The Trojans scored two runs in the top of the seventh but it was one run short as the home-standing Gregory-Portland Wildcats held on for a 4-3 win on Tuesday night in the district opener for both varsity baseball nines.

The Wildcats put two runs up in the bottom of the third inning off Trojan starter Eric Soza. The game went into the top of the sixth, still a 2-0 ball game.

The Trojans scored one run in their half of the sixth to close the gap to one run at 2-1. G-P answered with a two-run outburst in the bottom of the sixth to extend their lead to 4-1 going into the final inning.

The Trojans rallied but two runs were a run short and the home team held on for a 4-3 victory.

Chris Parker continued his hot hitting for Beeville with three hits in four trips to the plate. Robby Horton blasted a home run.

Wildcat hurler Sterling Martin went the distance for the win and recorded 14 strikeouts on the night.

The Trojans are competing in the Goliad tournament this weekend.

Two games are scheduled during spring break. The Trojans will host a team from Barnsdall, Okla., on Thursday afternoon at 2 o’clock at Joe Hunter Field.

The Miller Bucs will be in Beeville on Friday to resume district play. The first pitch of the varsity contest is set for 7 p.m.
