GC Baseball/Softball Roundup: Hubbard beats Frost in baseball (Adds Mildred softball)

RICE — Trey Henderson held Frost scoreless and Josh Freeman knocked in three runs as the Hubbard Jaguars defeated the Polar Bears, 16-0, in a game shortened to four innings because of the mercy run rule. Game 2 of the best-of-three bi-district series is scheduled for Friday night at 7:00 p.m. At Rice High School.

In a preview of what was to come, Hubbard took advantage of two walks on eight consecutive pitches to begin the game as both runners scored without the benefit of a hit as Hubbard took an early 2-0 lead. Hubbard ended the night with 12 walks and only 8 hits as the Jaguars scored in all four innings.

Hubbard put the game away in the top of the second inning as the Jaguars sent 14 batters to the plate en route to scoring nine runs in the inning. Logan McClinton, who also scored three runs on the night, had a two-run double and Casen Martin added a two-run triple as Hubbard used seven walks to bat around in the inning. Both Shane Sykora and Braydyn Gillham scored twice in the frame.

The Polar Bears’ best chance to score came in the bottom of the fourth inning as Frost used two walks and a hit batsman to load the bases with only one out. But consecutive strikeouts by Hubbard pitcher Colton King ended the threat and the game for the Polar Bears. Edgar Anaya led the Polar Bear offense, going 1-1 and a walk.

Hubbard, the District 13-1A runner-up, improves to 16-4 on the season, while Frost, the third-place finisher in District 14-1A, falls to 10-8. Game 3, if needed, will be played on Saturday. The winner of the series will advance to meet District 16-1A winner Trenton in next week’s area round.

  • GC Baseball/Softball: Mildred names Zamzow new baseball coach; AD Chambliess to coach softball again

         The Mildred Eagles didn’t have to go far to find a new baseball coach to replace Aaron Tidwell, who left the diamond to take the job as the principal of Mildred High School.
        On Saturday, Mildred named softball coach Brett Zamzow its new baseball coach as Zamzow, who was Tidwell's assistant for five years,  moves back to baseball after spending a year coaching softball.
        To complete the move Mildred Athletic Director Billy Dan Chambliess will take over the softball team. Chambliess, who is the head football coach, spent fours years coaching softball before becoming the school’s AD last year. All four of his teams won district titles.
