Lexington @ Franklin Tourney

by Mike Organ

Lexington lost the first game of the Franklin Tourney to the home team due to a disastrous first inning. Franklin scored 13 runs in the bottom of the first. Coach Finley said he had never had anything like that happen to him in all his years of playing ball and coaching.

Kogan Garrett pitched a complete game as the Eagles got into the win column for the second time this season, as they beat Fairfield 7-4. Garrett also drove home three runs and scored a run as the Eagles won. Lane Turner also drove in two runs in the game against a 3A team.

Franklin moved the game against Anderson/ Shiro to Anderson, Texas, just 30 minutes from Hempstead, and scheduled it for 4 p.m. so the Eagle baseball players could watch their friends play in the area basketball contest. Once again, it was a bad inning that set the tone. It was the second inning when the Eagles allowed all six runs for Anderson Shiro. The Eagles committed two of their three errors in the inning. Each one could have finished the inning and prevented A-S from scoring any runs.

Same story once again, as Lexington lost to Madisonville. Lexington had a 4-3 lead going into the last inning. Madisonville put up a five-spot in the sixth to take the win and eliminate the Eagles from the tourney. Kogan Garrett, Lane Turner, and Chase Hibbeler had two hits each, as the Eagles fell to 2-3 on the season.
