Lobos Hold Off Charging Brownfield for Nine-to-Seven Road Win, Levelland to Five-and-Two

April 11, 2018

loboloyaltyLevelland Lobos built a nine to one lead early on Tuesday night but had to hold off a charging Brownfield for a 9-to-7 road win to get to five-and-two in district play.

After an early one-to-nothing Brownfield Cub lead, Levelland busted loose in the third driving across seven runs in the frame and took a seven-to-one lead through three.

Levelland got two more in the fourth and certainly looked to be in control leading nine-to-one to the bottom of the fourth.

Then came the Cubs.

Brownfield rallied for six in the bottom of the fourth and closed the gap to Levelland 9, Brownfield 7 after four.

As quick as the down pour of offense started, it quit.

Straton Dobson and Jorge Mendiaz would combine for three-and-a-third scoreless frames while Brownfield shut out Levelland through the final three frames as well and Levelland went on for the nine-to-seven win.

Levelland scored nine runs on 11 hits with two errors while Brownfield got seven runs on seven hits with one error.

Levelland’s Zak Betancourt pitched the win working three and two-thirds allowing seven runs with just four earned on five hits, five walks and five strikeouts. Straton Dobson worked an inning and a third scoreless in middle relief on one hit and one strikeout. Jorge Mendiaz picked up a two inning save allowing one hit and striking out one.

The Brownfield Cubs move to two-and-four on the year as they get ready travel to the struggling Seminole Indians.

Levelland moves to four-and-two and into a four way tie for first place. The Lobos return home on Friday to host the Lubbock Estacado Matadors who are on a four game winning streak.

Pregame on Friday night starts at 6:30pm with First Pitch at 7:00pm on KLVT AM1230 and http://www.klvtradio.com!
