Texas State scrimmage

I made it out to Disch-Falk today to watch the Texas State scrimmage. 'Had a great time. The weather was gorgeous. And, the Horns managed to win the scrimmage 9-7, despite trailing for most of the game. I learned quite some time ago that there's no point in trying to keep score at these affairs (they play fast and loose with substitutions and number of batters...both teams started with 10 listed batters) so I didn't even take my score book with me. But, I did take my camera so you know what that means, eh?

Anyway, there's a report (of sorts) on the TexasSports.com page. If I'd known they were going to post such a meager thing, I would've tried to keep score for y'all. Not even the hint of a line? And, no photos? It just gets worse, eh? Sigh...

Even though I didn't keep score, I did take a few notes so can share a bit more info than you will find on the linked report. Texas State scored 3 in the 1st on a 2-out 3-run homer. Texas answered with 2 in the bottom of the frame (rbi single by Jordan Etier and a solo homerun by Russell Moldenhauer). The Bobcats put another 3 on the board in the 4th. Texas answered with single runs in the 4th (rbi single by Tant Shepherd) and 5th (rbi single by Kevin Keyes). Texas State scored their last run in the 6th. Texas then scored a solo run in the 8th (another rbi by Moldenhauer), 2 in the 12th to tie things up (2-run homerun by Shepherd), and 2 in the 14th (2-run single by, who else?, Shepherd). Texas scored 2 in the 14th, by the way, because they played out the complete inning, rather than end the game after the go-ahead run scored. I'm guessing that was an agreed-upon rule for the scrimmage. Sorry to say, I have no hit/error totals. I don't recall any errors by either team, though. That doesn't mean there weren't any...just that I don't remember any! The scoreboard was not functioning, by the way, so no help there either. Texas State did put a bunch of hits on the board. They probably averaged at least one per inning. Texas did not fare as well in the hitting department but did more with their hits. 'Works for me!

Oh, well. I took pictures. I got at least one of everyone that entered the game. Going by the roster that was handed out, the following players did not see playing time (and I did not get their photos...sorry): Nick DeSantiago, Keifer Nuncio, Kendal Carrillo, Riley Boening, Hoby Milner, Ben Kaplan, and Hunter Wilcox. I did see one player (bullpen catcher) suited up not listed on the roster: #42. Maybe that was Wilcox...listed as #46 on the roster? Dunno.

Anyway, on with the photos!

Here's Cohl Walla (#1) out at 2b in the 12th:
