SCHERTZ -- After finishing fourth in District 28-2A to grab the final playoff position, the Stockdale Brahma baseball team began postseason play last Thursday evening in a best-of-three series with the Comfort Bobcats.

In the first game, Comfort jumped out to a 2-0 lead after the first inning. The Brahmas came back to score a run in the top of the fourth, but then gave the run back in the bottom of the frame, as Comfort assumed a 3-1 advantage.

The game slipped further away from the Brahmas in the fifth inning, as the Bobcats scored 3 more runs for a 6-1 lead. Stockdale came back in the top of the sixth to score 1 run, but that was as close as they could get, and fell by the final score of 6-2.

With Comfort leading the series by a game, the teams returned to Schertz on May 2 for game two. Things started much the same as in the first game, as Comfort led 2-0 heading into the second inning. Stockdale got a run in the second to make it a 2-1 game, but Comfort exploded in the third inning for 13 runs. The Bobcats added another run in the fourth.

Stockdale put together a good effort in the fourth inning, scoring 4 runs for the Brahmas. Neither team scored in the fifth, and the game was called early by virtue of the mercy rule.

The Brahmas were disappointed to see their season end in the first round, but Head Coach Roland Salinas put things into perspective.

“[I am] proud of our accomplishments as a group,” he said. “The kids worked hard and represented Stockdale well.”

Congratulations to the Brahmas on another strong baseball season in an extremely competitive district.
