On Thursday the Rams traveled down State Champions Parkway to Cowboy Field to face Coppell in game 1 of a Thur/Fri series. Sr Elias Munoz took the mound for the Rams and struggled in the first 2 innings giving up 6 runs on 7 hits which proved to be plenty for the Cowboys as they yielded only a single hit, a double, to Soph Cole Hill in the top of the 7th inning for a 6-0 win.
On Friday the Rams hosted Coppell at Berkner Ram Ballpark. Sr Garrett Randall stepped up to face the Cowboys and for 5 innings kept them scoreless with the game tied at 0. The Rams fought the Cowboys hard and both teams had to deal with nature’s resolve and 2 lightning delays. The Rams posted a single run in the bottom of the 5th inning when Soph Cole Hill led off reaching on an error by the third baseman. Jr Nick McLemore followed with a single and Jr Edwin Silguero laid down a sacrifice bunt to move them to 2nd & 3rd base with 1 out. Soph Alexis Munoz then battled an 8-pitch at bat that finished with a single up the middle that would plate Hill but see McLemore out at the plate trying to follow him home. With a 1-0 lead the Rams would allow a single Coppell run when nature decided to intervene for a third time. With both coaches agreeing that enough was enough the game would see itself finished on Saturday. As play resumed Coppell plated 5 additional runs to finish the top of the 6th inning and then closed out the 7th inning and game two 6-1.
