Baseball Bears Fall Full Game Back in Heated Race for District 20-4A Crown
LC-M pitchers Shane Waddell and Taylor Thompson combined their talents to hold the Nederland Bulldogs scoreless for six full innings in a game originally scheduled for last Friday, postponed due to bad weather. Played in Nederland on Monday evening, a large number of enthusiastic fans were in attendence.
Nederland hitters dampened the Bears district title hopes early, in the bottom of the first, when the Bulldogs scored all four of their winning runs. The LC-M Bears managed to score off hard throwing Josh Dean only with single runs in their fourth and fifth innings.
Pitcher Josh Kirby closed out the game for the Bulldogs and was credited with a save, sealing the win for Dean.
The hardest hit ball of the evening by either team was a clean double by Bear shortstop Stefan Cloeren to deep left center in the top of the fifth. Cloeren then was able to cross home plate on a passed ball, bringing game scoring to its final 4-2 tally, and giving the Bulldogs sole possession of first place in district competition, with but a couple of games remaining to be played by each team before playoff competition begins.
