Wildcats Baseball Falls to Mount Pleasant 9-1 in District Opener


Baseball had a tough opener to their district season, falling to Mount Pleasant 9-1 on Tuesday, Mar. 15.

Sulphur Springs could not keep up with their rival as the Tigers scored two early three runs through four innings to pull ahead 3-0.

Coach Jerrod Hammack’s squad scored a run of their own in the bottom frame of the 5th but the visiting Tigers scored three runs each in the sixth and seventh innings to win over the Wildcats in blowout fashion 9-1.

Errors proved costly for Sulphur Springs Tuesday, as the Wildcats committed seven errors that translated to a few runs for the Tigers.

Sulphur Springs managed just two hits in the win from LF Brady Driver and 3B Griffin Crawford.

Matthew Sherman got the loss Tuesday, pitching 5 2/3 innings allowing eight hits and six runs, only two of which were earned. The pitcher walked three Tigers and struck out seven in the loss.

Tuesday’s loss drops baseball’s season record to 3-9 overall (0-1 district).

Next up, Coach Hammack and his team are back at home on Friday, Mar. 18 hosting Texas High.

That game tees off at Wildcat Park Friday at 7 P.M.
