The Dragons of Pickens Co. came to the home of the Bobcats on Thursday looking to take game two of a three game series. The Bobcats fell to the Dragons in game one on Tuesday after late inning heroics by Pickens. The Bobcats were fired up and ready to take the field in this region match up but were quickly calmed as the Dragons put 2 runs quickly on the scoreboard. Brooks Rosser was giving them everything he had and giving well but the Dragon hitters were putting the ball in play.
The Bobcat offense would get 4 runners on base over the first 3 innings but couldn’t get them across. The Dragons would put up 3 more in the second and third carrying a 5-0 lead into the 4th inning of play. That would be enough for the win but the Dragons didn’t stop there. They would add 6 more runs over the next four innings of play. Rosser, Smith, Turner and Woody all took to the mound to try and hold down the Dragons to no avail.
The Bobcats would get something going a little too late in the bottom of the seventh. Scoring 4 runs to bring the final score to 11-4 and a Dragon win. These two teams will meet in the final game of the series and of the regular season on Friday night at the home of the Dragons starting at 5:55 pm.
The Bobcats took a short bus ride on Tuesday to face the Dragons of Pickens Co. at Dragon Field. As the visiting team, the Cat’s bats started slow in the top of the first with a one out hit from Austin Daman who would be stranded. The Bobcats offense had opportunities in the second and third leaving 3 more Bobcats stranded on the base pads and one crossing the plate.
The Bobcats would hold close to the Dragons through 3 innings. The top of the fourth inning is where the bats would warm up and Gilmer would get the fans fired up. With the first 2 batters of the inning grounding out, the next three would load the bases setting up Hunter Bowyer with the chance to put the Bobcats out front. Bowyer worked the count full and then unloaded a deep gap shot two bagger to right centerfield scoring two runs. Bowyer was thrown out at third attempting to stretch a triple to end the inning. Headed to the bottom of the fourth inning the Cats held a 4-2 lead over the Dragons. Bobcats would add one run in the sixth on a RBI double from Hunter Bowyer,
The Dragons of Pickens fought back from a 5-2 deficit to steal a victory in the last innnings and give the Bobcats yet another late game loss. Its still early in the season and the Bobcats will find a way to have a complete 7 inning game and right the ship.
Bobcats will host the Dragons at Bobcat Field on Thursday. Game is slated to start at 5:55 pm.
