Lexington picked up a 14-3 win over Little Axe on Monday night.
“This was a win we needed. The kids came out and executed and took care of business,” head coach Ryan Blaine said.
The Bulldogs picked up four runs in the first inning thanks in part to an RBI single from Cadyn Krueger and a two RBI single from Corbin Perry.
They added four more runs in the second inning. Ezra Faulkenberry contributed a two RBI double.
From there, they had the game in control and cruised to the win.
Tanner Brock was the winning pitcher. He went all five innings giving up one unearned run and striking out nine.
Blaine mentioned Corbin Perry who was 2-3 at the plate in the win.
“Corbin needed that. He strung together some good at-bats and that was encouraging.”
Ezra Faulkenberry was also 2-3 at the plate.
“Ezra is our senior center fielder. He’s been out and this was just his third game back. He’s finding himself and it was good to see him have some good at-bats.”
The Bulldogs were scheduled to play at Little Axe again on Tuesday, but rain in the area was threatening.
At the end of spring break, Lexington dropped a 15-1 decision to 5A Ardmore and a 14-4 loss to 4A Sulphur.
“Despite some losses we did have a few bright spots during Spring Break. A run-rule win over Asher and a win over Tecumseh were good games for us.”
Weather this week is a major factor in getting games in. Lexington is scheduled to host Bethel on Thursday but the forecast isn’t looking favorable.
“Bethel will be good. They’ll be a State tournament-caliber team again this year,” Blaine said.
Blaine also said that as they get into the meat of district play he’s pleased with his team as the younger guys gain experience and get their feet wet.
