Sophomore hurler Cameron Kremers took the loss on the mound for the Trojans despite pitching a very good game. Kremers went the full seven innings, allowed two earned runs and struck out 12 Wildcats. He walked two and gave up just five base hits to the Wildcats.
“Cameron Kremers pitched a wonderful game, but we just didn’t put the ball in play to help him get the win. We have to find ways to be more offensive,” said Trojan head coach Tom Carrera.
“We need to put the ball in play, especially when we have runners on base.”
G-P scored a run in the second and then two runs in the top of the sixth. The Beeville bats were quiet all night. G-P hurler Travis Geisee allowed just two hits on the evening and also struck out 12 in his seven innings of work.
Clay Blackwell and Daniel Amador got the two hits for the Trojans against the crafty G-P right-hander.
The Trojans are competing this weekend in the Goliad tournament before returning to district play on Tuesday at Victoria West. Next Thursday, the Trojans will travel to Corpus Christi to meet the John Paul II Centurions.
