DISTRICT 29-4A BASEBALL
After going 2-1 in district, Pearsall has struggled of late, dropping three straight league outings to dip to 2-4 in the standings and just out of playoff contention as the second round of 29-4A begins.
“We had a tough outing against Pleasanton,” PHS Head Coach Ray Talamantes said. “They have a pretty good ball team over there. We are much better that what we displayed that night but I will not take away from the talent on the other side. They are tough.”
Talamantes said the team showed improvement in its next outing, a 6-4 loss to Devine.
“I think we played an overall better game (against Devine),” the coach said. “We got good pitching from senior Abram Garcia, we just struggled and couldn’t manufacture more runs in the late innings.
“We gave ourselves a chance in our last at-bat but just couldn’t capitalize.”
In their only action last week, the Mavericks fell behind early and lost a 9-0 decision to Somerset to close out the first round of league play.
The Bulldogs plated six first inning runs and led 8-0 by the third inning.
Pearsall was at league-leading Floresville on Tuesday evening and will return home on Tuesday, April 11 to take on Uvalde.
Pleasanton is currently in first place at 7-0 in the standings while Floresville is second and Devine is third. Somerset and Pearsall have identical 2-4 marks but the Bulldogs currently hold the tiebreaker edge over the Mavericks.
