GAME STORY: Abilene High snaps losing streak with strong showing against rival Cooper

Stepping outside of their respective district races for a rare April nondistrict game, both the Abilene High and Cooper baseball teams were hoping to snap losing streaks in the crosstown matchup Saturday at Cougar Field.

With a strong pitching performance from Danian Martinez and three big innings at the plate, the Eagles were able to accomplish that.

Trailing 1-0 after an inning, AHS scored four in the second and three in the third to take control early, before holding off a late Cooper rally in a 10-4 win over the Cougars. The Coogs pulled within four at 7-3 with two runs in the sixth, but the Eagles countered with a three-run outburst in the seventh to pull ahead by a game-high seven runs and held on from there for their fist win since March 10.
