It was a 5-4 contest with the state-ranked Calallen Wildcats holding the slim lead heading into the sixth. The visitors put the game away with a huge exclamation point by scoring 16 runs in the frame to jump to a 21-4 victory by the 10-run rule.
The Wildcats struck first with a single run in the second inning. The Trojans tied it up in the third, 1-1. The visitors put two runs across the plate in each of the next two innings to grab a 5-1 advantage.
The Beeville boys rallied in the bottom of the fifth to score three runs to pull within one run at 5-4.
Then it got exciting, at least for the Calallen fans and players. The Wildcats went wild and scored 16 runs in the top of the sixth. That easily put the game away, and the Trojans could not retaliate in the home half of that frame to force another inning. The final was a drubbing by the third-ranked 4A team in the state.
The Trojans played right with the visitors up until that last inning. Clay Blackwell pitched the first five innings and kept the Trojans in the contest. Marcus Gomez, Jonathan Huser and Daniel Amador worked the tough sixth inning on the mound for the Trojans.
Blackwell helped himself with a good outing at the plate. He went 3-3 with one run and one RBI for the Trojans. Joe Rey Garza led off the game with a hit and he scored one run. Amador was 1-2 with two RBIs on a double. Titus Puente, Blackwell, Cameron Kremers and Garza scored the four runs.
The Trojans played the Tuloso-Midway Warriors on Thursday night in Corpus Christi.
