“We are still struggling at the plate. And, to compound things, we are also pressing on the defensive side, creating fielding mistakes,” said head coach Tom Carrera.
“Its tough to win when we are creating our own obstacles.”
Port Lavaca just kept pecking away at the Trojans. The Sandcrabs scored once in the first, and it was still 1-0 heading into the bottom of the third. A three-run third brought the scoreboard up to 4-0 in favor of the home team.
The Sandcrabs exploded for five runs in the fourth to almost close out the Trojans. Another run in the bottom of the fifth got the 10 runs needed for the game-shortened ruling.
Elijah Fuentes, Cameron Kremers and Daniel Amador hit safely for the Trojans.
Zach Cruz led the Sandcrabs with two hits in three trips, including a home run, to help knock in five of Calhoun’s runs. Sandcrab hurler Colton Kveton went the distance for the win and recorded five strikeouts and no runs.
Trojan Marcus Gomez gave up nine hits and eight runs in his two plus innings on the mound for Beeville. Clay Blackwell and Kremers also saw limited action on the hill for Beeville.
Calhoun scored its runs with the help of four Trojan errors.
“We just need to relax and get back to the team we were in the beginning of the season and not trying so hard (that) we are making big mistakes,” Carrera said.
The Trojans played host to state-ranked Calallen on Tuesday night. On Thursday evening, the Beeville hardball squad will play in Corpus Christi against Tuloso-Midway.
