BROWNSBORO -- Brownsboro's fans got to see a blowout Tuesday. There's no doubt Van took the suspense out of the game by committing error after error.
At the end of the day, however, it didn't so much matter that Van's infield committed six errors. Nor that the battery allowed four pitches to hit the backstop with six runners on base in a 7-0 district-opening decision.
MARSHALL -- The University Interscholastic League's newly initiated 110-pitch limit is solely meant to save athletes from a wide array of arm injuries, but Texas High's 3-2 win Tuesday at Marshall revealed it can also be an exciting game within the game.
Tigers starting pitcher Colby Adkins hit the limit amid inducing the winning out with two Mavericks runners in scoring position.
Marshall would have won the game, tied the game or had the bases loaded for Texas A&M catcher signee Cam Haller against a cold pitcher if Adkins failed to get an out against the final batter the UIL allowed him.
HENDERSON -- Carthage catcher Gunner Capps was pretty much the alpha and the omega against Henderson's effort to pull off a statement win Wednesday in the District 16-4A opener.
Capps drove in the game-tying run in the third inning to dig the Bulldogs out of an early two-run hole, stopped the Lions' best chance to regain control in the latter innings and then scored the go-ahead run in the sixth toward a 4-2 road victory for TxHighSchoolBaseball.com's 24th-ranked Class 4A team.
