Season Ends With Win Over Frenship
Permian started the afternoon introducing the senior players and their parents as part of the Senior Day festivities. Mojo secured the finale victory in the third inning. Caden Bedrick belted out a three-run homerun over the left centerfield fence, and the Panthers never looked back. Bedrick finished 3-for-4 at the plate, which included the homer and two base hits. Both teams had chances to post runs, but the Mojo gloves kept the Tigers in check. Frenship opened the game with a lead-off double and walk, but a strikeout and a pair of flyballs to centerfield were hauled in by Easton Hernandez. The Tigers returned the favor with a Mojo flyout, ground out, and unsuccessful bunt attempt.
A total of four runners reached base courtesy of four walks in the second frame and top of the third innings. In the bottom of the third, the Panthers did their damage. Isaiah Flores led off with a base tap to left field. Tanner Adams singled, and Bedrick followed with the homerun to give Mojo the three-run lead.
Permian loaded the bases in the bottom of the fourth with the assistance of a walk and two hit batters. A strikeout and flyout left all three stranded. Three base hits were converted into an insurance run in the bottom of the sixth. Noey Brito led the at-bat with a base hit to left field and stole second. Manny Guerrero sent a grounder just past the third baseman, and Brito was able to cross the plate on the play.
The Tigers came up empty in the top of the seventh. A pair of flyballs to left and right field left Frenship one out away from defeat. A hard hit single to left field was followed by ground ball to shortstop Flores. The ball was fielded and pitched over to Adams at second base. The force out ended the game. The final game of 2019 belonged to Mojo with the 4-0 district victory.
