Bears to play for district title in Pleasanton


Just one game remains in the Bear baseball team’s regular season, but it is a big one, as La Vernia and Pleasanton battle for the district title.

The Bears are currently sitting in first with an unblemished district record. Just one game behind them is Pleasanton, though, and the Eagles want a slice of that championship pie. An Eagle win would divvy up the top spot, and make the playoff seeding a bit more complicated, while a Bear win gives La Vernia the outright championship.

When the Bears and Eagles last met, La Vernia earned a 4-1 victory. The Bears scratched a run in the third inning, two in the fourth, and one in the fifth, while Pleasanton scored its lone run in the top of the fifth inning. The Bears didn’t dominate by any means, but some timely hits, smart base running, and a couple of errors helped the Bears to victory. Colby Skelton also pitched well for five innings to fan seven batters and pick up the win.

The final showdown of the regular season will be played in Pleasanton, this Friday, April 25, beginning at 7 p.m. Win or lose, the Bears will be moving on to the playoffs. But rest assured, the Bears aren’t looking any farther ahead than Pleasanton and a district championship.
