Wildcats Baseball Team Plays Well in Wylie East Tournament But Final Game Is Disappointing

Smiley face

After a nice tournament run to get into the championship game at the Raider Classic in Wylie East, the Wildcats Baseball Team came close to winning but a late rally by Dallas Lake Highlands spoiled the day Saturday, March 7.

Jaxon Chaney drove home two runs in the bottom of the fifth to give the Wildcats a 3-1 lead. Lake Highlands scored three runs in the last two innings to win, 4-3.

After the game, Wildcats Coach Jerrod Hammack expressed disappointment. He said he expected more than five hits off of Lake Highland’s pitchers. He said too many Wildcats’ hitters were easy outs. The Wildcats hit into double plays in both the sixth and seventh innings. With the late lead, Coach Hammack said he was hopeful for a win especially with the solid pitching he was getting from Jace Evans.

He said the defense was playing pretty well until a sixth inning error. He also said there was a mental error when an outfielder threw to the wrong base allowing two Lake Highland’s runners to get into scoring position. Unfortunately, only one of them scored in that inning. Coach Hammack said the Wildcats just did not play well down the stretch.

Overall, the Wildcats went 3-1-1 in the tournament tying Frisco Liberty and defeating Dallas Lake Highlands, North Forney and Frisco Liberty before losing to Lake Highlands.

The Wildcats are now 7-3-1. They open district play Tuesday night at home against Royse City at Wildcat Park.
