HS Baseball: Windthorst Takes Bi-District Thriller in 7th

On Friday night the Eula Pirates had a sign in their dugout reading, "Make a name for yourself--beat Windthorst." For five and a half innings it looked like they would.

But the defending Class A State Champions still had some magic up their sleeves.

After trailing 4-1 in the third inning and 6-3 in the fifth, the Trojans scored two in the bottom of the fifth and single runs in the sixth and seventh for a 7-6 win in the one-game series.

A run-scoring groundout in the fifth by Jacob Johnson brought in pitcher Chase Schreiber to cut the deficit to 6-4, then Tyler Berardi beat out another infield grounder with a head-first dive, Pete Rose-style, in to first base, allowing Ty Duncan to score with two out and make it 6-5 going to the 6th.

After Schreiber posted a scoreless inning, with two strikeouts, in the top of the sixth, he helped the Trojans tie it in the bottom of the frame.

After a hit batsman with two out in the inning, Schreiber tripled to left-center field to tie the game at six, but was stranded there on a strikeout.

After another 1-2-3 top of the seventh, the Trojans loaded the bases with two out for Macaully Bowen, who singled over the leaping Eula shortstop Austin Bartlett to score Duncan with the game-winning run.

Windthorst will take on District 12-A champion Bosqueville in the Area Round next week.

Rider Takes Game 1 vs Dumas

The Rider Raiders had a little more trouble than many might have expected Friday night against District 3-4A's fourth seed, the Dumas Demons.

But Gage Green broke a 5-all tie in the sixth with a three-run home run, and the #10 Raiders escaped Game 1 with an 8-5 win in Lubbock.

Cameron Allen struck out 15 Demons to pick up the win.

Game 2 will be Saturday morning at 11 a.m., back at Lubbock's Cooper High School.

Class A Teams Earn Wins

A good night for Texoma high school baseball continued with two other wins for Class A schools.

The Seymour Panthers finished off their series in Altus, Okla. against Memphis with an 8-7 win that was much closer than their 14-0 victory in Game 1, but just as effective.

The Panthers advance to face District 6-A champion Follett in the Area Round.

Olney beat up on Albany in Game 1 of their series in Graham, taking a 12-2 victory.

Cord Barrientes picked up the win for the Cubs, who will look to sweep the series Saturday, back at Steer Stadium, at 5:30 p.m.
