If you have a phobia about the No. 13 and you're a Tigers' fan, Friday was a night to forget.

The Tigers gave up 13 hits, and left 13 runners on base in a humbling 10-1 loss to Waxahachie at Richards Park.

The Tigers (19-10) lost their second game in a row to fall to 9-4 in District 15-4A. They have to make a quick recovery at 2 p.m. Saturday afternoon against Terrell at Price Field.

Waxahachie jumped on Tigers starter Heath Donica for nine hits in the first two innings. The Indians scored three runs in each inning for a 6-1 lead. Donica was a victim of some tough luck and a wandering strike zone.

David Mitchell had a two-run single for Waxahachie for a 3-0 lead in the first inning. Kyle McElroy, who took the win for the Indians, had a two-run single for a 6-1 lead.

The Tigers stranded runners right from the outset. Hunter Melton walked with one out in the top of the first and advanced to second on a passed ball. He was left there.

Brandon Reyes did have a single in the top of the second after Heath Donica's single in the top of the second. Donica scored on an errant throw by Indians right fielder Cameron Phillips to cut the Indians' lead to 3-1.

But the Tigers left the bases loaded in third and fifth innings. For the night the Tigers were 0 for 16 with runners in scoring position.

Gage Curry threw the ball well in 4 2/3 innings of relief, but poor defense led to four unearned runs as the Indians built a 10-1 lead.
