On a night with so much at stake, the Cowboy varsity baseball team lost a tight battle to District foe Florida High 5 to 4 leaving the team in third place for the upcoming Region 4A District 2 tournament. It was a battle from the beginning as the Cowboys fell behind early 2 to 0 only to tie it up in the 4th inning. In the fifth, the Seminoles plated 3 more runs to go up 5 to 2, and again the Cowboys battled back with 2 of their own in the sixth inning making it 5 to 4. The Cowboys had their chance in the bottom of the seventh, but they just couldn’t plate the run needed to force extra innings. For the game, the Cowboys had just three free passes and four hits – two doubles and two singles. Zack Money was strapped with the loss pitching 4 2/3 innings.. striking out six and allowing three earned runs.
The Cowboys regular season is down to the four home games listed below before they head to the District tournament held at Florida High beginning April 23rd, so come on out and support your COWBOYS.
