Katy suffers setback against Strake Jesuit

Posted

Katy suffered a setback in the first game of their regional semifinal matchup with Strake Jesuit.

The Tigers fell 2-1 in the matchup, leading to them needing to take both game two and three if they are to move on to the regional finals.

Lucas Moore was on the mound for the Tigers and did everything in his power to keep Katy in it, going six innings and allowing two runs on four hits while striking out six and walking three.

Garrett Stratton earned the win for Strake Jesuit by pitching a complete game and allowing just one run on two hits while striking out five and walking two.

It was a pitchers duel the whole night, but Katy struck first in the top of the first inning, with Ryan George leading off with a single and Parker Kidwell following that up with a single of his own. Jhonnatan Ferrebus then drove in a run on a sacrifice grounder, but a pop up and a ground out ended the inning.

Moore held Strake Jesuit at bay until the sixth inning, when the Crusaders finally found a way to get on the board.

The inning started with a fly out, but a single and a hit by pitch got two runners on base.  Kade Baron then hit a double that drove in both runners before Katy was able to end the inning. Katy got a runner on with a walk in the top of the seventh, but a strikeout and ground out ended the game and gave Katy the loss.

Game two will be played Friday at 7 p.m. at Mayde Creek with game three being played at 1 p.m. Saturday if needed.
