There is a five-way tie for third place in the district, which is topped off by Jarrell at 5-0 and Cameron at 3-2.

Ever ybody else— including Thorndale—is log jammed at 2-3.

“We have been in every ball game we have played,” said Thorndale Coach Kelly Kuhl. “We just need to shore up our defense and we will win a few of the games that we have lost. We have been making errors at inopportune times.”

“Offensively we have not gotten the big hit. Against Lago Vista we left 11 people on base and six against Rogers.”

The Bulldogs defeated Academy 6-5, taking advantage of four Academy errors.

Eric Guzman and Tyler Miller had two hits apiece with Miller slapping a pair of doubles.

Josh Vasquez and Dillon Irwin delivered RBIs as well.
