Friday’s game against New Braunfels was a tough defeat for the Hornets, as they lost 15-7. The game was tied 4-4 in the bottom of the 7th with runners on 1st and 2nd for the Hornets, but they were left stranded causing the game to go into extra innings. New Braunfels scored 11 runs in the top of the 8th inning putting the game out of reach. This is the first loss for the Hornets in district. Brian Forke was on the hill for the Hornets. The righty went six and a third innings, allowing four runs on seven hits and striking out 11.
The Hornets will look to bounce back as they host Smithson Valley tonight, 4/20, here at EC.
