Bulldogs split with Paris...

Bulldogs split with Paris

Texarkana College moves closer to conference title

Staff photo by Eric J. Shelton Texarkana College’s Matt Lackie delivers a pitch against Paris Junior College during the first game of a doubleheader Sunday at Texas High. The Bulldogs dropped the opener in extra innings but salvaged a split with a 3-1 win in the nightcap.
Texarkana College remains on the brink of its second straight Region XIV East Zone title, but the Bulldogs would probably already be home free if they had taken care of business at their home away from home.

However, after Sunday’s split with Paris Junior College at Texas High, the Bulldogs are only 7-5 at Tiger Field and 11-1 outside Texarkana in the conference race.

Ironically, that one loss was at Paris, when TC’s defense collapsed in the final inning allowing the Dragons to post a come-from-behind win.

Sunday’s Game 1 appeared to be a case of deju vu, PJC again taking advantage of Bulldog mistakes to post a 5-4 win in eight innings. Game 2 was a different story, TC left-hander Nick Forgarty coming within one out of his second straight shutout as the Bulldogs won, 3-1.

“We’re definitely not satisfied with a split; never can be,” said Bulldogs coach Will Bolt, whose team still has at least a 2-game lead over Navarro after the latter was shocked by last-place Lon Morris on Wednesday. “We didn’t swing the bats that well today. We’re just having quality at-bats like we need to. We had a couple of big hits in the first game, but we had opportunities to put them away and we just didn’t do it.”

The Bulldogs (33-15, 18-6) travel to Tyler for a 3 p.m. non-conference, 9-inning game today.

Game 1

Paris 5, Texarkana 4 (8 innings)

Brad Picha’s solo homer on an 0-2 pitch in the bottom of the seventh inning sent the game into overtime, and the Dragons won it on a throwing error in the top of the eighth.

“We were one strike away from winning the game,” said Bolt. “I think Franco (Pace) has given up two hits to left-handed hitters all year long, and he had him (Picha) in a good spot. But he got a breaking ball up, and he put a good swing on it and got the ball up in the wind.”

The Dragons won it in the next inning when closer Colton Reavis gave up a 1-out walk, and Rodney Garcia singled to right one out later. Phil Delisle, running on the play, came all the way around to score when the relay throw was lobbed over the cutoff man’s head.

It was the second straight unearned run for the Dragons, who scored in the sixth on a throwing error, although the tying run was thrown out at the plate.

“It (throw from outfield) was just a lack of focus, plain and simple,” Bolt said.

The Bulldogs staked starter Matt Lackie to a 4-1 lead through four innings. Tin Enriquez singled home a second-inning run, and Austin Atwell doubled in Richard Sanguinetti, who had tripled, to break a 1-1 tie in the third.

TC chased Paris starter Devin Avery from the mound in a 2-run fourth, two errors, a hit batsman and Jake Rogers’ RBI single making it 4-1.

But Paris scored single runs in the next four innings to claim the victory. Submarining right-hander Justin Scharf, who pitched McKinney North to a 2-1 win over state champion Texas High in last year’s playoffs, struck out four over the last two innings to pick up the win.

Sanguinetti, Brittan Diamond and Enriquez each had two of TC’s 10 hits.

Game 2

Texarkana 3, Paris 1

Forgarty pitched in and out of trouble in going the distance in the nightcap, which was switched from nine to seven innings after the opener went extra innings.

Fogarty, a left-hander from Canada, struck out four and walked three, and missed a shutout when a potential double-play grounder was bobbled in the seventh.

“Nick has been very good for us,” Bolt said. “He should have had a shutout today, and he was coming off a shutout last time out. He’s been throwing really well and has been able to mix up three pitches. He got himself into some jams today, but he made some nice pitches to get himself out.”

TC gave Fogarty all the support he needed with a 2-run first inning. Taylor Coleman singled up the middle to start the rally, and raced to third on Sanguinetti’s double down the line in right. Austin Atwell lofted a sacrifice fly to right, the speedy Coleman separating the catcher from the ball with a hard slide, and Jordy Snikeris drove in the second run with a ground ball to second.

Snikeris set up the third run with a hustle double leading off the fourth. After Hunter Allday sacrificed him to third, Diamond singled through the middle to make it 3-0.

Sangunetti was 2 for 2 and Coleman 2 for 3 to lead the Bulldogs, who had six hits. Picha, who was 4 for 4 in the opener, was held hitless and struck out twice against Fogarty. Garcia and Craig Whitehead had two hits each for Paris (26-19, 14-10).

Bolt's Bulldogs Best Blinn (Click for link to video)

BRENHAM- Blinn's run is done at the Region XIV baseball tournament.

The Buccaneers dropped an elimination game to Texarkana, 13-5, Tuesday afternoon at Leroy Dreyer Field.

Bulldog head coach Will Bolt, a former Texas A&M assistant, got a two-run homer from Joaquin Hinojosa in the top of the third inning.

The Dogs put up six runs in the fifth, three of those coming home on a
Jordy Snikeris dinger.

The Bucs struggled defensively in the seven-inning game, six of Texarkana's runs were unearned.

Blinn ends its year at 42-&-16.

San Jacinto pounded Texarkana, 15-3, in the second game of the day to claim the regional title.

Buccaneers’ run comes to a close -- San Jacinto beats Texarkana for tournament title

The Blinn Buccaneer baseball team won three consecutive elimination games to reach the semifinals of the Region 14 Tournament, but on Tuesday the club’s Junior College World Series dreams came to a close with a 13-5 loss to Texarkana.

Blinn, the second seed out of the South Zone, dropped its tournament opener to Navarro 11-3, but bounced back on Sunday and Monday with three consecutive victories, including a 6-4 victory over Navarro Monday night to advance into the semifinals.

But in Tuesday’s contest the Buccaneers were unable to get any traction as Texarkana pounced on every Blinn miscue on the afternoon.

Sophomore left-hander Zach Hardoin (10-2), who went undefeated during the regular season, suffered his second loss of the tournament on two days’ rest. After Blinn’s victory over Navarro on Monday night, Hardoin sought out Blinn (42-17) coach Harvey McIntyre for the opportunity to pitch against Texarkana, but the University of Missouri signee allowed six runs - three earned - in 4 1/3 innings.

Even though Texarkana managed just two hits against Hardoin, the southpaw walked five batters, and Texarkana’s first hit of the day was a two-run home run by Joaquin Hinojosa that gave Texarkana a 4-1 lead.

“When I got him off the mound I told him I appreciate his effort and his will to take the baseball for us,” McIntyre said. “He gave us a great effort.”

Jonathan Delgado entered the game with one out and two on in the fifth after Hardoin walked two batters and immediately ran into trouble as Thomas Watson hit an RBI single and Jordy Snikeras launched a three-run home run that gave Texarkana a 10-2 lead.

Blinn committed just one error in the game, but was plagued with fielding miscues throughout the day. A passed ball on a third strike in the third inning allowed a runner to reach base prior to Hinojosa’s home run, and on two other occasions Blinn outfielders allowed fly balls to fall in front of them after initially running toward the wall. In all, six of Texarkana’s 13 runs were unearned.

Center fielder Trey Johnson was a lone bright spot for the Buccaneers. Johnson hit an RBI single in the first inning to tie the score, then hit a three-run home run in the sixth inning. He had all four of Blinn’s RBIs in the game.

“I think it’s fitting that in Trey Johnson’s last at-bat for us he hit a three-run home run for us,” McIntyre said. “How else would you write that script? When we need a big knock he always seems to produce for us and he did it again today.”

John Stilson earned the win for Texarkana, throwing 5 2/3 innings. He allowed four earned runs on seven hits and four walks, striking out six. After Ty Moore got the final out of the sixth inning, Colton Reavis threw a perfect seventh inning to end the game - and Blinn’s season - via mercy rule.

San Jacinto, which won all four of its tournament games, defeated Texarkana 8-5 Tuesday night to win the tournament championship and advance to the Junior College World Series in Grand Junction, Colo.

Blinn’s roster included 15 sophomores this season, including Jonathan Ogden, Zak Leonhardt, Trenton Irwin, Brian Smith, Brandon Finken, Johnson, Cameron Goff, Broc Haymon, Kendall Korbal, Hardoin, Michael Dixon, Phillip Butler, Eric Staha, Cody Morrison and Mario Eramo.

“This group accomplished so much,” McIntyre said. “Winning 42 baseball games is extremely impressive. Not just what they did from a statistical standpoint, they played hard and with energy. They were a lot of fun to be around, to coach and to watch.”

Blinn will be sending plenty of athletes on to four-year schools next season, including Eramo at Penn State, Hardoin at Missouri, Johnson and Ogden at Mississippi State, Korbal at Texas Christian University, Smith at Sam Houston State, Leonhardt at San Angelo State, Irwin at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi and Morrison at Texas A&M. McIntyre said he also expects Dixon to sign with a four-year program after the Bucs’ right-hander generated plenty of interest with his performance at the conference tournament.

“They have done the right thing from day one,” McIntyre said. “They’re a very unselfish, very committed group. They’re great players, but at the same time they’re just an outstanding group of young men.

“It’s a big group of kids we brought in and it’s a big group of kids we’re losing. They brought more sophomore leadership than any other group we’ve had. Hopefully our young kids can learn just by watching those guys, and they should because it’s a great group to follow up.”

Both Morrison and Johnson were named to the all-Region 14 team.

The Buccaneers will have to replace their starting first baseman, shortstop and outfielders, as well as the bulk of their starting pitchers next season.

“To me it’s trying to replace Trey Johnson, Cody Morrison, Mario Eramo and Zak Leonhardt in the lineup, and Ogden’s presence in the infield, but at the same time we’ve got a great group of freshmen who will step right in and do a great job for us next year as sophomores.”

BRENHAM, Texas—It would seem difficult to take something positive from a 15-3 loss, but Texarkana College coach Will Bolt did just that after his team was eliminated by seventh-ranked San Jacinto College Tuesday in the Region XIV baseball finals at Blinn College’s Leroy Dryer Field.

“The way I see it, we had two bad innings against San Jac in both games we played them,” Bolt said. “In the first game we had a chance to put them on the ropes early, and we let them take the momentum away from us. The same thing happened today. If we had managed to stay in the winner’s bracket, things might have been different.”

The Bulldogs, who run-ruled host Blinn College, 13-5, earlier in the day to earn a second shot at San Jacinto, finished the season at 40-15. The Gators take a 43-9 record to the JUCO World Series in Grand Junction, Colo., in two weeks.

San Jacinto raked six Texarkana pitchers for 19 hits in the game.

“We just totally ran out of gas in the second game,” Bolt said. “When you run tired arms out there against a team like San Jac, they’ll make you pay.”

The Bulldogs lost shortstop Trey Buck to a possible fractured wrist when he collided with the Gators first baseman after bunting. Buck played a key role in the win over Blinn.

The Bulldogs managed nine hits, including a double and single by John Stilson, who replaced Buck at shortstop. Jake Rogers had a pair of singles and drove in a run.

“We had a good season, winning the conference championship,” Bolt said. “We talked all year about going to Grand Junction, and we fell just one game short. We’ve got 14 freshmen coming back, and hopefully the experience they got here will help us get back.”

Texarkana’s 10-hit attack in the early game included home runs by Joaquin Hinojosa and Jordy Snikeris.

Pitching on two days rest, John Stilson improved to 12-1 on the season, pitching 5 2/3 innings and throwing 103 pitches. He walked four and struck out six, while yielding four earned runs. Ty Moore allowed a run before retiring the last batter in the sixth, and Colton Reavis came on to pitch a 1-2-3 seventh.

Leadoff batter Trey Buck was a thorn in the Buccaneers’ sides, drawing three walks, stealing three bases and scoring three runs.

The Bulldogs broke a 3-all tie with three runs in the third inning and never trailed after that. Buck drew a 1-out walk, stole second, and one out later Brian Ellis reached on a third-strike wild pitch. Buck eventually scored on a balk by losing pitcher Zach Hardoin (10-2), and Ellis rode home on Hinojosa’s team-leading 11th home run over the center field wall.

After Blinn pulled within 4-2 with a run in the fourth inning, the Bulldogs put it out of reach in the fifth. Buck and Ellis drew walks and pulled off a double steal after Hardoin was replaced by Jonathan Delgado.

Buck scored as Hinojosa grounded out to shortstop, and after David Allday was hit by a pitch, Thomas Watson singled, driving in Ellis. Hot-hitting Lance Marvel, who was 3 for 4 with two runs batted in, then drove in Allday with a single. Snikeris’ 2-run homer capped the 5-run inning.

Marvel, Buck and Austin Atwell had RBI singles in the seventh as the Bulldogs ended the game on the run-rule.

Watson’s double and two singles led TC at the plate. Watson had a double and single for the Bulldogs (40-14).
