Thanks to crazy weather that cancelled tournaments across Texas, the Frenship baseball team used the dry land of the South Plains to create the Lubbock Winter Scramble Classic. FHS managed four wins in five games during the makeshift tourney. Below are the game recaps:
FLOWER MOUND 7, FRENSHIP 0: Flower Mound pitcher Austin Wallace was dominant on the mound, allowing only one hit and striking out nine Tiger hitters. Christian Kiser led the Tigers at the plate.
FRENSHIP 13, ROUND ROCK CEDAR RIDGE 6: Justyce Bocanegra had three hits and five runs batted in as the Tiger bats were hot all game. The team tallied 14 hits, and a five-run second inning and a five-run fourth inning was plenty offense. Evan Johnson did the damage on the mound to get the win. He allowed four hits and five runs over four innings, striking out three. Bocanegra, Dakota Champagne, Jake Arthus, Mason Weathers, and Michael Hernandez all had multiple hit games.
FRENSHIP 10, WICHITA FALLS RIDER 0: Brock Erculiani threw a no-hitter with eight strikeouts, and the Tiger offense provided the power in a five-inning 10-run rule victory. FHS put up six runs in the fourth inning thanks to RBI hits from Dakota Champagne, Justyce Bocanegra, Mason Weathers, Riley Robinson, and Jacob Gutierrez.
FRENSHIP 17, KELLER 14: FHS pounded out 15 hits and scored seven runs in both the third and fourth innings to win the offensive slugfest versus Keller. Dakota Champagne, Jake Arthus, Peyten Kennard, Colton Brown, Riley Robinson, Gutierrez, and Caeden Jenkins each managed multiple hits for the Tigers. Champagne was 3-for-4.
FRENSHIP 8, CANYON 6: FHS built a six-run lead in the fourth inning and then held off a late Canyon charge for an 8-6 victory on Saturday. Luis Nevarez was the winning pitcher for the Tigers. He went five innings, allowing one run on four hits, striking out four and walking one. Mason Weathers went 3-for-3 at the plate.
The Tigers (5-1) are scheduled to play in the Tournament of Champions this Thursday through Saturday in Midland.
