DíHanis splits district
The DíHanis Cowboys split two district baseball games in the
past week, with a 17-6 home win over Medina on Monday, April 20,
and a 13-8 loss at Sabinal on Tuesday, April 21.
This week, the Cowboys are scheduled to host La Pryor on
Friday, April 24, and Charlotte on Tuesday, April 28. Both games
will start at 4:30. They were scheduled to play a makeup game with
Sabinal, postponed from earlier in the season, on Saturday. But
with the success of the DHS One-Act Play, a scheduling conflict
has arisen. The game will be made up sometime next week.
The Cowboys jumped on Medina quickly, scoring five runs in the
bottom of the first inning. The big blast was a bases-loaded
triple from Homer Rivera, followed by singles from Cristian
Salgado and Robert Rugh.
Up 5-1, the Cowboys added two more in the second without
benefit of a hit.
After the Bobcats tightened the margin to 8-6 heading to the
bottom of the fourth, the Cowboys put the game out of reach with a
nine-run inning. Salgado and Tyler Rodriguez both had two hits in
the inning, along with a triple from John Rodriguez.
The ten-run rule took effect when Medina failed to score in the
Adam Tapia pitched the complete game victory for DíHanis.
In the loss at Sabinal, the Jackets held a 9-3 lead, before DíHanis
rallied with five runs in the top of the sixth.
Sabinal had grabbed the lead in the bottom of the fifth scoring
eight runs. After the Cowboysí rally, the Yellowjackets answered
with another four-run rally for the 13-8 win.
