Cougar nine move even in district


Brazos’ baseball squad grabbed a pair of district wins to move their record within District 28-2A to an even 4-4 with big contributions from both the plate and mound.

In a loss to Weimar on March 26, Dalton Herrera supplied a steal of home plate to even the game at five but that was the last Cougar run that was registered. Luke Demny finished 3-for-4 batting with a trio of singles and pair of RBI.

Brazos responded with a 10-0 win over Moulton where Kaden Kniep supplied the five-inning shutout while also going 2-for-3 from the plate with a pair of singles and RBI each.

The Cougars grabbed a second in a row over Fayetteville, 6-3, where Kolton Marek surrendered only two earned runs over five innings.

Last Friday’s contest with Shiner went to the visitors, 6-3, and bumped Brazos’ overall record to 7-8-1 and the district mark to 4-4.

Kniep turned in another solid pitching performance while the bats went quietly, but on purpose.

Head coach Bradley Norris cited some good at-bats ending in successful bunts while being complemented by solid defense for most of the game.

Herrera supplied a 2-for-4 effort with a single and triple while Marek secured a walk and single to finish 1 for 3.
