Errors lead to Mineola win

Posted

The Mineola Yellowjackets took advantage of eight Quitman errors to win a five inning 10-0  District 13-3A baseball contest last Tuesday.

Three Bulldog pitchers held Mineola to just two hits while Jacket pitcher Spencer Joyner held Quitman to three hits in five innings, striking out five and walking one. Quitman pitchers were Landon Richey, Ford Tannebaum and Aiden Corrior.

Mineola got two runs in the bottom of the first inning after the first two Jacket batters struck out. Cason Davis drew a walk and was batted in on a hit by Caleb Gant. Gant scored to make it 2-0.

The Jackets scored one run in the third inning making it 3-0 and then broke the game open in the bottom of the fourth inning with four runs, giving them a 7-0 lead. Errors and a passed ball by Quitman led to the Jackets’ four runs.

In the bottom of the fifth inning, Conner Gibson was hit by a pitch and advanced to second on a passed ball, followed by a walk to Joyner.

Thomas Hooten bunted and reached first base on a Quitman error. The Jackets went on to score three runs, making it the 10-0 final score. 

The Jackets ran the base paths effectively with nine stolen bases. Gant had four stolen bases to lead Mineola. The Jackets were also flawless on defense with no errors.

Mount Vernon 4, Mineola 0

Mineola was shut out 4-0 on a complete game two-hitter against Mount Vernon Friday.

Braydon Alley and Conner Gibson recorded the Mineola hits.

Kaden Bell threw six innings for the Yellowjackets, striking out one.

Mount Vernon took advantage of just three hits and an error to post two runs each in the first and third innings.
