Jackrabbit baseball loses at Jacksboro

Published

on

Boston Farris successfully steals second base as a Jacksboro player fields a high throw from his catcher.

The Bowie Jackrabbits lost at Jacksboro on Friday night to start the second round of district play.
The Tigers won 6-1 as they got both games against the Jackrabbits this season.
Bowie was coming off two straight wins. Counting a dud loss against Holliday, the Jackrabbits had won three of their last four games to close the first round of district with a 3-3 record and fourth place in the standings.
Jacksboro was coming off two straight losses and were one spot ahead of Bowie in the standings.
Cy Egenbacher got the start on the mound for the Jackrabbits and his biggest hurdle came in the first inning.
After Bowie failed to get a runner on base, two singles and two walks had the Tigers score a run and the bases loaded with no outs.
A pop fly in foul territory allowed one run to score. An error on a throw from the catcher trying to prevent other runners from tagging up allowed another run to score as Jacksboro led 3-0.
After a fly out and a walk put the bases loaded with two outs, Egenbacher struck out the next batter to stop the bleeding.
Bowie batters early in the game were eager to make contact, but the balls went straight to Jacksboro fielders who made the routine outs to keep the Jackrabbits off the bases.
Egenbacher saw some heat again in the third inning. Two singles and an intentional walk loaded the bases up again with two outs. Again, Egenbacher struck out the next batter as he got out of the jam scot-free.
Bowie got its first baserunner in the fourth inning when Hayden Rodriguez hit a single. Unfortunately, it was followed up by an inning ending double-play.
With the Tigers top of the lineup, they struck fast to add to their lead. The lead-off batter got a single. After a fly out, the base runner stole second base. The next batter then drove him in with a single to put Jacksboro up 4-0.
The Jackrabbits had two base hits in the fifth inning, but neither led to anything. Seth Mann led off with a line drive single that hit the pitcher (who was fine), but was thrown out later trying to steal second base.
Rayder Mann followed with a single to right field. He advanced to second base on a groundout, but the next batter lined out to second base for out three.
Bowie finally got on the board in the sixth inning. Will Cross was hit by a pitch to lead off the inning. After a fielder’s choice groundout, Boston Farris was on the base paths. Tucker Jones was then hit by a pitch and Farris was later picked off at second base.
Rodriguez then hit a groundball fielded by the pitcher. He then made Jacksboro’s only fielding error of the game, tossing the ball off target of first base.
This allowed Jones to score from first base to cut the lead to 4-1 while Rodriguez advanced to third base. Unfortunately, that was all the runs Bowie could squeeze out of the situation as the next batter flew out to right field.
With the Tiger’s top of the lineup coming up, Jacksobro was able to make up that run and then some in the same inning.
After a leadoff single and a walk followed, a double into left field allowed both players to score to put the Tigers up 6-1.
Andrew Sandhoff came in to pitch in relief. He induced a pop out and the next player then hit a line drive to shortstop Farris who threw to third base for an inning ending double-play.
Bowie had only three more outs to work with in the game if it wanted to come back. Despite the team striking out only one time the previous six innings, all three Jackrabbit batters struck out to end the game.
Jacksboro won 6-1.
