The nine inning game played Tuesday night wasn’t pretty defensively, but it was close. The Cowboys dropped their second district game of the season to the Taylor County Bulldogs 9 to 8 leaving their season record at 5 wins and 4 losses. The game started off nicely enough with the Cowboys jumping out to an early 4 to 0 lead in the second inning, but miscues in the field allowed the Bulldogs back into the game. The Cowboys were still leading 8 to 5 going into the bottom of the seventh; however, the Bulldogs rallied for 3 runs to knot the score at 8. After a scoreless inning by both teams, the Bulldogs pushed a run across in the bottom of the ninth for the win. Overall on the night, the Cowboys committed six errors which allowed for four unearned runs.
As a team, the Cowboys could only muster seven hits along with seven free passes. Jake Latner led the way with three hits and two RBI’s, and Heath Carroll came through with two hits. Aaron Brown added two RBI’s, and Adam Odiorne had two of the seven free passes. Zack Money pitched 5 1/3 innings allowing three earned runs and striking out eleven while walking only two. The Cowboys take the field next when they travel to Tallahassee Thursday, March 7th for a 7:30pm contest against the Florida High Seminoles.
