Bulldogs fall short to Wolves 9-6 in back-and-forth game

The Coahoma varsity baseball team took on Colorado City in a home district game Friday night, but fell short 9-6 to the Wolves after losing their lead late in the game.
“Colorado City beat us tonight. They did a good job and we just simply got out-hit,” said head baseball coach Bryan Jacobs. “Although their pitcher did a nice job, we helped him out quite a bit with undisciplined hitting. We were able to play well defensively, but we were just flat out outhit.”
Logan Franklin started the game on the mound for Coahoma. He tossed for two innings, allowed two runs, one hit, walked one and struck out five.
Fletcher Mashburn took the loss for the Bulldogs, as the threw for three innings, gave up seven runs, eleven hits and struck out two.

“Like i've said, its a long season. Enjoy the ups and survive the downs.” said Jacobs. “Tuesday at Jim Ned is a big game for us. We can get right back where we need to be.”

We fought hard and we are still a playoff team. I am proud of them for hanging tough and giving us a fighting chance at the end.”
