BRIDGE CITY —
Shugart has become comfortable in any situation and Friday he came in once again with the bases loaded and the Cardinals clinging to a 4-2 lead.
The sophomore was not phased and got a groundout to end the game.
“Chase is lights out,” Guidry said. “Orangefield didn't go away. They became more aggressive at the plate after the first couple of innings.”
Shugart said he looks forward to coming into games when most players would be a bit nervous.
“I do better when the game is on the line,” Shugart said. “I am comfortable knowing we have a lead and all I have to do is get a few outs. Orangefield is a scrappy team. These types of games have really brought us together as a team. We have learned this is not a one-person sport and we need our whole team to win the games.”
Bridge City scored its first run on a RBI double by Langston which scored Hunter Uzzle. Langston made it 2-0 on a wild pitch.
Guidry later plated Shugart on a sacrifice fly.
Orangefield notched its lone two runs of the night in the top of the fifth on a two-run error. Cody Angelle and Tryce Howard both scored.
