Mojo Competes In Tourney of Champions
Sunday, March 05, 2017 02:14

MIDLAND - Permian competed in the annual Tournament of Champions hosted in Midland and finished with a 2-3 mark over the three days of tourney play. The Panthers picked up wins over Andrews and Plainview, while suffering losses to Frenship, Canyon Randall, and Lubbock High.


adamsThursday's lone game for Permian not only opened tournament play, but also ushered in the first district game of the 2017 season for 2-6A teams. Frenship capitalized on four Mojo errors to claim a 4-0 decision at Security Bank Ballpark. The Panthers were held to two hits and no PHS runner was able to get past second base for seven innings. Tanner Adams and Rhett Bratcher provided the two base hits.

 
On Friday, Andrews was first to get on the scoreboard in the third inning, but it was Permian that steadily put the game away in the latter innings to claim a 5-2 victory at Christensen Stadium. In the afternoon match-up, Canyon Randall had their way with the Panthers in a 14-4 five inning tilt. Mojo committed four errors and were limited to six hits, while the Raiders finished with 17 hits. Randall scored runs in every inning to hand Permian the 10-run rule loss.

 
Saturday also produced a split outcome of games for the Panthers. In the morning outing, Mojo utilized a three-run seventh inning rally to defeat Plainview. Permian posted a run in the top of third frame and added another in the fifth. The Bulldogs came back with a pair of runs in the bottom of the inning and added another in the sixth to take a 3-2 lead.

 
Trailing in the top of the seventh, Adams led off with a hard hit grounder to left field to represent the tying run on first base. A sacrifice ground out to the infield advanced Adams to second base, and a wild pitch had him standing on third base with one out. Mojo knotted the game 3-3 on a long flyball to centerfield.  Bratcher drew a walk to first base in his at-bat. With two outs and a runner on first, Tyson Banks stepped into the box. A called strike and foul ball had Banks pinned with an 0-2 count. The next pitch down the gut was driven over the left field fence to give Mojo a 5-3 lead. A grounder to the shortstop ended the Permian at-bat. The Bulldogs sent four batters to the plate for three outs and the Panthers preserved the 5-3 win.

 
In the afternoon tilt, Lubbock High jumped out to a 5-0 lead through three complete innings. In the top of the fourth, Mitch Riddle led off with a single to right field. Bratcher got hit by a pitch, and Nate Kizziar hit a base shot to left field for Mojo to load the bases with one out. Manny Guerrero followed and slapped a double to centerfield, allowing Riddle and Bratcher to cross the plate. A strikeout and ground out left three runners stranded, but Permian was able to produce the two-run fourth inning.  The Panthers were unable to make up the difference the remainder of the game to fall 8-2 to the Westerners.

 
The Panthers turn their attention to the First Bank Classic in Lubbock, another three day affair.  The tournament is scheduled for March 9-11.
