MINERAL WELLS â€” There is no telling how deep into the playoffs the Big Spring Steers baseball squad could go this season, but if they maintain their current pace, it may be a few more weeks before the fans run out of games to attend.
BSHS Coach Bert Otto said prior to the bi-district series opener that he believed his team could compete with Iowa Park in the playoffs.
He was right.
The Steers took the first game by a score of 5-1 and will head into Game Two with the all-important momentum any coach would like when squaring off against the region's best.
Sophomore Adam Franco allowed only one run in the complete-game win.
As a team, the Steers played a fundamentally sound game, capitalizing on Iowa Park's errors and keeping the pressure on with clutch at-bats.
â€śWe're confident,â€ť Otto said. â€śIt played out the way we pictured it. We were evenly matched, but we made a lot of plays and got a lot timely hits.â€ť
The second game of the series will be played at Lubbock Cooper on Saturday at noon. If the Steers win, they will advance to the area playoff. Should they lose, a third game will follow 30 minutes after the second game concludes.View more articles in:
