Walks and Errors Combine to Do In the Wildcats Baseball Team in an 8-1 Loss to Hallsville


A district baseball summit battle of the top two teams ended poorly for the Wildcats due to walks and errors in an 8-1 loss to Hallsville at Wildcat Park Thursday night (April 1).

Wildcats’ pitchers held the Bobcats to just 5 hits but 11 walks and 5 errors made the hits effective.

Meanwhile the Wildcats also struggled with the bats collecting only 4 hits and scoring only 1 run. Wildcats pitcher Hayden Hurst took the loss. He kept the Wildcats close but could only go 5 innings when his pitch count maxed out at 111. Hurst only allowed 2 hits and 3 runs while striking out 7 but he walked 9. Matthew Sherman went the final 2 innings allowing 3 hits and no earned runs. Faulty fielding and two more walks resulted in 5 unearned runs scoring.

Both Mayer Millsap and Matthew Singleton had 2 hits. Millsap also walked and scored the Wildcats lone run. Singleton hit a double. Hurst had the Wildcats’ RBI. Kaden Wallace and Colt Silman had walks.

The Wildcats slip to 4-2 in district play after the first half of the schedule. They are 7-12 for the season. The Wildcats open the second half of district play at Longview Tuesday night.
