Round 4 for baseball playoffs began as McKinney Boyd took on Woodlands in Georgetown.
Things got off to a rough start for Boyd as immediately six runs were knocked in by The Woodlands in the first inning. Walks and errors killed the team as the majority of the runs were unearned. However, things began to settle after the first inning as Chad Brown got his groove back and shut them down for the rest of the game. The offense was not as dominant as it had been in previous games and they only put up two, which were scored by Sam McGinnis’s walk and a wild pitch.
All in all, it was a very rough game for Boyd. However, there was some promise shown as they were able to play a great despite the big inning. This team always bounces back after a rough game so the second game of the series should be interesting to say the least.
And just like that, it was an unbelievable game. Jack Hagan was amazing yet again, going 5 and two-thirds and allowing two runs. Dawson Goheen once again came in and shut down The Woodlands and earned the save. Everyone did their job on the offense in this game as 11 hits were racked up and four RBIs, one by Tyler Collins, Chase Peterson, Jack Brinkley, and Simon Reid. The two late runs by Boyd in the sixth inning were enough to propel them over The Woodlands. They won by a score of 4-2.
Game three will be the third straight series Boyd has gone into three games and will hopefully be their third straight series in which they win. It will take place at Corsicana High School at 3:00pm on Saturday, May 25.
