Donkeys fall to Maysville; Bronchos win thriller over Velma-Alma

CENTRAL HIGH — Friday saw day two of the Red Dirt Baseball Classic tournament take place from Central High, with three Stephens County teams in action.


Just when it looked like the Donkeys were going to enter the win column against the Warriors of Maysville, things went horribly wrong.

Entering the top of the third inning, B-D held a 4-3 lead, but everything changed when MHS’ Kaleb House came to the plate with a runner on first.

House sent a shot down the first base line, which scored a run to tie the game at 4-4.

Then, three throwing errors allowed House to round the bases and score himself to give MHS a 5-4 advantage, which it never gave up.

In the bottom of the fourth inning, the Donkeys had an opportunity to get back in the game with two runners on base, but two strikeouts ended B-D’s hope of a comeback.

B-D’s offense struck in the bottom of the first inning when Cody Watson hit a sacrifice fly RBI to make it a 2-1 game before Austin Long scored on a wild pitch to make it a 3-2 game in the bottom of the second inning.

Michael Hendrix tied the game at 3-3 when he scored on a throwing error to first base in the bottom of the second.

Watson then gave the Donkeys the lead with an RBI single.

Zach Ashbey and Jonathan Akins provided the offense for Maysville in the top of the first, giving the Warriors a 2-0 lead.

Bryce Jensen made it 3-1 for Maysville with an RBI single in the top of the second.

Tanner Dowers added one more run for Maysville in the top of the fourth inning.

Cody Watson took the loss on the mound for the Donkeys, allowing six runs on four hits with six strikeouts and seven walks.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
