Indian nine fall to Brownsboro, 9-1

Tribe to travel to 'Doches Tue. for loop opener

JACKSONVILLE — The Bears (12-4) led 1-0 going into the third inning. That's when Brownsboro added a three spot to move ahead 4-0.

In the top of the fifth, the Bears tacked three more runs onto the scorebord to put the game out of reach early.

Jacksonville (6-11) plated its lone run of the day in the home half of the fourth. That's when Brayden Rawlinson, Mason Smith and Cash Cleaver notched base hits that were coupled with two Bear errors and a walk.

Rawlinson scorred what turned out to be the Tribe's only run of the afternoon. Jacksonville left the bases loaded to end the frame.

The Indians were unable to get anyone aboard in the final three innings.

Brownsboro's TyTomlinson and Casey Pelton pitched well and kept the Indian hitters guessing for most of the game.

Tomlinson started and worked 5.1 innings and struck out five while walking one. He was the winning pitcher of record.

Pelton fished things up for the Bears and retired each of the five Tribesmen that he faced.

Brett Eckles drew the matinee start on the hill for the Indians. He went 3.1 innings and gave up one run (unearned) on three hits.

Eckles fanned a pair and didn't walk a batter.

Errors compromised the Indians' chances as Jacksonville made four miscues in the game, three of which came in the first two innings.

Shelby Rogers went 2-for-3 with two runs scored to lead the Bears.

Jacksonville will kick off District 16-4A play at 7 p.m. Tuesday by visiting the Dragons of Nacogdoches.
