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.

  • 4-16-14NVSBMoerbe slides.jpg Navarro Softball: Bulldogs get ranked, split with Paris

    Minutes after Navarro split a doubleheader with Paris on Wednesday, Navarro softball Coach Jessica Karenke was told her Bulldogs had just been nationally ranked and are now No. 16 in the NJCAA national softball poll.
    She had no idea.
    And she didn't care.
    Karenke is worried about what happens on the diamond, and she had some concerns after Navarro made four errors in the second game that opened the door for Paris to pull off a 7-2 win after the Bulldogs and Ciara Luna controlled the first game with a 4-1 win.

    Lindale has been poison to Corsicana all year.
    The Eagles won a bizarre game in Lindale to keep the Tigers out of the football playoffs and ruined the boys basketball season with two gut-wrenching wins in the final week of the season.
    They did it again Tuesday, beating the Tigers 4-0 at Price Field to take over second place in the District 16-4A race.
    Lindale (6-2) had one big inning to hand Corsicana (5-3) its second loss in a row.

  • I4-15-14Kellysigns.jpg GC Volleyball: Kerens' Kelly signs with Paris Junior College

    She prayed about it. She lost sleep about it. And she prayed about it some more.
    That's just a glimpse of what Marqueshia Kelly went through before deciding to turn down a half dozen basketball scholarships and accept a scholarship to play volleyball at Paris Junior College.
    The journey might have been a little sleepless, but in the end it wasn't that tough for Kelly, who is a multi-sport star at Kerens.
    “I followed my heart,'' she said on Tuesday just moments after signing a letter-of-intent to play volleyball at Paris in front of family, coaches and friends.
