Homeruns and Heartbreak for CowboysFeb 24th, 2012 | By Submitted | Category: Sports
On a cloudy night in Georgia, not even three home runs – two by Aaron Brown and one mammoth shot by DJ McKnight could power the Cowboys to victory against the Thomasville Bulldogs in the Valdosta Invitational tournament. Madison lost for the first time this season by a score of 8 – 7, but there was a lot a fight demonstrated. Trailing 6 to 3 in the seventh inning the Cowboys scored three runs to force extra innings. After each team scored a run in the ninth, the Bulldogs pushed a run across in the bottom of the tenth to hand the Cowboys their first defeat. As a team, the Cowboys racked up nine hits and nine free passes; however, they also had sixteen strikeouts and six errors in the loss. Aaron Brown had 3 RBI’s… Heath Carroll, Zack Money, DJ McKnight, and Aaron contributed 2 hits each, and for the third time this season Jarrod Burns was hit by pitch to reach base.
The Cowboys will also play a tournament game Saturday, February 25 at 4:00pm against the Houston County Bears.
