CHS Baseball: Fowler picks up second save in six days for win

Tigers beat Burleson 8-3 as Wolver steals home

Corsicana — Jeremy Fowler keeps getting big outs for the Tigers and with that they keep winning.

Fowler picked up his second save in six days, getting out of a bases loaded jam as Corsicana beat Burleson 8-3 on a blustery Tuesday night at Price Field.

Fowler also has two wins during that stretch as the Tigers have won six of their last seven games and head into Thursday’s tournament in Ennis with a 10-4 record.

“All the bullpens and practices have really helped me,” Fowler said. “It’s built up my confidence and I have my teammates backing me up.”

Fowler, who already has thrown in half of the Tigers’ games, pitched the final 3 1/3 innings. But it was an out to end the fourth inning that keyed the win.

With the bases loaded and the Tigers clinging to a 2-1 lead, Fowler threw a slider and got Burleson’s No. 3 hitter Reid Woods for the final out on a sinking line drive that right fielder Brady Harlan came in on and made a nice catch.

“That was the turning point of the game,” Tigers coach Heath Autrey said. “Jeremy got a big out. Brady made a nice play on that sinking line drive.”

 The Tigers backed up the pitching of Fowler and freshman Trevor Nolen with clutch hits and a steal of home by another freshman, Layton Wolver.

Corsicana scored twice in the bottom of the second. Catcher Zach Rash hit a grounder back up the middle with the bases loaded to give the Tigers an early lead.

The Tigers exploded for four runs in the bottom of the fourth inning. Ben Goodrich had a single up the middle with one out to ignite the inning. Rash was then hit by a pitch with two outs and Hunter Denbow walked to load the bases.

Wolver had a great at-bat, walking on a 3-2 count for a 3-1 lead. Harlan then followed with a single up the middle for a 5-1 lead.

Wolver then made the play of the game, stealing home after getting a great jump and easily making it 6-1.

Ground highlighted a two-run sixth inning with a double to the right center field gap.

  • Back in Action.jpg GC Football: Two-a-days: Back to Action

    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.

  • I7-31-14 Mayper.jpg Navarro Football: Nothing changes for success-minded Bulldogs

    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.''
