The Cuero Record
Following a rain-out in their scheduled season-opener against San Antonio Southside, Cuero opened the 10th Annual Gobbler Classic with a win over Edna, 7-3, and a tie against Rockport, 4-4. John Rodriguez earned the win in game one, tossing three shutout innings, while Joey Baker drove in three of the team’s four runs in game two.
Edna took an early 2-0 lead in game one, plating unearned runs in the opening two innings.
Junior Colton Blackwell took the start on the mound in the Gobbler’s season-opener, going three innings and allowing three runs, only one earned.
Blackwell helped his own cause, scoring on a Jeremiah Diaz RBI double in the second to cut the lead in half.
