The Westwood Middle School baseball team welcomed Middle Tennessee Christian to Fred Deadman Park on Monday.  Opening up their last week of the regular season, the Rockets took on the Cougars in a make-up game from March.  MTCS had too much firepower as they rolled to a 21 to 3 win.

MTCS jumped out to a 3 to 0 lead in the first inning and pushed that lead to 5 thru 3 innings.  In the 4th, the visiting Cougars blew the game open as they sent 22 batters to the plate scoring 14 runs.  Westwood finished the game with 6 hits led by Jayden Carter who had a double and a single, with one run scored.  Jonathan Nelson added a pair of singles and Blake Hillis had a single and a run scored.

The Rockets will end the regular season at home on Wednesday when they welcome Fayetteville to Looney Riddle Field.  First pitch is set for 5:30 PM at Fred Deadman Park.
