Eaton 7, Bearcats 4

Eaton scored four runs in the first inning, added a run in the second and never looked back as the Eagles defeated the Aledo Bearcats, 7-4, Tuesday night in a District 6-5A baseball game at the AHS baseball field.

The loss drops the Bearcats to 6-3 in district play, while Eaton raises its record to 3-6.

Eaton led 7-2 before the Bearcats scored a pair of runs in the bottom of the fourth to cut the lead to 7-4.

In the seventh, still trailing by three runs, the Bearcats loaded the bases with two outs. The next batter, Calloway Shands, drew a walk to plate Jake McClendon to cut the Eagles' lead to 7-4.

However, Eaton got the next batter out to seal the win.

Both the Ladycats (6:30 p.m. start) and Bearcats (7:30 p.m. start) will return to district action Thursday at Brewer.

Aledo relief pitcher Briley Rodriguez fires a sidearm pitch Tuesday night during the Bearcats' loss to Eaton.
