GAME STORY: Anson falls in Game 3 to New Deal, 10-2

SEMINOLE — Through five straight innings, the Anson Tigers remained competitive with New Deal in Friday’s Region I-2A finale, despite leaving multiple runners on base and missing several opportunities that came with it. 

Unfortunately for Anson, the dam eventually burst in a six-run sixth for New Deal and a 10-2 win for the Lions at Robert Ryan Baseball Field. 

Noah Rodriguez was 2 for 4 with two RBIs and Arric Mares was 2 for 3 with a double and an RBI to lead New Deal (27-4), which advances to the Class 2A state semifinals next week in Round Rock.

GAME STORY: Anson, New Deal split pair to set up deciding third game

SEMINOLE — Nothing was decided after two games in the Region I-2A championship series between Anson and New Deal as the Tigers and Lions battled to a 1-1 split Thursday at Robert Ryan Baseball Field.

After New Deal outlasted Anson for a 5-3 win in eight innings in Game 1, the Tigers responded with a 5-2 victory in Game 2, forcing a deciding third game at noon Friday back in Seminole.

With its back against the wall after dropping the opener, AHS (25-7) took advantage of some timely hitting, some shaky New Deal defense and an outstanding relief effort by Dylyn Pyle to extend its season for at least one more day.
