GAME STORY: Fast start propels Eula to 7-5 win over Cross Plains in series opener

A big first inning put Eula up 4-0 and the Pirates never trailed after that in handing Cross Plains a 7-5 loss in Game 1 of a best-of-three Region I-1A bi-district baseball series Thursday at Abilene Cooper’s Cougar Field. 

EHS took advantage of two hits and three Cross Plains errors during that first inning, which staked starter Paxton Rock to an advantage he’d never relinquish in earning a complete-game win.

The victory gives the Pirates a chance to close out the series on Friday when the two teams return to Cougar Field at 4 p.m. for Game 2. Game 3, if necessary, would be played 30 minutes after the conclusion of the second game.
