High-powered Lady Gobbler offense downs Canyon Lake

By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

Courtney Clark continued to impress with her bat, while Regen Dunn earned another win in the circle for the Lady Gobblers. Cuero defeated Canyon Lake 15-2 in five innings on Tuesday night, April 12, moving to 6-4 in district play.

Four runs came in to score for Cuero in the first. With Dunn and the Lady Gobbler defense playing well, this would be more than enough. Clark plated Dunn with the first run of the game on a single. After back-to-back groundouts, Ashley Liendo kept the inning alive with an infield single which scored Raevin Ruiz who reached on an error. Clark scored on a passed ball, before Liendo came in on an error by the catcher.

Lady Gobblers shutout La Vernia Lady Bears

By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

Cuero was focused on making up for a 10-6 loss to La Vernia in the first half of district play, especially on their home field. Regen Dunn posted a complete game shutout, Emma Stanfield blasted a two-run homer and the Lady Gobbler moved to 5-4 in district with a 9-0 win over the Lady Bears on Friday night, April 8.

Dunn was masterful again from the start, striking out 11 batters in the first four innings and 15 for the game.

La Vernia notched three straight singles to open the fourth, but back-to-back strikeouts by Dunn and a flyout to Brooke Opiela in right field kept the shutout alive.

“It’s a position we have struggled in,” coach Cody Miller said, referring to the bases-loaded jam in the fourth. “She [Dunn] zoned in and did not put a lot of pressure on herself.”

It was a tough day on the mound for the Yorktown Wildcats at home as they faced Corpus Christi London last Friday losing 14-0.

Reagan Billing was the starting pitcher allowing one unearned run in the first inning before finishing up after the third batter in the third.

Cy Strieber came in with runners on  first and third base. CC London attempted a squeeze play with the third base runner trying to steal home before catcher Milam Eckhardt picked him off for the second out. The next batter walked before second baseman Justin Lynch picked up a grounder to throw out the batter at first.

Through the third inning Yorktown only had one hit by Dylan Sinast in the second. The momentum nearly made a turn with one out and two runners on base but were left standing with two more strikeouts. CC London had the lead after the fourth inning, 4-0.
