Catcher Tucker Jones fields a bunt a throws the ball to first base for an out.

The Bowie Jackrabbits got a big pick-me-up win at home against Vernon on Friday night.
The Jackrabbits won 13-2 after five innings due to run-rule against the Lions.
Bowie was coming off tough losses against Jacksboro and Iowa Park and needed a game to get its confidence back. The Jackrabbits had beaten Vernon the first time pretty easily 8-2, but really needed to bounce back after losing by run-rule to Iowa Park.
Bowie started off fast in the first inning. Seth Mann drove in Tucker Jones with a single. Two singles later with the bases loaded, Edmon DeLeon drove in a run with a single up the middle.
After a shallow fly out, Rayder Mann hit a two RBI single. Will Cross then came up to bat and hit a groundball to the shortstop that resulted in an error and another run came in to score.
The Jackrabbits were up 6-0 after the first inning.
Bowie kept it up in the second inning. With two hit batters and a single loading the bases up with no outs, De Leon drew a walk that scored one run. Cy Egenbacher followed with a two RBI single.
A balk allowed another run to come in and score. Two batters later, Cross grounded out to third base, but it drove in another run to put the Jackrabbits up 11-0.
Strangely, the teams exchanged scoreless third and fourth innings before Vernon batters finally got on the board.
After a leadoff single, a double scored the runner from first base. The Lions then executed a sacrifice bunt that allowed the base runner, who had advanced to third base, to score and make it 11-2.
Bowie needed to score at least one run to end the game early due to run-rule. The bats had stalled with the team being a bit too over aggressive after the hot start, but were locked in and focused after facing a bit of adversity on defense.
Tucker Jones hit a one out single and Mann followed by drawing a walk. After a strikeout for out two, Hayden Rodriguez came through with a hit into the gap for a double that scored both runs before his teammate mauled him during the celebration at second base.
Bowie won 13-2.
