Cowboys win 3 to stay
near top of league chase
The DíHanis Cowboys turned in a 3-0 mark in the past week,
all in District 30-AA play.
On Thursday, March 19, in a game delayed because of last weekís
rain, DíHanis beat Falls City, 10-7. They followed that with a
demolition of San Antonio Hawkins, 30-0 on Monday, March 23, in
another delayed game. Then, back on schedule Tuesday afternoon,
March 24, DíHanis beat Medina, 14-6.
The victories lifted the Cowboys to 3-1 in district play.
In the win over FC, DíHanis got three runs in the first and
third innings, then added two each in the fourth and sixth.
The Cowboys had to rally, because the Beavers put up four runs
in the top of the first and added two more in the top of the
Tyler Rodriguez got the win for DíHanis, with late-inning
relief help from Homer Rivera.
Against a very outmanned Hawkins squad on Monday, the Cowboys
batted around two-and-a-half times in the first inning, building a
19-0 lead. The reserves came in to finish the game, adding three
runs in the second, five in the third and three in the fourth
before the run-rule finally kicked in.
Robert Rugh pitched the first inning, but handed the reins to
Orlando Felan for the rest of the game, starting in the second.
The pitchers combined for 10 strikeouts, as the Wolfpack managed
only two hits.
Tuesday at Medina, the Bobcats took an early 2-1 lead, but the
Cowboys went large in the second, scoring six runs. Then they
added two in each of the next three frames to put the game out of
reach, and giving themselves enough cushion to withstand a
four-run fifth inning by the Bobcats. Rivera went the distance on
the hill for DíHanis, picking up the win.
