Jacksonville was looking to close out the non-conference portion of its schedule with a moral-boosting win on Friday when the Tribe played host to Mabank in a noon-time game at Summer Norman Field.
Unfortunately, the Panthers had other ideas.
Mabank (8-5) batters had success against a trio of Tribe hurlers, with the Panthers downing the Tribe, 12-4.
Mabank out hit Jacksonville 13-8. The Panthers were aslo aided by six free passes issued by Jacksonville pitchers.
Mabank plated two runs off of Tribe starter, Mason Smith, in the top of the first inning, as the Panthers led from start to finish in this one.
Jacksonville (5-9-1) scored its first run in the home half of the opening segment when Michael Sexton laced a single up the middle that scored Brayden Rawlinson from third base. Rawlinson, who went 3 for 5 on the day, scored and drove in two runs for the Tribe.
Rawlinson got aboard on a double into the gap in left center and moved over to third on a wild pitch.
Mabank then added three runs in the third, which chased Smith from the hill.
The Indians got two more runs in the fourth inning.
Bryce Cundieff drew a one-out walk and moved into scoring position when Braydon Horn reached on an infield error.
Rawlinson then hit a sharp single to center that scored both Cundieff and Horn while trimming the Panther advantage to 5-3.
The Panthers went on to add two runs in the fifth, a lone tally in the sixth and a four spot in the last segment.
After Rawlinson led off the seventh with a base hit to left, Jacksonville was eventually able to add one run in the last inning.
Rawlinson stole second, moved over to third on a wild pitch, and motored into home when Guadalupe Muniz stroked a two-out base hit into left field.
