Bears win two out of three


It may not have gone exactly as they had hoped, but the Bear baseball team won two out of three games last week in La Grange.

The Bears started things off on March 12 by facing Klein Forest. The teams were scoreless during the first inning, but La Vernia changed that in the second. Cole Lowry started things off with a leadoff double to left field. He then moved over to third on a passed ball, and scored when Tristan Gardner safely reached first after a sharply hit ball toward the short stop. Klein Forest managed to retire the side shortly thereafter, but La Vernia was on top 1-0.

The Bears added to the board in the fourth inning, with a 3-run effort. Christian Bruce started things off with a homerun. Lowry drew a walk to reach. Justus Parker singled to left field, and Austin Starks drew a walk. With the bases loaded, Kyle Kincaid drew a walk that scored Lowry. Parker later stole home to make it a 4-0 game.

The Bears went on to add 5 runs in the fifth inning and another 2 runs in the sixth. After retiring the side in the bottom of the sixth inning, the Bears celebrated an 11-0 win.

Giddings was the next team up for La Vernia, but the Bears had a little trouble with the Buffaloes. Giddings scored 2 runs in the bottom of the first inning, and another 5 runs in the fourth inning. The Buffaloes tacked on 2 runs in the sixth to make it a 9-0 game heading into the top of the seventh inning.

The Bears managed to get on the board with a pair of runs. Jacob Prater singled to start things off, and then Karsten Holm drew a walk to put runners on first and second. Trey Jackson signed to center to score Prater. Parker then ripped a double into left to score Holm. In the end, however, it was a 9-2 loss.

The Bears final game of spring break came against Bellville, and La Vernia walked away with the win.

After two and a half scoreless innings, the Bears got on the board in the bottom of the third. Colton Parrish ripped a two-out triple into center field, and then Parker drove him home with a double into left. After three innings, it was La Vernia on top, 1-0.

Starks hit a two-out double in the bottom of the fourth inning. Kincaid then singled into left to score Starks for a 2-0 lead.

Bellville came back to tie the game with a pair of runs in the fifth. The Bears tried to respond in the bottom of the frame, but were unable to score.

The bats came alive in the bottom of the sixth inning, though, as La Vernia scored 3 runs. Lowry started things off with a double into center, and Starks singled to move Lowry to third. Lowry then scored on a passed ball, and Starks moved over to second. Kincaid grounded out, but moved Starks over to third. Chance Carrillo then singled into centerfield to score Starks. Colby Skelton singled into left to move Carrillo into scoring position. Parrish then ripped a double to score Carrillo. The side was eventually retired, but not before La Vernia took a 5-2 advantage.

Bellville went three-up, three-down in the top of the seventh, and the game was called for the Bears.

La Vernia was set to return to district play this week, as the Bears hosted Cuero on March 17, and are set to be in Wimberley Friday, March 20, to take on the Texans. Both games were scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.
