Pitcher Jacob Frost (12) pitches the baseball team to a win during the MICDS game on March 31.

The defense did not get much action against Mary Institute Country Day School on March 31, thanks to pitcher Jacob Frost (12).

Frost had the best game of his career when he defeated MICDS, 2-1, tallying a total of 16 strikeouts in seven innings. Frost struck out 12 out of the first 14 batters he faced, and took over the lead in the St. Louis area in strikeouts. He now has 51 strikeouts in just 26 innings.

“It felt great to throw well, especially coming off a tough start to the season,” said Frost. “Now I’m throwing consistently well using that pitching performance as a confidence booster.”

Frost contributed in more ways than just pitching, however. MICDS ended up tying the game at 1-1 during the top of the seventh, but Frost quickly responded with a walk-off double his next at bat, ending the game and sending the OHS bench into a frenzy.  

“The walk off double was an exciting way to end the game,” said Frost. “It was really exciting to see people run out towards me after the game ended.” 

Frost was named St. Louis Post-Dispatch player of the week after his performance against MICDS.

“Jacob has had an outstanding season for us,” said head coach Rich Sturm. “His fastball has been dominant. It was one of the more dominating pitching performances since I’ve been a head coach here. He’s provided great senior leadership, he’s a great teammate, and a great kid, he’s special out there for sure.”

 The Tigers have a current record of 5-5-1 and plan to face Parkway West at home on Thursday (April.15).
