No. 6 Monterey Tops Lubbock High to take 4-4A Title

Monterey Baseball used 14 un-answered runs to capture the District 4-4A title over the Lubbock High Westerners 14-5 on Friday night.

Monterey Baseball used 14 un-answered runs to capture the District 4-4A title over the Lubbock High Westerners 14-5 on Friday night.

Lubbock high jumped up 3-0 before things got heated as Camden Arnold picked off Jack Walter, and he ran over Monterey Shortstop Zac Sanders. Sanders took exception to the collision and shoved Walter to the ground, both players would be ejected and play would resume.

With the heat of the moment still hanging over the field, future UT-Arlington Maverick Daniel James laced a two-run homerun over the left field fence that put the Westerners up 5-0 and they looked to be in total control.

But in the bottom of the inning the Plainsmen would mount a rally starting with an Evan Gayler Double. Gayler and Trevon Benton would eventually score to make it 5-2, with Mike Mercado at the plate.

Mercado looped a Daniel James pitch into shallow center that would score Christian Cedillo, and a Lubbock High error at third would allow Evan Brake to score as well to cut the deficit to 5-4, and that would prove to be a precursor of things to come as the mistakes mounted for Lubbock High, and Monterey took advantage as they scored 14 straight runs and they are the 2014 district 4-4A champions.
