College Baseball: Bobcats squander late lead, fall 7-6 to UT Arlington

Sports Editor

It happened again.

When Texas State jumped ahead of UT Arlington for the first time during Thursday night's pivotal conference tilt inside Bobcat Ballpark, the bullpen was afforded a shot at redemption after a disastrous series against Arkansas State.

Instead, Ty Harrington's team squandered yet-another late-inning lead as the Mavericks brought across three runs in the eighth en route to a 7-6 victory over the Bobcats.

Texas State senior Cedric Vallieres has been a consistent power source for his team this season with 10 homers.

Before the season began, not many coaches around the district thought that the Rattlers would be in this position.

After a two-game sweep of San Antonio McCollum, San Marcos starts its best-of-three series in the area finals against the Georgetown Eagles (17-11) tonight at Georgetown High School. First pitch is set for 7 p.m.

While they might have squeaked into the post-season, the Rattlers proved their worth during last Friday’s convincing, 10-3 win over the Cowboys to claim the bi-district championship.

Outdoors: A perfect way to break in a new boat


Last week was a busy one.  

My wife Beth and I drove 2200 miles round trip to central Florida to bring back a new bay boat that we had custom built.  

It was a long, fast and tiring trip.

The day after returning to Texas was spent wiring a new electric trolling motor so that I could take my granddaughter Demaris Darnell and her friend Gracie Stewart to Lake Bastrop bass fishing in the new boat.

They are very competitive and each was determined to catch the first fish from the new boat.
