March 29, 2011 Hillcrest VS Mavs

Mauldin Mavericks Baseball Fans

Mauldin Mavericks hosted the Hillcrest Rams on Tuesday evening and lost another region game by a score of 4 to 6 in extra innings. Making a last ditch effort in the bottom of the 8th - Mavs had bases loaded, 2 outs but a great catch in Center field by the Rams put the game away.

Layton Meacham started on the bump and pitched 7 complete innings allowing 5 hits, 2 walks and striking out 6. Alex Eccles came in for relief in the eighth inning, pitched 2/3 inning surrendering 2 hits, 2 walks and 1 intentional walk. Brandon Justice pitched the remanding 1/3 inning. 

Offensively, the Mavs bats were dead for most of the game but showed a little life in the bottom of the third when Sophomore Cory Thompson (1 for 4) hit a RBI double, followed by RBI single from Jeremiah McKie (1 for 3) and Eighth Grade LT Tolbert (2 for 4) 2 singles and 2 RBIs . Senior Ranz Bodison (1 for 3) had a double. 

The Mavericks contest with Byrnes was cancelled. Next Game is away at Boiling Springs on Friday, April 1. JVs at 5:30 and Varsity at 7:30. 

Go Mavs!
