The Bowie Jackrabbits lost a close game at Holliday on a walk-off base hit on Wednesday.
The Eagles won 5-4 against the Jackrabbits in a game where Bowie came back strong late in the game.
The Jackrabbits were coming off a run-rule win against Vernon the previous week. Bowie was hoping this second game would go better than the first game, which Holliday won 16-2 by run-rule.
The Jackrabbits knew they could give the first place Eagles a better game and on Wednesday they gave it to them.
Holliday struck first in the first and second innings. An RBI single and a fielding error allowed two runs to score in the first inning. A two RBI double in the second inning put the Eagles up 4-0 heading into the third inning.
Bowie’s bats started a two-out rally to get its first run. Boston Farris hit a single up the middle. He stole second base and then Tucker Jones drove him in with a line drive single to center field.
The Jackrabbits still trailed 4-1, but some good offense had thrown Holliday’s momentum and Bowie’s defense focused up. After committing two errors in the first two innings, the Jackrabbits did not commit another one for the rest of the game.
After a scoreless fourth inning, Bowie bats did some damage again. Rayder Mann drew a leadoff walk. A sacrifice bunt and a stolen base moved him to third base where Jones came through with an RBI triple, making it 4-2. Jones later tried to score after a ball got away from the catcher. Unfortunately, they tagged him out at home plate to end inning.
In the sixth inning, Bowie started out well as Seth Mann and Troy Kesey drew back-to-back walks. After several wild pitches, Mann scored to cut the lead one run and Kesey was at third base.
Later with two outs, Cy Egenbacher struck out for out three, but the ball got away from the catcher. The throw to first base resulted in an error that allowed Egenbacher to be safe and Kesey to come in and score, tying the game up at 4-4.
Bowie could not keep its offensive momentum going as the seventh inning came and saw all three batters strike out.
Pitcher Edmon De Leon, who had rebounded beautifully after the rough start of the game as he struck out 12 batters in the game, was near his pitch count limit and had to be replaced on the mound.
Three different pitchers came in for Bowie in the bottom of the seventh. A walk, hit batter and intentional walk loaded the bases up with no outs as the Jackrabbit defense would need to pull a miracle to get out of this jam unscathed.
The miracle did not come. The next batter hit a single into center field to get the winning run home for Holliday.
The Eagles won 5-4.
