(BROWNSVILLE) – With their backs against the wall, the Donna High baseball team needed to try and find a way to dig down deep in an attempt to upend Brownsville Pace.
Trailing 5-0, the Redskins created a spark as they scored five runs in the top of the sixth inning which ended up tying the contest.
All of the momentum seemed to be in their favor as Donna High was looking to walk out of Brownsville with a fourth consecutive victory.
However, Pace was able to pick up a run in the seventh and escaped with a 6-5 win.
Donna High now falls to 3-3 in District 32-5A and hopes to get back on track as they will end the first half on Friday night against Brownsville Veterans.
“This was a tough loss because a win would have put us in a really good position in the standings,” said Donna High head coach Joey Ramirez. “And even though we dropped this game, the kids are fired up and really want to make a statement on Friday.”
“We have district leader Vets coming into our house the boys are so ready to pick up a big win. It’s been a while since we have played at home and I know our guys are fired up about it. We will be ready to go come Friday and hopefully we can end the first half on a positive note.”
