The Lavaca Golden Arrows completely defanged the Magazine Rattlers tonight by a score of 16-1. The Arrows cut loose in the second inning scoring 13. Magazine used 4 pitchers and gave up 16 runs on 9 hits. Offensively, Dylan Ellison and Jimmy Hall batted 1000, while Ellison and Colby Clunn lead the team in scoring with 3 runs a piece. Tyler Armistead was the RBI leader tonight with 3 on a triple hit to left field. All 9 of the Arrow starters found their way on the base path and all but one crossed the plate at least once.
On the mound for the Arrows was senior Trey Castor. Castor was strong giving up 1 run on 2 hits. Castor only faced 12 batters, due to the “mercy rule”. Of the 12 he faced, Castor retired 5 of them at the plate. Castor was backed up by solid defense by Jimmy Hall, Kaw-Liga Brewer and Jager Wagner, who all made good plays in the field.
Next up the Golden Arrows will be heading to Hackett where they will look to sting the Hornets. The game is scheduled for tomorrow, Thursday the 4th at 4:30. There is a chance of wet weather in the forecast. In the event that the fields are not playable, this game will be played on Friday the 5th. Hope to see you there.
