Baseball

Weatherford 3, Granbury 5

Weatherford 1, Trinity 2

WF Dayton Tockey

Dayton Tockey and the Kangaroos played hair-raising baseball this weekend.

The Kangaroos gave the folks entertainment on Friday and Saturday, competing in two tough battles. The squad came up short in both games and hopes to scramble back into the win column this week.

On Saturday, the Roos led Granbury after three innings but saw the lead slip away in the final two innings. Weatherford’s RBIs came from Preston Lunceford, Ryan Whisenhunt and Kaden Kerbow.

Friday’s loss to Trinity was a heartbreaker since the Roos were trying to even the series with the team they are currently in a battle with for the fourth playoff spot in District 3-6A.

The Roos might be happy to see who’s next on the schedule — last-place North Crowley, which hasn’t won a district game this year. 

Weatherford (17-10-1) plays at 7 p.m. Tuesday at home against North Crowley (7-13-1).

Brock 13, Bangs 3

BK Ian Fuchs

Ian Fuchs pitched in relief for the Eagles on Tuesday.

BK Camden Harris

Camden Harris tallied multiple hits for the Eagles on Friday.

Cash Jones banged home four runners on three hits as the Eagles won another district game to solidify their hold on District 8-3A. Jones’ bat wasn’t the only one powdering the horsehide. The Eagles nailed 17 hits on the day, with multiple whacks coming from Jones, Camden Harris, Gleaton Shaffer, Luke Stills and Sawyer Strosnider. Harris went four-for-four.

Peyton Shaffer picked up the win on the mound, and Dusty Baker and Ian Fuchs provided an inning of relief apiece.

Brock (14-8-1) plays at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Comanche (11-7).

Graford 17, Three Way 2

Graford (8-0) plays at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday at Bluff Dale (7-4).

Perrin-Whitt 9, Poolville 3

The Pirates have struggled this season but put two runs on the board on Friday night and kept adding to the tally as the game progressed. Landon Draper’s first-inning triple started things rolling for Perrin-Whitt. He would go two-for-four and score three runs and an RBI. Other Pirates bashing multiple hits included Michael Goodman, Wyatt Keeney and Evan Thompson.

Tyler Welch pitched for the win, and Poolville’s Kole Blaylock took the loss.

Poolville garnered four hits by Max Dickerson, Cooper Gammill, Gus Frizzel and Ty Smeal.
