Tigers look to snap two-game losing streak

COMMERCE — Coupled with cold bats and rough pitching performances, the Commerce High School baseball team lost two in a row to Grand Saline and Edgewood.

Even with his three doubles on three hits, Ramon Mojica was unable to lead the Commerce High School baseball team to victory in a 6-3 loss against Grand Saline on March 22.

Sam Wells pitched a complete game and struck out eight batters.

Senior Buck Wilson also had a hot bat on the night, going two out of three, with one triple.

In the March 26 game at Edgewood, the Edgewood bats honed in on Mojica’s pitching, knocking in 14 runs in the first three innings of the game   before going on to win 15-4.

Mojica’s pitching performance was sub par, but the Tigers fielding didn’t help. With 10 errors of the night, eight of the 14 runs scored were unearned.

Wells made up for a hitless game against Grand Saline with a double that knocked in two runs for the Tigers.

The Tigers face a formidable team in the Quitman Bulldogs at home tonight at 7 p.m.

The Bulldogs are currently 10-3, with a 4-1 district record, with their only loss an 8-5 one at Edgewood last week.
