ODESSA - All three of the Permian baseball teams were in action this weekend.  Weather forced the Varsity to take part in the El Paso Tourney, instead of traveling to the Metroplex as originally scheduled.  JV Black hosted the ECISD Tourney at McCanlies Field, while JV White was visiting the neighboring tournament in Midland.

higdonThe Varsity picked up four victories, while coming up short in two games over the three-day span of their tournament.  The sub-varsity teams played a pair of games on Friday and again on Saturday.  JV White recorded a 3-1 mark, with JV Black having to settle with a 1-3 finish.

In El Paso, Permian utilized seven hits in the debut game to knock off Pebble Hills, 5-1.  Las Cruces put together a series of five hits in the first inning to jump out to a 5-0 lead in the second game of the day.  Two Permian fielding errors and failing to get on the scoreboard until the sixth inning yielded an 8-1 loss in the afternoon game.

The Panthers swept their games in Day Two with a 9-0 shutout win over Rio Rancho and an come-from-behind win over El Paso Franklin.  The Cougars held a 4-3 edge after three innings, but the Panthers tied the game in the fourth.  Isaiah Flores led off with a walk, and Christian Tschauner slapped a shot to right field to score Flores.  Mojo unleashed a four-run fifth inning behind a Tanner Adams single, Seth Higdon double, Flores base hit, and Christian LaChance single.  Franklin cut into the 8-4 Mojo lead with a run in the sixth inning, but Permian went on to claim the 8-5 victory.

In the final day of tournament play, Permian had a meltdown in the morning game - committing six costly errors in a 15-5 five-inning 10-run rule loss to El Paso Americas.  The Panthers bounced back to defeat El Paso Eastlake 9-5 in the tourney finale.  Despite another five errors in the game, Mojo posted five runs in the first frame.  Base hits by Adams, Tschauner, and Flores, coupled with doubles by Taylor Sullivan and Manny Guerrero, gave Permian the 5-0 lead.  A pair of Eastlake errors, and hits from Guerrero and Caden Bedrick, extended the lead to 8-1 in the third frame.

In overall tournament stats, Adams and Keatyn Armstrong led the Panthers at the plate with .636 batting averages.  Tyler Ramage pitched six innings - striking out three, giving up three hits, and allowing no runs.  Peyton Hutson pitched 5.2 innings - striking out six, giving up six hits, and allowing six runs.  LaChance also spent 5.2 innings on the mound - recording four strikeouts, two hits, and three runs.

JV White participated in the Midland Freshmen tourney and won all but one of their games, the loss coming in the last game of the tournament.  Greenwood took an early lead with a four-run second inning, but JV White rallied to claim an 11-7 victory on Thursday.  Permian dominated Friday's action with convincing win over Midland Trinity, 16-3.  The game went six innings before the 10-run mercy rule was invoked.

The afternoon match with Midland High went scoreless through six innings.  JV White erupted with six seveth inning runs to claim the 6-0 win.  The Panthers loaded the bases and scored the first run on a forced walk.  A Bulldog fielding error gave Permian a 3-0 lead.  Ashton Coats blasted a one-out RBI triple to right field to make it 5-0.  A Kendyn Armstrong RBI single gave JV White the 6-0 lead.  Midland High led off with a triple in the bottom of the seventh, but failed to score in their last at-bat.  Saturday's finale with San Angelo Central wasn't pretty.  Permian suffered nine fielding errors over six innings and came up on the short end of a 16-8 decision.

Coats finished the tourney with a .667 batting average, going 8-for-12 with no strike outs.  Pitcher McCrea Gann struck out 15, gave up three hits, and allowed no runs.

JV Black started the ECISD Tourney with the annihilation of Big Spring, to the tune of 22-5 on Friday morning.  In the matinee, it turned into a slugfest with Frenship.  The Tigers scored two runs to open the game, but the Panthers answered with five runs of their own in the bottom of the inning.  Frenship tied the game in the top of the fourth, and the game remained deadlocked until the seventh inning.  The Tigers added a pair of runs in the top of the final frame to take a 7-5 lead.  JV Black cut into the deficit but was unable to get any closer than 7-6.

In the Saturday morning game, Midland High took a 6-0 lead before Permian answered with three runs in the bottom of the sixth.  The Bulldogs took a 6-3 win from the Panthers.  In the finale, JV Black owned a 2-1 lead over Andrews through three innings.  A four-run fourth inning Mustangs surge left the Panthers on the short end of a 5-3 loss to close out the tournament.

Caden Clinton led the hitting with a .571 tourney batting average, going 8-of-14 with no strike outs.  Hunter Beltran topped the JV Black pitching - striking out nine batters, walking only one, and giving up eight hits.
