Cards welcome Tigers in 21-3A showdown

BRIDGE CITY —  It’s early on in the District 21-3A baseball race but there will be a nice little showdown tonight when the Bridge City Cardinals welcome in the Silsbee Tigers to Cardinal Park.

The Cardinals and the Tigers are the only two squads that have not absorbed a loss after the first week of district.

Coach Chad Landry’s Cardinals enter with a 1-0 record after they defeated Buna 5-1 last Tuesday in their 21-3A opener. Meanwhile, the Tigers improved to 2-0 on the young district season Friday by downing Buna 11-0 in five innings.

The Cardinals had a bye in district play last Friday and held off a scrappy Woodville unit 9-5 in non-district action.

Woodville led 3-0 in the second inning and grabbed a 5-3 edge in the fourth before the Redbirds scored six unanswered runs to snag the win.

Hayden Guidry drove in three runs for the Cardinals. Chase Shugart had a pair of sacrifice flys that plated a pair of runs and Bryce Sampere had a big RBI double.

Both the West Orange-Stark Mustangs (1-1) and the Orangefield Bobcats (1-1) grabbed a pair of nice wins Friday to stay in the thick of what should be an outstanding race for the three playoff berths.

The Mustangs throttled Hardin-Jefferson (0-1) 14-1, getting a complete-game four-hitter from pitcher Grant Anderson.

Grant LaPoint went 2-for-3 at the plate for the Mustangs and had a two-run double while Tavin Terrell added a RBI double.

Meanwhile, the Bobcats took down Hamshire-Fannett (1-1) 6-4. Orangefield will welcome in Hardin-Jefferson tonight while the Mustangs will have their first-half bye.

In District 20-4A play, the Nederland Bulldogs (2-0) and Lumberton Raiders (2-0) stand atop the standings. Little Cypress-Mauriceville (1-1), Port Neches-Groves (1-1), Vidor (1-1) and Beaumont Central (1-1) are all a game back with Livingston (0-2) and Beaumont Ozen (0-2) are both seeking their first loop wins.

LC-M will look to bounce back from a tough 7-2 loss to PN-G last Friday in which the Bears only had two hits tonight when they welcome Nederland to Don Gibbens Field.

Nederland defeated Livingsto 4-1 on Friday behind a complete-game two-hitter by pitcher Carson Raines, who also struck out 11 Lions in the process.

Meanwhile, Vidor will try to slow down Lumberton’s momentum as the Pirates host the Raiders.

District baseball games scheduled for Friday include LC-M at Ozen, Vidor at Central, Hamshire-Fannett at Bridge City, and WO-S at Orangefield.
