EVART \u2014 Jared Pattee passed the test Monday in a strong pitching performance against Beal City. But the Evart junior is hoping to pace the Wildcats past their opponents in upcoming games in future pitching assignments Pattee, in the second game of a doubleheader, went until the fifth inning, allowing four runs to the Aggies who had scored 15 in the first game. Evart lost 15-0 and 4-2. It was his first varsity start. The fastball seemed to be working for him but he was mixing up his pitches effectively. \u201cI wanted to change the speed, when you change speeds it\u2019s hard to get used to same pitch,\u201d he said. The Wildcats are 2-0 as the season remains extremely young. \u201cWe feel pretty good,\u201d Pattee said, \u201cWe\u2019re definitely a younger team. We all love baseball.\u201d The Wildcats only scored two runs in Tuesday\u2019s doubleheader. \u201cHitting is always something we can work on, \u201cPattee said. \u201cWe\u2019re definitely a litle rusty by not being out. This is really about our fourth time outside.\u201d Being on the varsity, Pattee said being a smarter pitcherwill be a key. When he\u2019s not pitching, he\u2019ll play shortstop. \u201cI need to know what\u2019s going on and make a good play on the ball to have a chance to throw (the runner) out,\u201d he said.
