Brashear's big day buries Brownsboro; Guard win 12-3


 The weather wasn't the only thing that was nearly perfect Tuesday afternoon at Herrington Ball Park at Brook Hill.

The Guard's Seth Brashear went 4-for-4, with 4 RBI and a pair of runs scored to help propel the Guard on a 16-hit attack which resulted in a 12-3, non-district baseball game win over Brownsboro.

Brashear’s, speed accounted for two infield hits, and his double spearheaded a five-run, sixth-inning for the Guard and the 12-3 lead.

Clayton Engle took the win on the mound, striking out five, walking two scattering 10 Bears hits, and allowing all three runs. The right hander, Engle aided his mound cause going 3-4, scored two runs, and added one RBI.

The Bears made a run at the Guard in the fifth inning. However with one run in, Brook Hill’s Engle got a ground out to shortstop, Jonah Gonzales, flipped to second for an out, then first to erase a bases loaded, one-out situation.

The Bears took advantage of two doubles by Cory Davis (2-3, two runs) and a pinch-hit double by Toby Davis to eventually score the three-runs for Brownsboro. Landon Mason also had two hits for the Bears while teammate, Tanner Wilson slapped an RBI-single for the final Bears run, scoring Davis.

Bears right fielder, Will Bailey made a defensive gem for the Bears making a running grab of a well-hit rope, and then doubled off the Brook Hill runner at second to put an end to the Brook Hill sixth-inning rally.

Jacksonville native, Blake Maddox was 1-2, with two walks and scored three runs. Jace Kuechle and Chase Moore were each 1-2, and a run scored.

The Guard (7-6), will travel to play Dallas Christian on Thursday at 2 p.m..

    Jacksonville athletic director/head football coach Chris Taber said that DeJoran “D. J.” Wright, former co-defensive coordinator at Palestine High School, was a logical choice to take over as the Tribe's new defensive coordinator for several reasons — most importantly was Wright's “X's and O's” philosophy.

    One would probably be hard pressed to find any summer youth sports camp with a more streamlined approach than was found at the Jacksonville Fightin' Maiden Basketball camp, which took place this week at the Jacksonville High School Gymnasium.

    “We just asked the young ladies for two things,” Tony Harris, Jacksonville High School head girl's basketball coach, stated on Wednesday. “First, we wanted them to have fun and secondly we wanted them to learn control — to be able to control their eyes, their body and the (opposing) defender.”
