Blacksox 17U Falls Short of State Title Repeat

The Burkburnett Blacksox 17U team was within reach of repeating as state champions entering today, but they faced an uphill battle today, needing to beat the D-BAT Mustangs (Addison) twice to take home the trophy.

The Mustangs scored early and withheld a late rally to win it all in the first game 5-2.

D-BAT opened up the scoring in the top of the third when Gus Daniel dropped a bunt down the right-field line. Cole Wasmiller charged from first and threw home to Jonathan Denney, but the ball trickled away, allowing Alex Landers and Tate Sawyer to score.

One more run scored on a Griffin Russell wild pitch, while Daniel added a solo shot to left field in the top of the fifth.

The Blacksox broke through in the bottom of the fifth. Rider's Blake Brom stole second base, drawing a throw that ended up in center field. Burkburnett High's Bret Lewis scored easily.

Later in the bottom of the seventh, the Blacksox were down to their last out trailing 5-1. Blake Estep headed to the plate as the tying run. He grounded it hard down the right side, knocking in Evan Anderson. Ensuing batter Tony Reyes looked to keep the rally going, but he popped up to center field, ending the game and the season.
