STOCKDALE -- As part of the ongoing struggle for athletic supremacy and bragging rights, last week turned out to be a wash for Poth and Stockdale, as the schools split games on the diamonds. While the Pirettes were able to take down the Lady Brahmas in a district softball game, the guys later returned the favor, as the Brahmas defeated the Pirates 14-4 in a district baseball game.

Tristan Marquez was on the hill to start the game for Stockdale, but the Pirates came out ready to play, as Poth scratched 1 run in the top of the first. The Brahmas quickly got the run back in the bottom of the inning, and tacked on another 3 for good measure. Poth didn’t panic, though, and the Pirates began clawing back at the lead with another run in the top of the second, making it a 4-2 game.

Poth held Stockdale from scoring in the bottom of the second, and neither team was able to get anything going in the third. Things changed in the fourth, however.

In the top of four, the Pirates got things going and scored a pair of runs to tie the game at 4-all. It appeared to those in attendance that the momentum was with the Pirates, but Stockdale was having no part of it. The Brahmas not only retook the lead, but scored a total of 3 runs in the inning to retake the lead at 7-4.

Poth wasn’t able to swing things back its way in the top of the fifth, and things quickly went from bad to worse in the bottom of the inning, as Stockdale brought home 6 runs for a 13-4 advantage. After Poth was unable to score in the top of the sixth, a Brahma run in the bottom half of the frame stopped the game at 14-4.

Marquez earned the win with four innings of work and a total of six strikeouts. Bandy Larrison came on in relief and grabbed the save after striking out two and walking two. Mikey Opela led the Brahmas on offense with four hits, four stolen bases, 2 runs, and an RBI.
