Bulldogs Go Deep Twice in the Sixth, Levelland Drops Game One Three-to-One

LoboAreaChamps2017The Abilene Wylie Bulldogs got back to back home runs in the sixth on Thursday night and the Levelland Lobos dropped game one of the best of three series in a 3-to-1 loss to the Bulldogs.

Levelland drew first blood in the first when Tameron Duran would walk and steal second base. He would score on a RBI single to right from Nick Gerber and Levelland jumped in front one-to-nothing after one inning.

Abilene Wylie would threaten all day.

The Bulldogs loaded the bases with one out in the third but a four-six-three double play would put out the fire.

The Bulldogs loaded them with nobody out in the fourth but a popup and a one-two-three double play again ended the threat.

The Bulldogs found the board in the sixth. With two outs, Cameron Hannah and Mason Schubert would hit back-to-back solo home runs and that would be enough.

Abilene Wylie would add a run in the seven on a walk and a double and Levelland couldn’t find the board for the back six innings and lost the contest three-to-one.

Abilene Wylie got three runs on seven hits with no errors and eight left. Levelland got one run on four hits with no errors and four left.

Connor Carlton took the start but didn’t figure in. He worked four and a third allowing one run on three hits, three walks, and four strike outs.

Zach Smith took the win in relief. He threw two and two-thirds of shutout baseball on one hit, one walk and two strike outs.

Jacob Ochoa was the hard luck chuck loser. He worked six and two-thirds allowing three runs on seven hits, seven walks and five strike outs.

Tanner Marrow tossed a third of shutout relief getting one out on four pithes.

The series has the Abilene Wylie Bulldogs ahead one-to-nothing as the series moves to game two on Saturday.

Game Two is scheduled for a 1:00pm first pitch and game three will directly follow if needed.

Both games will be played at Cardinal Field in Hermleigh.

Levelland Lobos Overcome Early Deficit and Handle Bushland 10-to-9 to Win First Regional Quarterfinal in Program History

LobosRegionalQuarterfinalsThe Levelland Lobos banged out 14 hits on Saturday and overcame a four-to-nothing deficit to defeat the Bushland Falcons 10-to-9. More importantly, the win earns the Lobos a two game sweep over the Falcons, and bigger yet, the first Regional Quarterfinal Championship in program history.

Bushland jumped on the Lobos right out of the gate.

Bushland Colton Moore reached on a fielder’s choice and Bostyn Andrews followed hit by a pitch. Hayden Martin would single in the first run and the second would score on a Levelland throwing error. Two more would cross on a RBI double from Cole Champman and Bushland was in front four-to-nothing after a half inning.

Levelland cut the lead quickly.

Zack Estrada reached on a Bushland error and Tameron Duran bunted his way aboard giving the Lobos two on and nobody out. After Nolberto Pena would strike out, Nick Gerber was hit by a pitch to load the bases. After a Jacob Ochoa would strike out it looked bleak but Tyler Haywood would come through on a three RBI triple to right-center and Levelland was quickly back in it.

Bushland led four-to-three after one inning.

Levelland took the lead in the second.

Triston Montgomery would walk and advance to second on a bunt from Damian Bordayo. Zack Estrada would follow with a single and Tameron Duran would single in Montgomery to tie the game at four-to-four. After a walk to Nolberto Pena, Duran would score on a sacrifice fly from Nick Gerber and Jacob Ochoa followed with a two RBI triple. Before the dust settled, Levelland had grabbed a seven-to-four lead after two.

They would score again in the third on a Triston Montgomery single and a second RBI single from Tameron Duran growing the lead to Levelland 8, Bushland 4 after three.

Bushland rallied in the fifth.

Walks to Hunter Boydston and Boyston Andrews coupled with a walk to Colton Moore set up a two RBI single from Hayden Martin cutting the lead to Levelland 8, Bushland 6. They would get one more on a sacrifice fly from Diego Saucedo and cut the lead to eight-to-seven Levelland to the bottom of the fifth.

Levelland answered.

Singles from Zack Estrada, Tameron Duran, Nolberto Pena and Nick Gerber would net the Lobos two two out runs in the fifth stretching the lead to Levelland 10, Bushland 7 to the sixth.

Bushland made one more rally in the top of the seventh.

Hunter Boydston would be hit by a pitch and Colton Moore walked. Bostyn Andrews would ring the bell with and RBI single to left and Levelland’s lead was cut to 10-to-8. Then Hayden Martin would come to the plate. He would line an RBI single to right cutting the lead to Levelland 10, Bushland 9 but on the play, Matt Estrada would cut down Bostyn Andrews at third base. It would leave Bushland a runner at first and one out.

That was that. Tanner Marrow, on in relief of Jorge Mendiaz would get fly outs from Diego Saucedo and Slade Phillips and Levelland prevailed for the 10-to-nine win and their first Regional Quarterfinal Championship in the programs history.

Jorge Mendiaz tossed the win working six innings while allowing nine runs with seven earned. Those came on eight hits, three walks, two hit batters and four strikeouts.

Tanner Marrow tossed a save on one inning of shut out baseball. While facing three Falcons in the seventh he allowed on hit and only threw seven pitches to record three outs.

Hayden Martin took the loss throwing two and two-thirds. He allowed eight runs with five earned on seven hits, three walks, a hit batter and three strikeouts.

Logan Ellis worked three and a third allowing two runs, both earned, on seven hits, a walk and three strikeouts.

The win moves the Lobos to 32-and-four on the year as they win their first Regional Quarterfinal Championship in school history.

It sets the Lobos a date with the Abilene Wylie Bulldogs for the 4A Region One Semi-Final.

The series will be played at Hermleigh ISD located just south of Snyder.

Lobos Get Two RBI from Gerber and Montgomery, Levelland Leads Bushland 1-0

LoboAreaChamps2017Nick Gerber and Triston Montgomery drove in two each on Friday night as the Levelland Lobos defeated Bushland 5-to-2.  The win means a one game lead for the Levelland Lobos in the best of three Region One Quarterfinal Championship.

Bushland got on the board first as the Lobo defense started off rocky.  Colton Moore would reach on a Lobo throwing error.  He would go to third on a passed ball and score on the throwing error giving the Falcons a one-to-nothing lead after one.

The lead was short lived as Levelland got on the board in the second when Jacob Ochoa would open with a double to right-center.  Jorge Mendiaz would come on to run for Ochoa and score on a RBI single from Tanner Morrow.  That tied the game at one-to-one to the bottom of the second.

Bushland went quietly in the second and the Lobos jumped back on the board in the third.

Tameron Duran reached on a dropped third strike and Nolberto Pena would follow with his second single of the day.  Duran would go to third on that single and Pena would advance to second behind the play setting the table for Nick Gerber.  Gerber would hit a rocket of the third baseman’s glove scoring Duran and Pena and putting Levelland in front three-to-one to the bottom of the third.

Bushland would get their only other run in the third.

Colton Moore was hit by a pitch, went to third on a single from Bostyn Andrews and score on a passed ball.  That would set the score at Levelland 3, Bushland 2 after three.

That was as close as Bushland would get.

The game remained tied three-to-two to the top of the sixth then Triston Montgomery gave the Lobos some insurance.

Jacob Ochoa and Tyler Haywood reached on back-to-back singles and move to third and second on a solid bunt from Tanner Morrow.  Triston Montgomery would line a two strike pitch over the bag at second scoring both Mendiaz, running for Ochoa, and Haywood.

That would be plenty as despite getting three base runners in the final two frames, Jacob Ochoa kept the Falcons off the board and Levelland went on for the five-to-two win.

Levelland collect five runs on 12 hits with three errors and seven left while Bushland tallied just two runs on three hits, left seven standing and committed two errors.

Jacob Ochoa worked a complete game win tossing all seven innings on 101 pitches.  He allowed two runs with none earned on three hits, three walks, two hit batters and four strike outs.

Colton Kirkland took the loss for Bushland allowing five runs with three earned through seven innings.  Those came on 12 hits, one walk and four strikeouts.

The win moves the Lobos to 31-and-four on the season while Bushland slips to 26-and-seven.

Levelland takes a one-to-nothing lead into game two of the best of three series.

Game Two is set for Saturday morning at 10:00am at Wilder Field on the campus of Wayland Baptist University in Plainview.  Game three will directly follow game two if needed.
