Tigers earn hard fought win in a wet and wild affair against Pirates

The Mathis Pirates were not the only thing Goliad would battle against on Thursday afternoon.

Bad weather and field conditions would provide a formidable opponent for the Tiger as would Mathis. 

Goliad took the lead late in the game in a 4-1 victory over the Pirates. The game was tied at one with the Tigers batting in the bottom of the sixth when an error scored one run for Goliad for the go ahead lead.

Colby Rosenquest was the winning pitcher for Goliad. The righthander surrendered one run on three hits over six innings, striking out six. Andrew Alonzo threw one inning in relief out of the bullpen to secure the save for the Tigers. 

Ryder Reyes, Kolton Duval, and Alonzo each managed one hit to lead Goliad’s offensive attack on the night. 

:Thank you to our veterans and military members who attended tonight’s game for our Military Appreciation Night,” added coach Anthony Quintanilla. “It was a great way to kick off the afternoon with honoring those who served and protected the freedoms of our nation.”

Goliad baseball finished the first round of district play going 4-1 and sitting in second place one game behind Taft. The Tigers will travel to Taft to battle the Greyhound’s for a shot of sharing the district title today. “I hope to see everyone out for this big time matchup,” Quintanilla said.

JV gets the nightcap, win to wrap things up against the Pirates 

Goliad Junior Varsity Tigers claimed a 6-3 victory, despite a big push by Mathis JV in the fourth inning.

Goliad Junior Varsity Tigers got things started in the first inning with one run scored when Tracer Schendel singled.

DAdrian Anderson, Schendel, Tristen Schmidt, Payton Foss, Ty Marek, Bryton Stoebner and Conner Maroney each collected one hit to lead the JV team. The JV Tigers were sure-handed in the field and didn't commit a single error.

Schendel had the most chances in the field with six and would have a great caught stealing putout at home. 

“Excellent job for the JV Tigers keep up the great work and make the second round your revenge tour,” Quintanilla said.
