Roos overcome rough start to beat Lamar, 4-3

Staff Report

Weatherford pitcher Beau Burrows had a rare, shaky start in his first inning on the mound Tuesday at Raymond E. Curtis Field, but after giving up three runs to Arlington Lamar, the sophomore settled in to put up a string of goose eggs on the Viking offense.

The Roos chipped away at the Lamar lead, scoring a pair of runs in the third and tying the contest at 3-all in the fifth. Andrew Healy completed the come-from-behind feat with a double in the sixth, driving in runner Alex Adair, who took to the base paths as a courtesy runner after Chris Pohl’s leadoff single.

The 4-3 win was secured when Burrows set the Vikes down in order. Burrows gave up just three hits after the first frame, striking out eight batters.

Eagles top Boyd in district tilt

Staff Report

Brock put up a single run in the opening frame  of a home match against Boyd on Monday, and followed up with crooked numbers in three of the next five innings en route to a 8-1 District 9-2A win over the Yellowjackets. 

Shay Phillips led Brock’s offensive attack, going 3-for-3 at the plate, scoring three times and kicking in an RBI. 

Brock starter Colby Fowler pitched five innings of 2-hit ball, yielding a single run while striking out 12 Boyd hitters. Tyler Nelson and Gaines performed clean-up duty, pitching an inning each.

Brock will play at Peaster on Thursday.


Millsap on short end of score-fest

Staff Report

Millsap put together a 7-hit, 9-run barrage in a non-district game at Graham, but were undermined by five errors and fell to the Steers, 11-9. Tied 8-8 after five frames, Graham added three runs in the bottom of the sixth, while the Bulldogs could only answer with one in their final at bat.
