On Tuesday, 6 p.m. in Kenedy at the Johnny “Bear” Arenas field, the minor boys’ Kenedy Team Black hosted the Falls City Little Beavers. The Little Beavers held the lead most of the game, but going into the bottom of the 4th inning, outscored by a margin of 8 -4, Kenedy Black rallied with all they could muster. The game seemed to be over with two out, but after scoring 3 runs and the bases still loaded, Jai Andric Skau lined a single over third base to tie the game at 8-8, and Jacob hit a long flyball to deep left pushing across an RBI walkoff winning run for Kenedy Black. Final score, 9-8.

In the night-cap game at 8pm, the major league boys’ Kenedy Maroon hosted the Runge Cardinals for another exciting contest between two very skilled and well coached teams. The score remained tied 6-6 from the 3rd to the 5th inning when a bases loaded walk gave Maroon the go-ahead run and the 10 pm rule halted play automatically. No play allowed after ten pm, no inning shall begin if the game will surpass the 10 pm deadline.

On Thursday, May 8th, the Karnes City Lady Badgers LL Jr girls played host not only to the Falls City Lady Beavers, but to a few delays as well. Game time was 6:30 p.m., and was played at the KCHS softball field, but Chief Umpire Jamie Brown suspended play due to lightning and light rain for about 20 minutes. The starting pitcher for KC, Terra Coronado, had control problems with the dampness but soon recovered. Falls City ace, Kelsey Moczygemba, wasn’t as lucky. With both teams’ base coaches assisting with game-ball towel drying, she walked batters back to back, even though she was pitched strong throughout the whole game.

The bottom of the 3rd inning actually hit bottom when Riley Allen injured her right knee attempting to slide into Home Plate. First Aid wasn’t helpful as she had to be rushed to the ER at OKMH for an exam, luckily revealing nothing broken, torn, or otherwise too serious an injury. We pray for her recovery.

The very next inning, a complete blackout occurred on the field lasting nearly 20 minutes, as the power grid had to be remotely reset. When play resumed, KC Lady Badgers went on to win it 22 - 7, in a romp that lasted

over 3 and a half hours, and completing only 5 innings.
