CHS BASEBALL: Errors costly at Tascosa

CNJ staff

AMARILLO — Tascosa took advantage of Clovis fielding miscues to score four first-inning runs Tuesday en route to a 7-2 victory over the Wildcats.

The game, originally scheduled for Clovis, was moved to Amarillo because of unplayable conditions at Bell Park.

Tascosa’s first-inning outburst put the Wildcats (6-3) in a hole from which they could not escape.

“All of those runs were unearned,” CHS coach Shane Shallenberger said. “We just didn’t make routine plays.”

Clovis committed a total of five errors in the contest.

Cade Wheeler pitched into the fifth for the Cats, when he gave up two more runs. Jonathan Ware worked the final 1 2/3 innings, allowing another unearned run in the sixth.

The Cats got on the board in the second inning on a solo home run by Ricky Sanchez. They made it 4-2 in the third when Omar Sosa singled, stole second and scored on a double by Parker Wood.

The Cats return to action on Friday with a 4 p.m. single game against Levelland at Bell Park.
