Unicorns got the big offensive game there fans had been wailing for this season And it could not have come at a better time The Unicorns pounded out eight hits and scored nine nuis in the last two innings to upset crosstown rival Canyon Cougars 133 in five innings in a District 284A showdown We have been working on putting the ball into the play and concentrating working on tak ing the right Unicom Coach Neal Miller said And that extra work on hitting certainly paid off for the Unicorns who unproved to 34 in dis trict 813 overall The second place Cougars fell to 159 52 and are two games behind Hays who is undefeated in district at 70 after beating Bastrop 62 on Friday There are three games left in district and the Unicorns still have a mathe matical shot of making it into the postseason but they will need a lot of help in the remaining dis trict season Leading 42 in the fourth inning the Uni corns took it to the Cougars and relief pitchers Brandon Cox and Johnny Zunker New Braun fels sent 10 batters to the plate and scored five runs two of them on walks and three on singles by catcher Bradley Clark and rightfielder Shan non Thayer During the inning the Cougar pitchers issued four walks The Unicorns won the game by scoring all four runs after two outs Clark who went 34 plated shortstop Carlos DeLaCerda with a single to make it 103 for NBHS The next hitter Thayer belted a single that brought home two more runs Leftfielder Michael Chapa singled to HerakJZeitung photo by THOMAS QODLEY Canyons Jerry Van Noy races back to the bag to avoid the pick off as New Braunfels first baseman Gabriel Zamora Mis up for the throw Van Noy was safe but the Unicorns still were able to upset the Cougars 133 to keep their playoff hopes alive bring home pinchrunner Kelly Garza for the final run of the game Miller hoped the big win would give the Uni corns the spark they needed to push them into postseason action Weve had a lot of opportunities to crater this year but we havent because the guys have really worked Miller said The two big sparks for the Unicorns were Clark a senior and leadoff hitter DeLaCerda who got on base four times three of them on walks and scored four runs Clark gave the Unicoms the lead for good in the third inning when he smashed a basesloaded double into centerfield that brought home two runs and made the score 42 Clarks double knocked out Cougar starting pitcher Patrick Hinojosa Unicorn pitcher Aaron Moore went five innings and gave up three runs on six hits District standings Canyon Lockhart Bastrop NewBJraunfete ifrd 148
