Most of the runs were unearned as early jitters put the Bobcats at a big disadvantage.
“Nerves hurt us in the first. We walked too many batters and made some mistakes in the field that cost us early and put us in a hole,” said head Bobcat coach Cody Fields.
“We settled down on the mound and in the field and made plays to limit the scoring after the first.”
The Brahmas got just one more run, in the top of the second, to claim the 11-0 lead. The S-T boys pushed across one run in the top of the fifth without the benefit of a hit for their lone run.
Sophomore Izac Garcia pitched four innings for the ’Cats, giving up just three earned runs while striking out two Stockdale batters.
The Bobcats did not pick up any base hits in the contest as the Brahma hurlers threw the shortened no-hitter.
“At the plate, we didn’t have a good approach. We watched too many strikes,” Fields said.
The Bobcats are playing in the Kenedy Lions tournament this weekend and will travel to Ingleside on Tuesday.
“We are young, especially on the mound, so we should get better game by game,” Fields said.
