Bulldogs fall again to Liberty Hill, 13-3

It was another rough night on the diamond here last Friday as the Brady Bulldogs lost another 10-run shortened baseball game to Liberty Hill by the score of 13-3. “Our game plan going into the windy game was let Michael Gutierrez throw, and we’d go and get the ball. But we made too many errors and didn’t get enough hits,” Brady coach Nathan Headrick said. Those have been the Bulldogs’ biggest two problems all season, pitching and hitting. Gutierrez reached into the fourth inning, allowing seven runs before being relieved by Blake Raybion. “We got a single run in the first frame when Luke Price drove in Raybion, but then we went five more innings before scoring two more. And by that time, the Panthers had a 10-run lead on us,” Headrick explained. The Bulldogs managed only four hits. “We put in the reserves in the final inning, and they got our last two runs of the contest,” the coach said. Burnet has wrapped up the district championship. The Bulldogs enter their last game Tuesday (tonight) with a 7-2 district record. Ironically, Brady played Burnet very close in their two meetings this spring. The Brady Dogs dropped the first contest here on March 23, 5-4, then lost in Burnet on April 10 in a 3-2 game that went extra innings. “I cannot explain why we played them so tough and lost the others by big scores,” Headrick said. The Doggies close down the season here tonight against Wimberley, who needs the victory to reach the playoffs. “There is a three-way tie for second place in the district with Liberty Hill, Ingram and Wimberley all having 5-4 records,” the Brady coach said. “If we beat Wimberley, then the loser of the Liberty Hill-Ingram game will have to have a playoff with Wimberley for third place. The winner of the Liberty Hill-Ingram game is in the playoffs,” he said. Headrick said that tonight’s game is Parents’ Night with introductions beginning at 6:50 p.m.
