COOPER/MAGNOLIA SHUT DOWN CUBETTES, 7-0

Flash ad ID:9

The Cubettes’ bats were as cold as the blustery weather Wednesday night at Alumni Field as they fell to Magnolia, 7-0 in District 18/4A play.

The Brenham (9-8/2-4) hitters managed just three hits and struck out 12 times in their first district loss in their last three games.

Magnolia jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning.  Haley Garza’s two-out two-run double got the Lady Bulldogs on the board.

The game then settled into a tightly fought pitchers’ duel between Cubette starter Macie Becker and Magnolia’s Cori Cooper.

Over the next four innings, Becker held the Lady Bulldogs scoreless on just three hits and struck out four.  Meanwhile, Cooper dominated the Cubette hitters, allowing just one single by Ashley Hodde and striking out eight over the first four innings.

Magnolia (5-1 in 18/4A) broke it open in the sixth with five runs on four hits and two walks off Becker who seemed to run out of gas.  Megan Morris pitched the final inning-and-two-thirds.

The inning was also marred by a controversial call at third base where two Magnolia runners were on the base at the same time.  The Cubettes tagged the runners which should have led to an out, but the umpires ruled obstruction occurred prior to the play and allowed the second runner to return to second base.

That ruling led to a lengthy discussion between Cubettes’ coach Jamie Maurer and the men in blue.

The Cubettes’ Brette Kohring provided the only offense for the Cubettes with two hits; a single and double.

Brenham is off for the rest of spring break.  They’ll be back in action next Tuesday when they travel to Huntsville to face the Lady Hornets.  First pitch is at 7:00 with the pre-game at 6:40 on KWH and www.kwhi.com.

Also in 18/4A play last night:  Magnolia West (6-1) 14  Rudder (0-6) 6.
