Terrell makes it 3 in a row

The Tigers hosted the Lions from Ennis yesterday at the ball field at Ben Gill Park.  The Tigers were looking to win their 3rd district game in a row, while Ennis was looking for its 7th district win.

Tyler Horn was on the mound for the Tigers and he pitched a great game.  He pitched 6 innings, gave up 5 hits, and 1 walk. He worked around 3 errors and only allowed 1 run to score.  Cody Patton pitched the 7th inning and struck out the side to preserve the win.  Heath Hottinger, Kris Priddy and Cody Patton all had RBIs for the Tigers.  Ennis dropped to 6-2 in district and the Tigers moved their district record to 3-5.  Next up is Mesquite Poteet on Tuesday night.

I rented a 70-200, f/2.8 lens from for the weekend.  The photos from Friday nights game along with Saturdays game were all taken with the lens.  It took a while to find the settings I wanted, but I'm happy with the results.  There needs to be a camera layaway store, because it's on my wish list.

Nice shots. I like the spray of the dirt in the 2nd shot. Great idea to rent a lens. One of my neighbors does that occasionally and swears by it.

Great action hots. You got some great expressions!

Jim, I love these baseball photos, all of the passion on their faces, the red uniforms, the green grass and fence. Super, super shots, Jim.

About getting Lamont to drive me around in the Buick, that vehicle is long gone--Mama and I sold it November, 2010. We just Zipcared after that, and that's still what I do if I'm driving. I'll get he'd drive me around in his new old Volvo station wagon.
