Three runs not enough

Friday night, Terrell Tigers coach Casey Rush told his team in the top of the 3rd inning that 3 runs would not be enough to beat Red Oak. He was right, they lost in extra innings 7-4.

Terrell jumped to a 3-0 lead after 1 inning when Nathan Adam hit a full count, 2 out, 3 run double. Terrell had opportunities to score more runs in later innings, but each time Red Oak was able to pitch out of jams.

Red Oak scored single runs in the 4th, 5th and tied the score 3-3 in the 7th with another single run.

Terrell had one more chance to win the game in the bottom of the 7th but was unable to get a runner home.

Red Oak scored 4 times in the top of the 8th inning, enough to put Terrell away. The Tigers managed to score one run in the bottom of the 8th, final score 7-4.
