American Legion starting
pitcher No. 12 PJ Mays gave up
10 hits, nine runs and two walks
against the Comanche Indians.
Benevidez and Pereyda both hit sin-
gles. Phillips hit a single that was mis-
played by the shortstop and Benevidez
scored a run (21-13).
Mendez loaded the bases again with
a hit to center field and Pruski drove
Pereyda home with a single to left field
(21-14). Phillips scored the final run of
the game when Keever grounded the
ball to shortstop (21-15).
“I couldn’t prouder of the boys. They
weren’t intimidated by anybody that we
played, they showed up, swung the bat
and had a great time,” Lawrence said.
“They played their hearts out. There
was no give up in them. They played
with a lot of heart and they left it all on
the field so there’s nothing for them to
hang their heads over,” Rios said.
Despite the loss, American Legion
refused to become distracted by the
point deficit and proved why they de-
served to be city champions and partic-
ipate in the state tournament.
“I teach the boys to be good sports
and play hard. We want to win, but
we’re gracious when we lose. They’re
good sports and we just like the stiff
competition,” Lawrence said.
“After backing up last year, I think
we represented the league well and I
have a feeling we’ll be back again next
year and get a little further.”
The victory sent the Indians into the
semi-finals on Friday to defeat the
Breckenridge Bucks (2-2) and face
Grapeland in the finals. Grapeland
pulled off the win to claim the state
