Kenedy Lion catcher Tristan Mejia did a great job of setting up the locations for the pitches in the Lions’ win over the Pettus Eagles 7-5.

In week four of district play the Kenedy Lions traveled to Pettus and Falls City. In the Pettus game Rhett Bell would take the mound and go 5 innings before giving way to Isaac Cruz who would pitch the last two innings. The Lions would score three in the first as Rolie Zepeda, Jake Havron, and Rhett Bell would all cross the plate. In the second Jon Asebedo would score to give the Lions a 4-0 lead. In the bottom of the second Pettus would score 4 to tie it as they advantage of a Lions error. The Lions would take the lead in the fourth as Bell would score again. The Lions would get another run in the fifth as JD De Los Santos would score to make it 6-4. The Eagles didn’t give up and were able to plate 1 run in the bottom of the fifth on another Lions misplay to make it 6-5. In the sixth Bell would score again to make it 7-5. This is where the game would finish and give the Lions a 5-2 record in district play.

On Friday the Lions played the Fall City Beavers and would jump to an early lead as Zepeda and Bell would both score in the first inning. Zepeda would take the mound for the Lions and get a 4-0 lead after two innings as De Los Santos and Roland Carrasco would both score in the second. Fall City would get on the score board in the third with one run to make it 4-1. Both teams would go scoreless in the fourth. Havron and Bell would score in the top of the fifth to make it 6-1. The Beavers would answer in the bottom of the inning with a three run home run to make it 6-4. Cruz would now be on the mound for the Lions and would get two more runs of support in the sixth as Zepeda and Bell would both score to make it 8-4. This is where the flood gates would open as the Beavers would score 13 runs as Cruz would give up 7 runs as it looked like everything he threw got hit in a gap in the outfield. Jason Medina would come in to relieve Cruz and it didn’t get any better as he gave up 6 runs to make it 17-8. With this loss the Lions are now 5-3 in district play. They have two games left to play as they host Runge on Monday night and finish with Woodsboro on Thursday.
