Lobo baseball triumphs over Anderson 6-2

By Ryan Mayner

The Lehman Lobos defeated the Anderson Trojans 6-2 Friday night in a District 14-6A baseball game played at Lobo field. 

The Lobos made their fans nervous by giving up a quick two-run lead after only one out had been recorded in the top of the first. 

But starting pitcher Micah Tambur got in a groove, struck out seven, and came within two outs of pitching a complete game. 

Longtime Kyle coach Toby Robinson said he felt his team played “excellent.”  

“We did a lot of things right after the first inning. It was a miscommunication: it happened,” Robinson said. “We came back, got re-focused, shut ‘em down and scored in five out of six innings – so I’m happy right now.” 

The Lobos came out swinging in the bottom of the first. Catcher and clean-up hitter Ryan Castillo hit a run-scoring single with two outs in the opening inning, scoring Joshua Turk, who later had an RBI double himself. Leh-man tied the game at 2-2 after an inning. 

Lehman scored a run in the bottom of the fourth and in the bottom of the sixth. But it was the two-run home run hit by Castillo in the bottom of the fifth that was the play of the game. 

It got the biggest cheers from the fans and forced Anderson to change pitchers.   

 “That’s Ryan Castillo; he’s steadily getting better as every game goes on,” Robinson said. “He’s leading the team in hitting right now and maybe even the district.”

It was a sloppy game, with several miscommunications, passed balls, wild pitches and mental errors. 

Even the routine throw back to the pitcher resulted in several tense moments for the Trojans. 

Anderson did put one last scoring opportunity together against Tambur in the top of the seventh. 

It forced Robinson to take him out against the pitcher’s will. Reliever Josh Valdez was called in to strike out two of the three batters he faced, earning the save and ending the game with some drama as there were runners on first and third.

Lehman improves to 8-6-1 on the year, 3-5 in district play. Anderson falls to 2-9, 1-4. 

 “If we do our things, we’ll be able to compete… that’s how it is always,” Robinson said.
