Sometimes a singular play or moment in sports can lead to a team’s demise.
Almost like a gut punch, that one play can be difficult to come back from and creates doubt. The Wylie Pirates baseball team took multiple gut punches, got back up, and nearly pulled off the comeback victory.
In the end, it was Rockwall coming out on top, winning game two of the UIL 6A Region II Quarterfinals 6-3 on Friday, May 21. This was on the heels of a 9-2 victory on May 20 that led to a series sweep.
Through the first two rounds of the postseason, Wylie’s baseball team managed to surrender only two runs. Head coach Beau Snodgrass said before the series that he was worried about Rockwall’s ability to hit the ball. The Yellowjackets took full advantage of the firepower in game one.
By the middle of the first inning in the first matchup against Rockwall, Wylie found itself down four runs. The Yellowjackets had five straight baserunners in the top of the first inning to take a commanding lead and won game one by a final of 9-2.
