TC drops opener, 4-1

PARIS, Texas—Texarkana College sophomore Zach Fowler sailed into the sixth inning with a 1-0 lead only to see Paris score four runs—two unearned—and beat the Bulldogs in Wednesday’s opener at Hub Hollis Field, 4-1.

Texarkana (20-9, 5-4) was leading the nightcap 8-2 going to the fifth inning when the game was stopped because of lightning and rain. The game will be completed at the end of the regular-season.

“Zach pitched well enough to win, but their pitcher matched him,” Texarkana coach Will Bolt said. “We just didn’t do enough offensively.”

Fowler scattered five hits, walked two and struck out seven in six innings. Trey Buck scored TC’s only run in the first after reaching on a single and moving all the way to third on two wild pitches. He scored on Austin Atwell’s grounder.

The Bulldogs got off to a good start in the second game when Texas High alumnus David Allday smashed a 3-run homer. Allday also had a run-scoring single later in the game. Joaquin Hinososa drove in two runs with a double and two singles, while Brian Ellis added a pair of singles.

Freshman Tanner Bailey was on the mound for Texarkana. The Bulldogs travel to Angelina on Saturday.

Paris is 23-9 on the season and 5-4 in conference.

Fowler, Bailey spur TC sweep...

Fowler, Bailey spur TC sweep

MOUNT PLEASANT, Texas—Zach Fowler and Tanner Bailey came up with outstanding pitching performances Wednesday when Texarkana College needed them most.

Losers of three of their first Region XIV East Conference starts, the Bulldogs needed a sweep of the doubleheader at Northeast Texas Community College, and got just that.

Fowler went six innings in 7-inning opener, and the Bulldogs scored all their runs in the first inning of the 5-2 victory. Bailey completed eight innings in the 9-inning nightcap, won by TC, 4-1.

Fowler (5-1) scattered five hits, struck out five and walked two in picking up his second straight conference win. Colton Reavis retired all three batters he faced in the seventh.

The Bulldogs gave Fowler all the support he needed in the first inning. Trey Buck reached on an error against starter and loser Jake Atwell, and a single by Austin Atwell put runners at the corners.

Joaquin Hinojosa’s sacrifice fly plated Buck, and Gip Hendrix followed with a double. Atwell, who had stolen second base, stopped at third when it appeared Hendrix’s drive would be caught. David Allday singled through the middle to drive in Atwell, but Hendrix was thrown out at the plate.

After Lance Marvell walked, Ian Gilley doubled to left, driving in two runs, and he scored on a single by Brian Ellis.

Atwell and Ellis were the only Bulldogs with two hits.

In the second game, Bailey (5-1) gave up just two hits, struck out six and walked three, the only run coming on a home run by Cody Causey in the third inning. Hinojosa earned a save in the ninth by striking out the side on 11 pitches.

Buck had a pair of doubles in four at-bats and had two of TC’s seven stolen bases in the game. Jordy Snikeris had two hits and drove in two runs, Gilley stroked a solo homer, his second of the season, and Allday had a double.

“We saw their top two guys, both were left-handed, and the second (Henry Garcia) was really good,” said TC coach Will Bolt. “We really needed these two wins, and if we can get a split or sweep in Bossier City Saturday, we’ll be in good shape because most of our April games will be at home.”

The Bulldogs (18-8, 3-3) play their fourth conference twin bill on the road Saturday, starting at 1 p.m.

The start of Wednesday’s doubleheader at NTCC was pushed back to 4 p.m.
