Wildcats Baseball 3, Texas High 2

The Wildcats’ baseball team won a game they had to have to make the playoffs, winning 3-2 over Texas High on Senior Night at Wildcat Park Friday night.

Jaxon Chaney was masterful on the mound pitching a complete seven innings allowing two runs, both unearned, and three hits striking out two and walking two.

Wildcats senior Austin Dodd was practically a one man rally using his speed to score the go ahead run in the bottom of the fifth. Dodd got a one out single. Jase Thompson then put down a good bunt down the third base line. He was thrown out at first, but Dodd never stopped running, going around second and sliding into third. A throw across the diamond in an attempt to get Dodd out was a wild one, and Dodd picked himself up and came home to score.

Earlier in the fourth, both teams scored two runs. Texas High opened the fourth with a single and an error. Then, Tiger Chris Lyles tripled to score both runs as Texas High went up 2-0.

In the Wildcats fourth, Thompson led off with a double. Wills Sims singled, sending Thompson to third. A wild pitch moved Sims to second. Connor Burgin hit a sacrifice fly to score Thompson. Kaden Argenbright’s single scored Sims and the game was tied 2-2.

Then, came Dodd’s heroics in the fifth. Chaney then shut the door on the Tigers. The Wildcats outhit the Tigers 6 to 3. Both teams had two errors. Kamren Harrison and Pacen Edwards also had singles for the Wildcats.

The win gives the Wildcats a 7-8 district record and a playoff berth. They will be a four seed. The Wildcats won their last five district games to grab the playoff berth. Their season record improves to 15-10. Texas High ends district play at 10-5. The Wildcats will face District 16-5A Hallsville in bi-district with details to be determined.
