Eagles to use new pitchers in road games
The Pecos Eagles baseball and softball teams will be traveling south today, and will be using different pitchers than they have in recent games, when the girls go to Presidio to face the Blue Devils and the boys travel to Fort Stockton to take on the Panthers.
It’s the first game of the second half of the District 4-3A schedule for Pecos’ girls and the first road game in district play for the boys. The girls’ game is scheduled for a 5 p.m. start, while the boys will face Fort Stockton beginning at 7 p.m.
The girls were in Fort Stockton on Tuesday, where they shut out the Prowlers, 6-0, behind Stephanie Herrera’s one-hitter, to take a one-game lead over Fort Stockton in the race for the third and final district playoff berth. The Eagles are 3-2 in distrct, including a 15-0 home field victory over Presidio back on March 16. Herrera pitched the first two innings of that game, leaving after the Eagles had built a 14-0 lead. However, she will be competing at the Permian Basin Relays in Kermit today, so either her sister, Amalie, or Hillery Hinojos, will pitch against the Blue Devils.
Pecos’ boys opened District 4-3A baseball with a pair of wins, the latest a 7-2 victory on Tuesday over Monahans. Josh Anchondo went the distance on the mound in both victories, but for tonight, coach Elias Payan said either Jose Reyes or Eddie Vela would start for the Eagles.
Fort Stockton won their 4-3A opener over Kermit, but has dropped two road games since then, the latest by a 10-6 score on Tuesday in Presidio.
