The Cowboy varsity baseball team traveled to Live Oak Tuesday for a contest against Melody Christian Academy at 5:00pm, and came away with a 2 to 1 victory. The Cowboys were held to a season low four hits, but they were timely enough to produce their 12th win of the season. The Cowboys season record now stands at 12 wins and 4 losses, with a district record of 4 wins and 2 losses. Taylor Howell picked up his fourth win of the season against no losses pitching 4 2/3 innings, and Heath Carroll got the final out of the game for his third save of the season. As a good friend of mine likes to say “it doesn’t matter how, JUST WIN BABY”.
On the night, Aaron Brown had 2 hits and Zack Money was 1 for 2 scoring once and driving in his 13th run of the season. Taylor Howell added a single and a run scored, and Heath Carroll drove in his 21st run of the season. That was it offensively… Probably saving their swings for this Thursday’s district contest. As a side note, the Cowboys lead the state in Division 4A with 134 runs scored and are 5th overall statewide.
ABSOLUTE FINAL REMINDER – The next home game is Thursday, March 22nd at 7:00pm against those folks from Taylor County, so rest up and come out and help the Cowboys whip them dogs.
