Tiger baseball crushes Lions 7-2

Consistent offense helped the Dripping Springs Tigers blast the Lockhart Lions 7-2 March 15 and extend the team’s win streak to seven games.

The victory also capped off a successful Spring Break for the Tigers as they outscored their three opponents 19-8.

Dripping Springs began the week by defeating Seguin 3-1 March 13  to even the team’s district record to 1-1. Dripping Springs then cruised past Del Valle in a non-district 9-5 victory.

Leading the way for Dripping Springs was senior pitcher Johnny Hoyle, who struck out 10 batters and gave up two unearned runs on seven hits in a complete game effort.

Hoyle helped his own cause at the plate by going 3 for 4 with a pair of RBIs in the game. Tiger senior Brittain Howeth went 2 for 4 with a double and 2 RBIs, while senior Reed Beverly went 1 for 3 with a triple in the game.

As a team, Dripping Springs went 11 for 28 at the plate on the afternoon.

Dripping Springs led 4-0 over Lockhart after two innings, and then increased its lead to 6-0 after the fifth frame.

Lockhart countered with a pair of runs in the sixth frame, but the Tigers responded with a pair of runs in the bottom half.

The Tigers continued district play Tuesday when they hosted Boerne Champion, which entered the game unbeaten in district.

Dripping Springs travels to play at Alamo Heights on March 23 before returning home to play Medina Valley on March 26.
