The Boerne Champion Chargers baseball team continues its postseason playoff march later this week against a very good Medina Valley team. But ‘very good’ would be how the Chargers are playing now. 

They have won all four games they played in the playoffs, and have allowed zero runs while scoring 46 themselves. The Chargers pitching staff, though, has set the tone. 

Consider how impressive that is: Four straight playoff shutouts. "It’s baseball. It’s what we love to do," said senior pitcher Justin Schwirtlich. 

"They throw lots of strikes, and they’ve been down in the zone, and they’ve also commanded three pitches, and that’s the key to pitching," head coach Chuck Foster said. 

Champion catcher Nolan Huber added, "They’ve had very low pitch counts this season. They can pound the corners and bring that breaking ball when they need to. We’re sitting lots of guys down on strike three, lots of throwing down to third, which is a good thing." 

The Chargers swept Crockett to open the playoffs, and the brooms were out last week against El Paso Winn. Game of one of their best of three against Medina Valley starts Thursday evening at Somerset High School.
