CHS Baseball: Tigers run away from Whitehouse, 11-3

Corsicana — The Corsicana Tigers ran away from the Whitehouse Wildcats with a 7 run 6th inning to defeat the defending state semifinalist 11-3 Friday night in a very emotional game.  The tigers managed to score a run in the 4 of the first 5 innings to hold a 4-3 lead going into the bottom of the 6th when the flood gates opened.

Trevor Nolen started the game for the Tigers and picked up the win.  He pitched 5 innings and and allowed 2 runs on 6 hits and showed an ability to pitch around potential trouble.  The Tigers fell behind in the first after Nolen gave up a one out walk to the number two hitter Caleb McNulty.  McNulty went from 1st to 3rd on a wild pitch and then scored as Nolen allowed a slow roller off the end of the bat of Pat Mahomes to go under his glove and the throw to the plate was not in time to get McNulty.  Tanner Roach followed a strikeout by starting pitcher Ryan Cheatham  with the first of his three hits to give Whitehouse runners at the corners with two outs.  Nolen then got Peyton Conser to hit a soft line drive to Bobby Lopez to end the threat.  The Tigers answered in the bottom of the first when Layton Wolver lead off with a line drive up the middle for a hit.  Bobby Lopez followed with a walk.  The runners advanced on a past ball.  Joe Vasquez then hit a ground ball to the pitcher that looked like it would score a run but Cheatham made a diving stop to hold the runner at 3rd and get the out.  Trevor Nolen got the RBI on a ground out to short.  The Tigers took the lead in the 2nd inning after three consecutive walks by Cheatham who was then pulled.  Conser came into the game to get Wolver to pop up to short right field.  This brought up hot hitting Bobby Lopez up with one out and the bases loaded.  Lopez hit a laser shot to left field which was caught.  Rhett Holcomb tagged and scored from 3rd base but on th eplay Hunter Hayes was caught running from 2nd where he had apparently failed to tag up and was called out.  After some controversy and discussion among the umpires The Tigers were awarded the run.  Whitehouse coach Derrick Jenkins was upset after this decision and was eventually restricted to the dugout for the remainder of the game. The Tigers added a run in the 4th as Carlos Vega came around to score after reaching on an error as the 3rd basemen had to hurry in fielding Vega's bunt.  The Tigers could have had more as they had the bases loaded when Lopez hit a hard shot at the shortstop and Whitehouse was able to turn a double play.  The Tigers added another run in the 5th after a leadoff double by Nolen who scored on a perfectly executed squeeze play by Vega.  This run pushed the lead gave the Tigers a two run cushion as the Wildcats had scored in the top of the inning.  The Wildcats then scored a run in the top of the 6th to cut the lead to 4-3 as Conser lead off the inning with a single off closer Corbin Hall.  The freshman then walked Rex Swinney and the Wildcats looked to have something working with two on and no outs. Hall then induced a pop up to Lopez and a short fly ball in right to Jackson Kennemore.  Coleman Patterson then had a single to drive in Conser but Hall would get McNulty to hit a fly ball to centerfield that Holomb was able to track down to end the threat.

    It's here.
    When the sun comes up Monday morning it's not just the dawn of a new day, but the dawn of a new season — it's the beginning of two-a-days.
    Eight of the nine schools in the Golden Circle will begin football practice Monday while Corsicana waits until Aug. 8 to start. The Tigers begin a week later because they held spring practice.
    For last year's playoff teams such as Mildred, Blooming Grove, Kerens, Frost and Hubbard Monday begins a road back to the postseason and for everyone else its the start of a new march. For everyone, it's the most optimistic day of the year.

  • RON MORGAN.jpg Morgan: ESPN was wrong in suspending Smith

    I won’t be watching ESPN this coming week. For a network that has been made into an empire by covering baseballs, footballs, basketballs, golf balls, soccer balls, tennis balls (I’ve never watched hockey, but I understand they have no balls), this network is much like hockey. They lack the things they are covering.

    It didn't take long for Navarro football Coach Brian Mayper  to deliver his preseason message at the SWJCFC Media Day Thursday.
    “No surprises at Navarro,'' said Mayper, the first of the seven conference coaches to speak to the media. “We're running the same stuff. You guys know we're going to run the ball. And thank God, we're not changes defenses again this year.''
