The Mansfield Tigers got their baseball season underway Tuesday night when they batted off against the Lamar Warriors. Although the first game of the year ended with a 2-0 loss, the Tigers aren’t letting it rattle their cages.
Senior Hunter Willsey pitched a good game, striking out ten batters in five innings. Sophomore Hayden Henson stepped in to pitch one inning, striking out one batter. And seniors Seth Fudge and Tyler Watkins delivered one hit each for the Tigers.
Head Coach for the Mansfield boys’ team, Bryan McKay, said this about the Tigers first game, “We struggled at the plate all night only having 2 hits. We will have to continue to work hard and get better.”
The Mansfield Tigers will get to face the Hornets at Hackett on Friday, March 1 at 4:30 p.m.
