Joaquin Rams Ballpark, Tuesday, March 27, 2018 –

A 5-4 hitting advantage, and a 1-10 error outing, helped the visiting Douglass Lady Indians hand the Joaquin Lady Rams their first District 22 2A loss this season, by a 6-2 score. The loss broke a 6-game winning streak for Joaquin and brought their season mark to 10-5. They are 7-1 in conference play and are atop the leader board.

Two hits and a throwing error, in the top of the first inning, gave Douglass an early 1-0 advantage.

Lead-off hitter, Ebbie McCann, got on base with an infield hit for Joaquin in the bottom of the first inning but was picked off. The Lady Rams only saw three batters reach base and headed to the second frame trailing 1-0.

An error and a double by Lady Indian C. Hogan helped Douglass gain a 2-0 advantage in the top of the second inning.

Joaquin pulled to within 1-2 in the bottom of the second frame when Molly Mason led off the inning with a single to leftfield and was later sent home after a bases loaded walk.

A lead-off walk, a double and an infield hit by Douglass allowed the Lady Indians to extend their lead to 5-1 in the third inning. Lady Rams’ pitcher Chloe Mason struck out three straight batters to end the frame and limit the damage.

The bottom half of the third inning saw only three Lady Rams reach the plate as they were set down 1-2-3 on two strike outs and a ground out.

Two errors in the top of the sixth inning helped the Lady Indians stay alive long enough to add a run and extend their lead to 6-1.

Annalyn DeChamplain drew a walk in the bottom of the seventh inning and scored on an infield hit by McCann, but this would prove to be the final score of the contest.

Defensively, Joaquins’ Chloe Mason struck out nine Lady Indian batters during the loss.

The Lady Rams will travel to Wells High School for a 4 p.m. game on Friday, March 30, 2018.

Shelbyville High School, March 23, 2018 –

The Shelbyville Dragons won a District 23 Class 2A Varsity baseball game over the visiting Tenaha Tigers, on Friday, by a 10-0 score. The game was called in the fifth inning due to the conferences’ 10-run mercy rule. The Dragons season record now stands at 6 wins and 1 loss, their district mark is 4-0. Tenaha is 1-4 in District 23 play and 1-4 on the season as well.

The Tigers saw only senior CJ Horn reach base in the top of the first inning after he was hit by a pitch. Shelbyville scored four runs in the bottom of the first inning on three errors and three walks.

Tiger Erik Smith reached base after being hit by a pitch at the beginning of the second inning but Zach Clark was able to strike out the remaining three batters faced in the inning.

The Dragons raised their score to 8-0 in the bottom of the second inning by pushing four runs across the plate with three hits, two walks, and a Tigers error.

Austin Williford led off the top of the third inning by drawing a walk for Tenaha. The Tigers had runners on second and third bases after Cody Foshee reached on an infield hit and he and Williford advanced on an error. The Tigers had the bases loaded later after T. Giles was hit by a pitch. The Dragons avoided giving up a score by getting two more strikeouts and an excellent play on a groundout by Dragons’ shortstop Cole Ferguson to retire the side.

Tenaha only allowed one baserunner in the bottom of the third frame and went into the fourth inning still trailing 8-0.

The Dragons were able to strike out all three of the Tigers batters they faced in the fourth and fifth innings while adding a run in the bottom half of both inning to gain the ten-run-rule ‘Mercy-Rule’ win.
