Coyotes exit regional tourney after 4-1 loss to New Mexico

— Staff Report

The Weatherford College baseball team out-stroked the New Mexico Thunderbirds, nine hits to five, but could not translate safe passage on base to round trips, as the Coyotes fell to the West Conference team at Quik Trip Park in Grand Prairie on Monday, 4-1. The Coyotes suffered its second loss at the double-elimination format of the NJCAA Region V Tournament, and thus, end their season.

WC put run together in the waning weeks of the North Texas Junior College Athletic Conference schedule to qualify for the regional Tournament.

The Coyotes end their 2013 campaign with a 33-25 overall record and another region tourney trip.

Despite dropping the first game of the tourney on Saturday, the Coyotes, entering the regional as the No. 4 seed from the NTJCAC, put up an impressive defensive showing against Midland College, the top seed from the West.

Jacob Stone’s complete-game performance on the mound was certainly deserving of a better outcome than the 2-1 loss. Stone gave up just two hits and struck out eight. WC’s eight hits were just too scattered to produce more than its single run in the ball game.

The Coyotes bats did their damage late in the Sunday match with  Frank Phillips College, as they worked back into the winners bracket.

Scoring first in the contest, but down a run heading into the top of the eighth inning, consecutive singles by Weatherford High grads Collin Sefcik and Trooper Reynolds set the stage for Hunter Lockwood’s RBI double, with Erik Garcia sending Reynolds home for the WC lead with a single.

The Coyotes finished with three runs in the frame, adding another three scores in the ninth, high-lighted by Reynolds 2-RBI, base-clearing triple.

Reynolds finished the game with two hits, as many RBIs and scored a run. Lockwood had three hits, two RBIs and also scored a run in the Coyotes final win of the season.
