Link strikes out eight Republic batters…
Selkirk was clicking on all cylinders Tueday when they took on Republic for a road doubleheader securing a pair of double-digit wins 16-0 and 18-3.
Jay Link was nearly a one-man show in the first game when he struck out eight Republic batters and gave up just a lone double in the game to get the shutout while also driving in four runs from the plate. Not to be outdone, teammates Zech Curran and Luke Couch also drove in four runs each, with Couch getting things done on a pair of triples.
Ryan Zimmerman tried his best to outdo Link in the second game when he took to the mound. Zimmerman went six innings on the mound, striking out 13 Tigers (2-6) batters in the process to pick up the win. Rangers (10-3, 8-2) hitters destroyed Republic pitching with 13 hits that included a double and a triple from Link along with two RBIs and a homerun from Curran.
Selkirk will head out to Odessa for two April 27 starting at 2 p.m.
