HS Baseball: Rough Night for Texoma Teams

It was a rough night for most of Texoma's High School baseball teams, as three out of four local nines lost their playoff openers.

In Graham, the Holliday Eagles jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the top of the first inning against Paradise, but four Holliday errors led to a 9-5 loss.

After the Panthers took a 6-3 lead with two in the first and four in the third, Jacob Hardin cut in to that lead by tripling home Braden Boyd, who had singled, to make it 6-4.

Then Ryan Todd brought Hardin home with a fielder's choice to the first baseman, who made the play to the pitcher covering first, with Hardin sneaking in the back door to cut it to a one-run game.

But Paradise's Logan Bailey singled home Toi Glover in the bottom of the fourth to extend the lead to 7-5, and Paradise tacked on two more for the final margin.

Todd will likely get the start Saturday for the Eagles in Game 2 of the series, set for 1 PM, also at Steer Stadium. Game 3 would follow 30 minutes later, if necessary, followed by Game 2 of the series between Olney and Albany, set to start Friday at 4 PM.

Burkburnett Falls in Game One

The Burkburnett Bulldogs got a good start from Ryan Patty, who allowed 3 runs on 7 hits over seven innings of work, but the bats couldn't get going and they fell 3-2 to the "other" Bulldogs of Abilene Wylie Thursday night at Pratt Field in Mineral Wells.

Burkburnett had a chance to tie it in the bottom of the seventh, but a long fly ball was caught at the wall by the Wylie outfielder to end the game.

Game 2 of the best-of-3 series will be Saturday at 3 PM, back in Mineral Wells.

Iowa Park Falls, Too

The Iowa Park Hawks dropped Game 1 of their Bi-District series against Snyder Thursday night, falling 10-0 on the Tigers' home diamond.

The home-and-home series shifts to Iowa Park this weekend, with Game 2 Saturday at 3 PM. The Hawks will try to force a Game 3, which would follow 30 minutes later.

Seymour Picks Up Big Win

The lone Texoma baseball team to pick up a win Thursday night was the Seymour Panthers.

They used a big, 10-run second inning to knock off Memphis 14-0 in Game 1 of their Bi-District matchup in Altus (Okla.).

Game 2 will be back in Altus Friday night at 6 PM, and if a third game is needed, it will be played Saturday at 1 PM.
