Donkeys season ends with two tough losses

CENTRAL HIGH — While the Bray-Doyle Donkeys might have been eliminated Thursday afternoon at the district tournament, they sure went out swinging.

B-D found itself overwhelmed by Central High, before falling in a heartbreaker to Fletcher to end its season.

“We eliminated the mistakes we created for ourselves in the first game,” B-D coach Cody Tutwiler said about the second game. “We just got beat on a base hit. I’d rather lose on a base hit than an error. We battled back to tie the game up, things just didn’t go our way out there.”


Early on against the Bronchos, it was clear the Donkeys weren’t having the best luck.

A seven run second inning was too much for B-D to overcome as the Donkeys eventually fell in six innings.

Kade Taylor received a stroke of luck when he connected for a two-RBI triple, moments after a decision to grant him first base on a hit by pitch was overturned.

Matthew Quisenberry then made it 3-0 with an RBI, before Mikel Womack padded the lead at 4-0.

Joseph Flood (2) and Jarrett Sparks rounded out the inning each with RBI hits.

Cody Watson got the Donkeys on the board with a home run in the top of the fourth to left field, making it a 7-1 game.

Rodney Hall also went yard in the game, connecting with a two-run home run also to left field, which made the score 11-3 in the top of the fifth inning.

However, RBI’s from Flood, Sparks and Roger Robertson kept the Bronchos in the lead at a comfortable distance.

Quisenberry made it 12-3 when he scored on a wild pitch in the bottom of the fifth, before John Repp ended the game with a walk-off single.

Watson was tagged with the loss for the Donkeys, throwing five innings of work allowing 12 runs on nine hits with one walk and five strikeouts.

Ashton Wright got the win for the Bronchos, throwing 4 2/3 innings of work allowing three runs on two hits with six strikeouts and two 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.
