NJCAA Baseball: Navarro sweeps doubleheader

Corsicana — The Navarro Bulldogs were up to their old tricks Tuesday afternoon. Rallying in the late innings yet again at home.

Jovan Hernandez had a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the sixth and Blake Griffin came on for a three-out save as Navarro won its home opener over Bossier Parish 4-3 on Tuesday afternoon at Graham Field.

Navarro (6-5, 1-0) rallied for two runs in the bottom of the fifth to tie the game and got another run in the next inning to take its first lead of the seven-inning game.

J.P. Phillips, who homered in the third inning to tie the game at 1-1, started the fifth-inning rally with a one-out single up the middle. Mason Salazar followed with a triple up the left-center field alley to make it 3-2 Bossier. Kaleb Goodell played the tying run with a ground out to second.

Chad Young, who earned the win, produced a shutdown inning in the top of the sixth, setting up the game-winning rally. Tyler Wilson had a one-out single and Byron Reichstein followed with double to put runners at second and third. Campbell Cooper was intentionally walked to the load the bases. Hernandez then sent a shallow fly ball into right field and Wilson scored on a poor throw.

Griffin, who has been awesome so far this season, got two fly balls and strikeout looking to cruise through the top of the seventh. He has two saves in two chances this season.

Phillips pumped up Navarro's dugout with his home run in the bottom of the third. The Bulldogs hit three home runs in 25 home games last season. Phillips produced one in the first home game with a very light breeze, a rarity at Graham Field, where the prevailing wind usually blows straight in from center field.

    The wait is over.
    And it came just in time for Brett Anderson, who left it all on the mound Tuesday night at Kerens, where he pitched a masterpiece to lead the Bobcats over Cayuga, 5-1, and help the program win its first baseball district title since 1981.
    “I've got no gas left. I'm out,'' said Anderson, a senior lefty who stopped Cayuga cold, holding the three-time defending district champs to just three singles while striking out 14.
