Sulphur Springs and Nacogdoches went back and forth with the Wildcats ultimately emerging victorious Friday in game four of the Rose City Classic at Mike Carter Field.

The teams traded punches again in the second inning with Sulphur Springs scoring two in the top half on a two-run double from pitcher Jake Dougan. Again, the Dragons had an answer, scoring two runs in the bottom of the second, thanks to three Sulphur Springs errors.
