HS Baseball: The Woodlands Shuts Out Conroe in First Game of Series
THE WOODLANDS, TX – The Woodlands Highlanders hosted the Conroe Tigers at Scotland Yard on Friday Night as a part of a two game series in the district season. The Woodlands is coming off a win against New Caney while Conroe is looking for a win after a loss to Willis.
The Woodlands made a huge statement in the bottom of the first with three runs batted in, two from Tyler Howard and one from Bryce Graves. They would quickly lead going into the second, 3-0.
Ethan Coronel would be the pitcher for The Woodlands and would quickly retire the Conroe batters. In the bottom of the third The Woodlands would rally up scoring four more runs off a couple hits and an error at second base. This would give the Highlanders an 8-0 lead.
Heading into the bottom of the fourth, The Woodlands could see the game ending early as they hit an additional two more runs in which would give them a 10-0 lead.
The game was called due to the high school baseball mercy rule which states, “If at the end of five innings, your team is down ten runs, then the game ends and you lose.”
Conroe will have home field advantage in their final game against The Woodlands on Saturday.
