIs. Jared Faria had two hits to lead the Wildcat offensive attack. The win improved the Wildcats record to 2-1 on the season. KMS will play next on the road at Riverside on Thursday, April 11.
