Tovar Tussle parts I & II

Your Berkner Rams traveled to RHS on Tuesday for part I of the 2018 edition of the Tovar Tussle. Berkner would bookend a single run in the first with 2 runs in the seventh but Richardson would score 5 in the second proving to be plenty in a 6-3 defeat for the Rams.

On Friday the Rams hosted RHS at Berkner Ram Ballpark and both teams treated their fans to free baseball as they would go 3 extras to play 10 complete innings. The Eagles initiated the scoring plating single runs in the second and third innings. The Rams responded with 2 runs of their own in the fourth when only a single hit from Soph Cole Hill combined with a dropped third strike and 2 walks would score Hill and Junior Nick McLemore. The 2-2 tie would stand until the seventh when the Eagles scored 2 additional runs pressuring Berkner’s last 3 outs. Stepping in and stepping up were Senior Elias Munoz and Soph Bryce Drayton who led off the bottom of the seventh with back to back singles. Senior Garrett Randall then induced a 4-pitch walk to load the bases. Junior Nick McLemore hit into a fielder’s choice scoring Munoz and Junior Edwin Silguero reached on error scoring Drayton. Both teams would put up 0’s in the eighth & ninth innings. Richardson struck in the tenth with 2 additional runs. Berkner responded when Senior Elias Munoz reached base on an error. With 2 outs Soph Cole Hill doubled to score Munoz and pull the Rams to within a single run. Unfortunately the scoring would stop there while Hill would be left stranded at second and the Rams would drop the game 6-5.
