PFLUGERVILLE -- In a single-game baseball playoff for the area championship, the Falls City Beavers held on to a 9-run lead that was threatened late in the game, and defeated Charlotte by the final score of 9-7.

After three and a half scoreless innings of play last Friday night at Pflugerville Connally High School, the Beavers got things cranked up in the bottom of the fourth. Devon Lyssy singled to center field to start things off, and Matthew Stulting came in to run. Mitch Lyssy then drew a walk, and Stulting moved over to second. Austen Camber took the first pitch sent his way and drove it into left field to score Stulting. Cody Houdman came to the plate, and Mitch Lyssy stole third to put runners at the corners. A pitch then hit Houdmann, and Falls City had the bases loaded.

Zach Jimerson drove a single into right field, and Mitch Lyssy and Camber each came around to score for a 3-0 lead. Zach was safe at first, and Houdmann made his way to third.

Things got worse for Charlotte from there, as Zach stole second and Houdmann scored for a 4-0 lead. Zach then moved to third on a balk by the pitcher, and Gabe Jimerson drew a walk to once again put runners on the corners. Justin Twine then cranked a home run over the left-field fence to score Zach, Gabe, and himself, giving the Beavers a 7-0 lead.

Dean Gaskamp kept things going as he hit an infield single, and Jonathan Sekula drove one deep into center field for a triple that scored Gaskamp. Sekula scampered home on a pitch while Devon Lyssy stood at the plate. Lyssy ripped a single to reach base safely, and the score stood at 9-0 in favor of Falls City.

Charlotte got out of the inning shortly thereafter, but a lot of damage had been done. To their credit, the Trojans did not give up on the game, and roared back in the top of the fifth to score 5 runs. Charlotte added a 6th run in the sixth inning, and threatened in the top of the seventh with a little two-out rally that yielded run No. 7. Twine struck out his sixth batter of the night to end the game, and Falls City celebrated a 9-7 victory.

The Beavers will now advance to the region quarterfinals, where they will face the Kenedy Lions. Although Falls City defeated Kenedy twice during district play, a single run decided both games. With both teams looking to advance to the region semifinals, it’s sure to be another great battle.

Falls City will play Kenedy on Friday, May 16, at 7:30 p.m. at Southside High School.
