The Port Aransas Marlins tossed a one-hitter at the Eagles and went on to a 10-0 victory. Hunter Tomlin took the loss on the mound for the Eagles and he collected the only hit for them at the plate.
The Eagles were limited to just three base runners for the six-inning contest
The Eagles hosted Woodsboro last Friday and the WHS boys blanked the Pettus squad, 7-0. A big first inning in which the WHS Eagles scored four runs paved the way for the win.
Ryan Beck absorbed the loss on the mound for the Pettus boys, striking out seven Woodsboro batters. Catcher Taylor Yeoman tossed out two base runners trying to steal second against him. Yeoman also had two hits in three trips. Beck went 1-2 and added one walk. Coby Gonzales had one hit in three trips as did Dylan Dunn. Dunn recorded one stolen base for the Eagles in the game.
On Tuesday night, the Eagles traveled to Falls City to challenge the Beavers. The home team had their bats all warmed up and struck for six runs in the first, seven runs in the second and finished with four runs in the third.
The Eagles put one run across in the top of the third and two more in the fifth to make it a 17-3 win for the Beavers in five innings.
Gonzales took the loss for the Eagles on the mound. Beck went 1-2 with a triple, an RBI and one run scored. Tomlin reached on an error and later scored as did Yeoman.
Gonzales was 1-2 at the plate with an RBI. James Constante also picked up one hit in two trips to the plate for the Eagles.
The losses drop the Eagles’ record to 7-12 overall and 1-4 in district play.
“We haven’t been playing well defensively or at the plate. We have to find a way to play with confidence and have some success like we had earlier in the season,” said head coach Anthony Ramirez.
The Eagles play today (Saturday) at 3 p.m. in Runge.
