Nathan Young allowed just four hits Friday against Center Point, but the Pirates pulled out the victory, 3-1.

 

 

Season, streak end for DíHanis

The DíHanis Cowboys were in it for the duration Friday afternoon. April 25, but were unable to overcome the three runs put up by Center Point in the top of the third inning.

The resulting loss dropped the Cowboys to 6-6 in the District 30-A race, and brings to a close what had to be one of the longest streaks in any sport in the state of Texas.

The Cowboys missed the baseball playoffs this season for the first time since 1982, ending a streak of 31 consecutive years -- and 53 of the last 54, dating back to 1960 -- in the postseason.

In the game with Center Point, both pitchers, DíHanisí Nathan Young and CPís Aaron Walters, tossed four-hitters.

But the Cowboys could manage only a single run in the bottom of the first inning. The Pirates countered with three in the top of the third for all of their scoring.

DíHanis continued to struggle in the field, committing five errors in the loss.

Center Point will receive a first-round bye in the playoffs, and will face the winner of a bi-district series between Port Aransas and Benavides.

District runner-up Charlotte will face Mason at bi-district, and third-place finisher Brackett will battle Ozona in the first round.
