Rally in fifth by Jackets sends Eagles to 9-6 loss
PECOS, May 2, 2001 - The Pecos Eagles' softball team was just able to make
a big early offensive output stand up in their final regular season game.
But they couldn't pull off the trick twice in a row, and the Kermit Yellowjackets
rallied on Tuesday for a 9-6 home field win, in a playoff practice game
for both teams.
The Eagles finished District 2-4A play with a 10-0 record for the first
time ever, and Tuesday's game was a tune-up for their area round playoff
game against Andrews in Midland on Friday. They came in off a 9-7 win over
San Elizario, in a game where the Eagles raced out to a 6-1 lead, then
had to survive a pair of San Eli comebacks.
This time, the Jackets never let the Eagles get too far ahead _ Kermit
scored three times in the first inning after Pecos took a 4-0 lead, and
pushed a run across in the second, after the Eagles widened their lead
to 6-3. But pitcher Amanda Soltero shut the door on Pecos over the final
five innings, while the Jackets got to pitcher Stephanie Herrera for five
runs in the fifth inning to win the game.
Herrera went five innings for the Eagles and took the loss, with Alexa
Marquez pitching the final inning for Pecos.
Both teams had problems on defense Tuesday. Pecos collected just four
hits and committed five errors, while Kermit made seven errors while collecting
only five hits.
The loss dropped the Eagles to 13-10 on the season going into their
playoff game against Andrews, at Muggs Field in Midland on Friday, starting
at 6 p.m. It's the first meeting between Pecos and Andrews in three years,
since they were part of District 4-4A in 1998, the Eagles' first season
of varsity softball play.
