District 25-4A

Sweeny 7, Needville 5

NEEDVILLE — The Blue Jays scored a run in five of the seven innings of Tuesday’s District 25-4A contest at Blue Jay Field in Needville, but Sweeny made the most of their scoring chances to grab firm control of the district title with a 7-5 victory.

“We didn’t do a good job of situational hitting,” Needville head coach Chris McKeller said. “When you have runners on base, we have to get a ground ball to push the run across. They did that, plain and simple.

“At the same time, when you leave hitters in hitter’s counts, they are going to have free swings. We need to do a better job of getting ahead of commanding the pitching and getting ahead earlier.”

The Bulldogs’ starting pitcher Garrett Nail bent but didn’t break, allowing two earned runs on 10 hits over six innings. The Blue Jays put pressure on Nail and the Sweeny defense with aggressive base running and successful bunting. But in the end, the Blue Jays left five runners on base that could have been the difference-maker.

Needville’s Kody Gibbs allowed three earned runs on one hit over 2 2/3 innings, striking out six and walking five. Carson Shultz allowed two earned runs on two hits over 2 1/3 innings, striking out four and walking three.

Jon Loewe and Nathan Elster combined to allow one earned run on two hits over two relief innings for the Blue Jays.

Reese Fredrickson was 3-for-3 at the plate including a double, while Bryce Meuth was 2-for-4.

Needville 13, La Marque 0

The Blue Jays set up a winner-take-all game against Sweeny on Tuesday with a shout-out win over La Marque on Friday. Needville’s Bo Spitdowski threw five perfect innings on the mound while striking out 13 without allowing a hit or walk.
