Kitty Kats win over Runge Lady Jackets 16-10

By Tim O’Malley
Yorktown News-View

It was a do or die for the Yorktown Kitty Kats last Friday night playing their last district game against Runge at home.

Yorktown was 2-7 while Runge was 3-6 in district. If Yorktown lost to Runge their season was over. That was not the case as they defeated Runge 16-10. The two teams will play again to determine fourth place and who goes into play-off round.

The Kitty Kats played heads up ball letting Runge know they came to win. During the first inning Runge had a runner at first. The runner attempted to steal second only to be picked off by Yorktown catcher Alexis Longoria when she threw the ball to first. First baseman Stephanie Mattox threw the ball to second to tag out the runner. Third baseman Laycee Guerrero stopped a ground ball for the second out at first and Kassi Billings picked up a grounder for the throw out at first.

Veit, Baker throw shutout

By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

Coming off a 6-0 loss on the road against La Vernia, the Gobbler were poised to come through with a big win over visiting Canyon Lake. After two scoreless innings opened the game, Cuero broke through with three runs in the third and went on to win, 8-0, in a rain-shortened contest.

Garrett Veit took the start on the mound and earned the winning with three shutout innings, only allowing one hit.

Veit helped his own cause by driving in the first two runs of the game. Jeremiah Diaz opened the third with a single. Dawston Whitfield kept the inning going with a two-out walk, before Veit drove in Diaz and Drew Rimenschneider on a deep single to right center. Rimenschneider was courtesy running for Whitfield. Veit then stole second base and scored the third run of the inning on an error by the second baseman.

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.”
