Bowie baseball loses to Iowa Park

Published

on

It was a game to forget for the Bowie Jackrabbits baseball team on Wednesday against Iowa Park.
The Hawks won 13-1 in six innings to win by run-rule against the Jackrabbits.
Bowie was coming off a competitive, but losing effort against Jacksboro, but knew Iowa Park would be just as tough or better with the Hawks sitting in second place in the district standings.
The Jackrabbits had lost the first game at Iowa Park in 7-3, with most of the action happening in the later innings, so they knew they could play with the Hawks. Unfortunately, Bowie did not show it on Wednesday.
Iowa Park scored three runs in the opening inning to grab a lead it would never let go. It forced the Jackrabbits to change pitchers to get out of the inning after giving up two doubles, a single, two walks and a hit batter.
Down 3-0, Bowie showed some fight in the same inning. Rayder Mann took advantage of a dropped third strike to get on base with one out. Troy Kesey hit a double and Seth Mann drew a walk to load the bases up.
After a strikeout, Hayden Rodriguez was then hit by a pitch, which allowed one run to some in and score to cut the lead to 3-1.
Iowa Park scored one run in the second inning, but it was the third inning that broke the game open.
Seven walks, two singles and a hit batter allowed the Hawks to score six runs to up their lead to 10-1. Bowie cycled through three pitchers during the inning.
While the Jackrabbit bats did have several chances to score with runners in scoring position in the second and fourth innings, the chances dried up as the game went along.
Iowa Park scored three runs on three singles and a double in the sixth inning to go up 13-1.
Bowie would need to score at least three runs to prevent the game from stopping early.
Unfortunately, despite a one out drawn walk, the Jackrabbits did not threaten to score and the game did end early.
Iowa Park won 13-1.
