HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL
Pearsall split a pair of outings in baseball action last week, knocking off San Antonio Cornerstone 9-6 and falling to the SA Central Catholic Buttons 10-0 in non-district play.
The games were the final in the Mavericks’ non-district slate. The team opens league play this week with games at Uvalde and at home against Carrizo Springs.
“We would have liked to go into district on a better note but I think we have still put ourselves in a good position to compete for a district championship,” PHS Head Coach Ray Talamantes said. “That has always been the goal.”
The Mavs played well defensively and used an opportunistic offense to claim the win over Cornerstone.
“We played well defensively and got a good pitching performance from sophomore Jacob Dominguez,” the coach said. “Offensively, we executed when we needed to and got some timely hitting.”
Against a tough Central Catholic squad, a slow start hurt Pearsall out of the gates.
“Unfortunately, we were not able to overcome a poor defensive first inning.”
In junior varsity action, Pearsall also split its outings last week, falling to Cornerstone 12-3 before earning a narrow 8-5 decision over SA West Campus. The team then overcame some miscues to notch their first win of the season in knocking off the Cougars.
The Mavericks will host Carrizo Springs this Friday.
