Coyote baseball splits with Cisco Saturday, crucial series remains
After taking three out of four from Cisco College last week, the Weatherford College baseball team heads into a critical final series against McLennan, with a Region V Tournament berth on the line.
WC (29-22 overall, 14-14 in conference play) is tied with McLennan for the fourth and final playoff spot out of the North Texas Junior College Athletic Conference. If the Coyotes can get three wins in their last four games, they will ensure themselves a berth in the Region V Tournament in Lubbock next month.
In game one of Saturday’s doubleheader at Roger Williams Ballpark, WC jumped all over Cisco in a 10-0 win. Andrew Hendel pitched a shutout, striking out four and giving up five hits in six innings. Colton Turner racked up three RBIs on four hits. WC did most of its damage in a three-run second inning and a four-run sixth.
