May 20, 2013

CRANE — Fort Hancock may have ended Forsan's baseball season Saturday, but if you made the trek to Crane to watch the best-of-three, regional quarterfinal series you'd doubtlessly agree it was worth the price of admission.

The Buffaloes roared back after an 8-0 Game One loss on Friday to pummel the Mustangs 11-0 in the second outing Saturday. But in a hard-fought Game Three, Fort Hancock edged Forsan, 9-8 to move on to the Region 1-2A semifinals.

Disappointed with the loss — as any coach would be — Forsan Manager Jason Phillips still enjoyed being a part of such an exciting duel.
