Devine edges Hondo, before Owls rout Cats
Hondo split its two baseball games in the past week, falling in its third one-run decision of the season at Devine on April 1, by a 2-1 count, then rebounding with a huge seventh inning to rout Carrizo Springs, 11-3 last Friday, April 4.
The loss at Devine came on a night when Hondo pitcher Dalton Graff tossed a one-hitter, walking only two, while the Owl defense committed no errors.
Hondo, meanwhile, collected six hits off Devine pitching, but could record only one run, in the top of the fourth. Devine’s two runs scored in the bottom half of the inning.
Wesley Rogge and Hunter Eitze both had two hits for the Owls, with one each from Zach DeLeon and Brian Dominguez.
Last Friday, the Owls traveled to Carrizo Springswith hopes of avenging an earlier district loss to the Wildcats. Hondo took the lead with a pair of runs in the sixth inning, then exploded for seven in the top of the inning on the way to an 11-3 win.
AJ Garcia went six innings on the mound for Hondo, scattering three hits in the win.
The Owls got on the board with a single run in the top of the first, before CS took the lead in the third, 3-1. Hondo got a run back in the top of the fourth, then took a 4-3 lead in the sixth.
Hondo had a 10-hit attack in the win, led by two each from Garcia and Dominguez, who both had a triple. DeLeon also had two hits, including a double. Dominguez scored three runs and drove in three.
Rogge, Graff, Joseph Nehr and Andrew DeLeon all had one hit each.
Garcia struck out seven CS batters and walked four during his six innings. Kyle Decker pitched the final inning, retiring the Wildcats in order.
Tuesday, April 8, at Crystal City, the Owls beat the Javelinas for the second time this season, as Graff threw his second consecutive one-hitter, in an 11-0 rout at Tate Field.
The Owls (4-3 in district, 10-11 season) will be at home to take on Pearsall this Friday, April 11, in a 7 p.m. game at Bridges Field, and will go to Lytle for a contest on Tuesday, April 15, also at 7 p.m.
