Wharton 10, East Bay 9
Wharton was able to hold off East Bay for a win on the road on Saturday as the Wildcats put up crooked numbers in three-straight innings. Four, fifth-inning doubles from Justis Meadows (2-for-3, run, RBI), Jake Turer (2-for-3, run, RBI), Drew Cobb (3-for-4, two runs, RBI), and AJ Johnstone (1-for-3, three RBI) keyed a five run inning to push Wharton out just far enough. East Bay tried to rally for a win in the final inning for the second-straight game scoring four on a home run by Kyler Browning (4-for-4, double, two runs, three RBI), and two errors, but the Indians couldn’t scratch out the tying run. Jeffrey Diab (run) and Bobby Hayes (two RBI, run) each had two hits in the loss.
