(BROWNSVILLE) – Going into Wednesday morning’s practice, Donna High head baseball coach Joey Ramirez felt it was time to make some changes.
“We need to change some things up on the defensive end,” said Ramirez. “We shot ourselves in the foot and made too many errors against Edcouch-Elsa on Tuesday.”
“So we are going to try something different at practice to shift things up.”
On Thursday night, those changes ended up working into their favor as Donna High looked like a completely different team and secured their first district win of the season by a score of 11-8 over Brownsville Lopez.
“I saw a big change in the kids today and those changes we made paid off,” said Ramirez. “We seem to have found a defense that I am satisfied with and our pitcher Forrest Jones did a nice job on the mound as well.”
Ramirez was also pleased with the Redskins offensive production as his team knocked out 15 hits on the night.
“Our bats were hot tonight,” said Ramirez. “When our bats are on, we put ourselves in a good position to try and get a win.”
“Now that our defense seems to be coming around and our pitching is getting there, I feel good with where we are at.”
The Redskins improve to 1-2 in 32-5A and will get ready for Porter on Tuesday.
