GC Baseball/Softball: Roundup -- Kerens' Anderson pitches perfect game (ADDS Dawson baseball)

Corsicana — Brett Anderson threw a five-inning perfect game Friday at home to lead Kerens over Neches 11-0 in a key district game that leaves the Bobcats in first place with a two-game lead. Anderson walked three times and scored twice. He had one strikeout and now has 71 for the season while shutting down Neches without a hit or a walk, retiring all 15 batters he faced.

Noah Solis went 2 for 2, scored twice and drove in a run, and Mitchell Solis went 1 for 1 and drove in three runs. Jeremy Gould went 2 for 3 and score three runs for the Bobcats, who are now 12-3 for the season.

Wortham 8, Abbott 3

Rudy Miller went 1 for 3 with a double and two RBI‘s, Jordan Lansford went 1 for 3 with a double and an RBI and Trent Williams went 1 for 3 and drove in a run to lead Wortham, which is now 10-10 and 3-4 in the district race.

Dalton Dunnahoe (3-2) went six innings to get the win. He gave up three earned runs, struck out one and didn‘t allow a walk.

Dawson 10, Riesel 1


The Dawson Bulldogs got a strong pitching performance from Justin Gray and a convincing 10-1 win over Riesel Friday. Gray pitched a complete game, giving up an earned run, striking out six and walking two. 

The Bulldog defense stepped up. There were plays in the outfield made by Dalton Long, covering a lot of territory to rob hitters of extra base hits, and the play of freshmen Connor Mcentire and Austin Jackson giving all out effort to rob hitters of base hits. The play behind the plate from Mason Burleson kept the running game of Riesel to a minimum as he threw out the only would-be base stealer.

The scoring started in the fourth inning with Lane Dotson hitting a laser over the the left field wall to stake Dawson to a 1-0 lead. It picked up again in the sixth with Gray getting hit by a pitch, Dotson walking and Trent Underwood singling to load the bases for Brandon Cehand, who singled to score a run. Seth Lachney then singled to score another run and with the bases still loaded, Mcentire came up and delivered a bases-clearing triple to the center field wall. Reese Walker then came up with a base hit to score Mcentire. To finish off the scoring, Long singled to right field, scoring Reese from second base.

    The Cowboys started training camp the same week that Robert Newhouse died.
    In a way, that’s very unfortunate for Jerry. Thinking back to the “Human Bowling Ball” and the teams of that era might lead to the inevitable comparisons to today’s product on the field.

    His father was a head coach for years at Pecos High and his brother-in-law is the head football coach at DeSoto, but Lawrence Williams Jr., a man who loves coaching football, never had any ideas about being the head man.
    “I love coaching,'' said Williams as he sat at his desk in Blooming Grove, where he became the Lions' head coach this summer. “I just never thought about being the head coach and I never applied to be a head coach. With this job I can still coach.''
