SAN ANTONIO -- By virtue of a 1-run loss in a single-game playoff with the Kenedy Lions, the Falls City Beaver baseball team has been eliminated from the playoffs.

The teams squared off at Southside High School, and Kenedy had the first at- bat. While the Lions were unable to score in the first, the Beavers got on the board when senior Justin Twine homered over the center- field fence for a 1-0 lead.

The advantage held until the top of the fourth inning, when a trio of walks helped the Lions to a run. The Beavers came back in the bottom of the frame to score 2 runs, though, and assumed a 3-1 advantage.

Devon Lyssy got things started with a single to center field, and Matthew Stulting came in to run for Lyssy. Austen Camber put the ball in play and reached second on a fielding error, while Stulting ran around to score. Camber stole third, and then scampered home on a passed ball for a 3-1 Beaver lead.

The top of the sixth inning was big for the Lions. Twine eventually struck out the side, but not before a number of walks and a well-timed triple to center field allowed the Lions to score 4 runs and take a 5-3 lead in the game.

The score remained 5-3 until the bottom of the seventh inning as Falls City made one final effort for a win.

Gabe Jimerson started things off with an infield single, and moved over to second on an error. Twine was given an intentional walk to first, and Dean Gaskamp laid down a good bunt to load the bases. Just when things were looking good for the Beavers, everything changed. A pair of strikeouts dimmed the hopes for Falls City, but Mitch Lyssy drew a walk to Jimerson. Twine moved over to third as the tying run, but only one out remained. Kenedy eventually struck out the side, and Falls City left the winning run on second.

The season is over for the Beavers, but Falls City found a great deal of success in 2014. The team not only won a district title, it picked up an area championship along the way, and finished the season with an impressive record of 15-3 overall.
