Mustangs split at Certa-Bearden

WEST ORANGE — The West Orange-Stark Mustangs split a pair of games at their own Certa-Bearden Tournament Thursday afternoon at Ronnie Anderson Park.

The Mustangs throttled the Kirbyville Wildcats 11-1 in their second game of the day after suffering a tough 10-9 five-inning setback at the hands of Port Arthur Memorial earlier in the day.

WO-S actually outhit Memorial 7-6 in the early contest. However, the Titans took advantage of 10 walks issued by three Mustangs pitchers along with three other batters getting hit by pitches.

The Mustangs trailed 6-4 in the bottom of the fourth but scrambled back to take a 8-6 lead.

Will Johnson, who walked and went to third on an error, scored on a passed ball to trim the margin to 6-5. Grant Lapoint drew a walk and eventually scored on a Tevin Terrell RBI single to center.

With two outs, Aidan Anderson made it 8-6 Mustangs when he crushed a Robert Howard offering over the centerfield fence for a two-run home-run blast.

The Titans, however, responded with four runs in the top of the fifth. They scored two straight runs after batters got hit by a pitch with the bases loaded to tie it.

Memorial then added a run on a bases-loaded walk and went up 10-8 by scoring on a passed ball.

The Mustangs trimmed the margin to 10-9 in the bottom of the fifth. Chase Rutledge had a leadoff single to shallow right, went to second on a wild pitch and eventually scored on a Johnson groundout.

Memorial snared a 1-0 lead in the top of the third when Jonathan Sanchez scored on a bases-loaded walk to Ernesto Ramirez.

The Mustangs erupted for four runs in the bottom half of the third.

Johnson had a leadoff single to right. Maurice Morris followed with a perfect bunt and reached on a Titan error. Terrell then hit a grounder that Memorial second baseman Ramiro Sanchez mishandled as Johnson and Morris both scored.

After Aidan Anderson singled, Grant Anderson ripped a RBI double to left that plated Terrell for a 3-1 lead. Aidan Anderson then scored on a third-strike passed ball to Kalen Garrett.

The Titans tallied six runs in the fourth to take a 6-4 edge.

Sanchez made it 4-2 with a RBI groundout. After a bases-loaded walk that scored a run, Ramirez put the Titans up 5-4 with a two-run bloop single between second base and centerfield. Taylor Larrie eventually scored on a passed ball to make it 6-4.

The Mustangs used a eight-run second inning and a solid pitching effort from Brandon Lebouef to take down the Kirbyville Wildcats 11-1 in their second tilt.

LeBouef tossed all six innings, scattering five Wildcat hits.

The Mustang offense took advantage of seven walks, three hit batters and three errors from the Wildcats.

Terrell, who had five hits on the day, had three singles to spark the WO-S offense against the Wildcats. Grant Anderson laced a double and a single and Henry Forward added a single.

Games at WO-S Friday includes WO-S vs. Beaumont Kelly (12:30 p.m.), Hamshire-Fannett vs. Kelly (3 p.m.) and H-F vs. PA Memorial (5:30 p.m.). Games Saturday include East Chambers vs. Kirbyville (11 a.m.), East Chambers vs. H-F (1:30 p.m.), and WO-S vs. Deweyville (4 p.m.).
