LINDALE — For the second year in a row, Sulphur Springs beat all defenders during play in the Robbie Surratt Memorial Tournament in Lindale.
After going 3-0 the first three games, the Wildcats closed out with a bang, edging district foe Mount Pleasant, 8-7 in a baseball game called due to time restrictions Saturday.
“We were up 8-7 when umpires called the game and stopped play,” said Jerrod Hammack, Sulphur Springs head baseball coach. “That’s is part of the rules for that tournament. They had a ‘drop dead’ rule and play stops.”
The Wildcats used three pitchers to get the win. Ethan Phillips started and went two innings on the hill. Dillon Carpenter pitched one frame before giving way to Hunter Elliott to complete the game.
Sulphur Springs knocked Mount Pleasant around with both Brennan Brock and Landon Brock going 2-for-4 at the plate.
“I am proud of the way we played in the tournament,” Hammack added. “We are close to playing the way I think the game should be played as a team.”
The Wildcats started the tournament with an 8-1 win over Spring Hill. Sulphur Springs then beat the host school Lindale, 7-3.
During early Friday action, Sulphur Springs blanked a good Bullard team, 8-0.
Saturday the Wildcats took the win over the Tigers to go 7-1 on the year.
Sulphur Springs will participate in the Ennis Tournament, Thursday through Saturday.
