T-M got single runs in the first, second and fifth innings off Blackwell, but that was it. Beeville scored its lone run in the bottom of the third to trail 2-1 until the fifth.
Then came the top of the sixth. The Warriors benefitted with several “seeing-eye” singles and pops that found the holes in the Trojan defense. A couple of Beeville errors also helped the visitors with the big inning. Only seven Warrior runs actually crossed home plate in the inning, but the scoreboard read eight, and the umpires called the game on the 10-run rule.
With a good fastball and an even better curve, T-M left-hander Mason Hellums kept the Trojans in check all night, allowing just two hits and striking out 15 Beeville batters. Trojans Marcus Gomez and Daniel Amador had the two team hits and Gomez’s produced the lone run in the home half of the third. Third baseman Jonathan Huser scored Beeville’s run.
Hellums also helped himself with a perfect 4-4 effort at the plate for the Warriors. T-M had 17 hits on the night in the win.
The Trojans went 0-12 in district play this year.
