Unfortunately, the Bucks came away with an 11-1 loss in a game that ended in five innings due to the 10-run mercy rule.
“I thought we played well at times and did what we needed to in order to get runners in scoring position,” said Bucks head coach Pat Yarbrough. “We had one run cross the plate and had the bases loaded and called a suicide bunt to get another run across and it just didn’t go our way. But you have to give Cisco some credit. They are a really good team.”
The Bucks loaded the bases in the top of the first inning following back-to-back singles by Cruz Martinez and Eli McLane and a walk by Parker Landon.
Breckenridge, however, came up empty in the inning following two straight outs.
Cisco powered home four runs in the bottom half of the inning including a three-run home run by Cisco’s Cole Scott.
The Bucks were retired in order in the second inning, while Cisco scored two runs pushing the lead to 6-1.
Breckenridge’s lone run of the game came following an RBI double by McLane to score Quinton Ellis.
The Loboes scored two more runs in the fourth inning and three in the fifth inning ending the game at 11-1.
McLane led the Bucks hitting going two-for-three with a double, single and one RBI. Martinez went three-for-three, with three singles.
McLane pitched all five innings and allowed 10 runs (nine earned) on nine hits and had eight walks and three strikeouts.
The Bucks will play Eastland at 4:30 p.m. Friday, April 4, in Breckenridge.
