PORT LAVACA – The final was a 2-0 win for the home team, but Trojan hurler Cameron Kremers pitched a gem of a game in the loss.

“Cameron did a great job commanding the strike zone with his fastball and keeping the ball down, inducing several ground balls. We looked great behind him defensively, only committing the one error on a pick-off play,” said head coach Matt Trujillo.

Kremers blanked the Sandcrabs through five innings, but the home squad pushed two runs across the plate in the sixth frame after a base on balls and one base hit. The Trojans only had one error in the contest as the Sandcrabs capitalized on their only scoring threat of the night.

Kremers allowed the Sandcrabs just that one base knock while striking out five. He was plagued by four walks on the night.

The Trojan offense had just two hits in the game but were unable to string the hits together for a run-scoring rally. A.J. Gomez and Titus Puente recorded the hits. The Sandcrab pitcher struck out nine Trojans and issued just one walk in the win.

“We did a better job of putting the ball in play and getting guys on base, but we struggled to find that timely hit we needed,” Trujillo said.

On Tuesday night, the state-ranked Calallen Wildcats came to Beeville to play the Trojans. The Beeville boys will then wrap up their season with two road games. On Thursday night, the Trojans will be at Tuloso-Midway to meet the Warriors, and then on April 25, the Beeville boys will travel to Gregory-Portland to meet the Wildcats in the season finale.
