Wildcats win 10-7 thriller over Lobos

User Rating: / 52

Twice the Wildcats rallied from behind.

The second time, sparked by a Jocko Spataro two-run double, Sulphur Springs got the lead to stay as they took a 10-7 win Friday over Longview.

The crowd in and around Eagle Stadium, including bleacher creatures on the top row of Gerald Prim Stadium got to see a thrilling battle with more twists and turns than a rollercoaster.

The District 13-4A game came down to the final innings, and actually down to one at-bat and in particular one pitch.

"It was a curveball that didn't curve, it just hung there," said Spataro of the Luke Nash pitch in the sixth inning. Spataro blasted the pitch down the left field line with two outs and two runners on base. Longview outfielder Andrew Deerfield tried to make a running grab, but the ball hit off his glove allowing Spataro to advance to second with a double, but more importantly two runs to score and break the 7-all tie.


Pitching Perfection -- Lady Cats blank Lady Lobos, 10-0

User Rating: / 60

It was perfection.

Not just by one person, but two Sulphur Springs pitchers, Kaci Kennedy and Taylor Clifton, combined for a 10-0 win over Longview and a perfect game.

Goose eggs on the scoring sheet never looked so pretty as the Lady Cats gave up nothing to the visitors Friday night. It was 18 up and 18 down.

Perfection means the Lady Lobos did not touch the basepaths. They did not reach by a hit, run, error or walk Friday.

Kennedy pitched the first three innings, facing nine batters and striking out five. Clifton pitched three innings of relief in the 10-run rule. She faced nine batters and struck out three.

“It was a great pitching performance for us,” said Sulphur Springs head baseball coach David Carrillo. “I think we were more relaxed in this game and we played well. You can’t say much more than perfection.”
