GREENWOOD â€” Big Spring baseball was also on the receiving end of a loss on the road Tuesday, as the Rangers held on for a 5-2 win over the Steers, throwing a monkey wrench in Head Coach Bert Otto's plan to nab the No. 2 seed out of District 4-3A, which is more desirable than a No. 3 spot due to the strength of potential opponents.
In the top of the first inning, Karsten Knudson and Haegan Rodriguez led off the game with back-to-back singles, then Knudson scored a run on a sacrifice fly by Gunnar Kennedy to put the Steers up 1-0.
More often than not, when you give up 10 runs in a baseball game it's bad news, but that wasn't the case for Howard College on Tuesday. The Hawks were smacking the ball around and won 16-10, with sophomore Reed Seeley belting a grand slam to help key the win.
Howard also got a little â€” OK, a lot â€” of help from mistakes on the part of the Westerners, who recorded six errors in the high-scoring affair.
Made up your mind over who to vote for in the May 11 city council and school board elections?
If not, plan on attending Thursday's Meet the Candidates Forum, scheduled for a 6 p.m. start in the Hall Center for the Arts.
The format will be simple.
â€śEach candiate will be allowed to speak for five minutes,â€ť said Debbye ValVerde, Chamber executive director. â€śThis will not be a question and answer forum.â€ť
However, she added that voters will be able to meet one-on-one with candidates after the forum and ask questions at that time.
