Tigers Slip By Post

Published March 22, 2012 @ 8:08 p.m.

SLATON - The Antelopes were tied with the Slaton Tigers going into the seventh and final inning when Slaton was able to muster a run in the bottom frame to win the District 3-2A game, 9-8, this past Tuesday.

The Lopes took the lead in the fifth inning 6-5 and added two more in the sixth then the Tigers tied the game at 8 by the end of the inning.

Seniors Jacob Perez and Matt Soto produced at the plate for Post.  Perez was three-for-three and Soto two-for-four.  Sophmore Campbell Kirkpatrick had a crucial hit late in the game for two RBIs.

Post was trying to rebound from a loss at Forsan, 11-1, a week earlier.

The Lopes are now 1-2 in district play after the Slaton game and 3-9 for the season.

The junior varsity Antelopes picked up a road wins at Forsan on March 13 and at Slaton behind the pitching of Carson Kirkpatrick making the JV undefeated with three wins in district.   Kirkpatrick, too, is 3-0 on the mound.

Both boys teams will be in action Saturday against Roosevelt at Norm Cash Field with the varsity game at 12:00 noon followed by the JV game.
