Cowboys go 2-1 for the week


     D’Hanis baseball stayed busy in the past week, with wins over La Pryor and Sabinal and an extra-inning loss at Stockdale.

    The game against LP had been scheduled for Tuesday, March 21, but was postponed a day because of rain. The Cowboys got the solid 14-2 road win over the Bulldogs.

    Friday, March 24, at home, D’Hanis earned a hard-fought 2-1 win over Sabinal, then, back on the road Tuesday, March 28, the Cowboys fell to Stockdale, 6-5, in nine innings.

    This weekend, D’Hanis will face Knippa for all of the marbles in District 30-A. Those are the only two teams in the loop, and they’ll play Friday , March 31,  at 4:30 p.m. in D’Hanis, followed by a noon contest on Saturday, April 1, in Knippa. If the teams have split the first two games, a third game will be played after the conclusion of game 2. The games will determine first and second places in the playoff seeding, even though the postseason won’t start for more than another month.

     The Cowboys will be back to their schedule against opponents from District 30-2A on Tuesday, April 4, when they visit Charlotte for a 6 p.m. game.  

     Now 9-3-1 on the year, the Cowboys broke open a 2-2 tie at La Pryor with an eight-run fourth inning, then added another four in the top of the fifth to set up the 10-run rule.

     In Friday’s defensive battle with Sabinal, the Cowboys scored single runs in the third and fifth innings, while surrendering only one to the Yellowjackets in the top of the seventh.

     Tuesday evening, Stockdale scored a run in the bottom of the ninth inning to secure the 6-5 win over the Cowboys. D’Hanis took the early lead with two runs in the top of the second, then extended the lead to 3-1 in the fourth. The Brahmas pulled back within one in the fourth, before the Cowboys seemingly added a pair of insurance runs in the sixth to take a 5-2 lead. Stockdale, however, scored three in the bottom of the inning to tie the game, which then went into extra innings.
