Double Header

Double Header

Mary Parker Powell

If you didn’t come out to the baseball team’s double-header you sure did miss an exciting Friday.

After defeating Germantown 11-1 in a not very exciting game, Houston played rival Collierville High School.

Senior Brandon Maxwell took the mound in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th.

Top of the 7th Brandon Maxwell got Houston Baseball out of a tough spot. Collierville had runner on with no outs. Maxwell got a strike out and then a ground ball to Senior Cooper Bullough and Bullough threw the runner out at home.

Top of the 8th Senior Nic Blankenship came in to relive Brandon Maxwell and got outs from Houston Baseball.

Top of the 9th Houston Baseball needs one more out and the Cville Baseball team hit one to left fielder Junior Terrell Tatum, and Tatum made the catch.

Bottom of the 9th, Junior Reid Blair comes up to bat and hit a ball to the fence for a triple. Terrell Tatum comes up to bat after Blair and hits a base hit to bring in Blair for a 1-0 victory over Cville in 2 extra innings.

Not only did Houston Baseball win both, n but also we teamed up with St. Jude to raise money for Allie Allen. With the help of Dennis Haskins (Mr. Belding from ‘Saved by the Bell’) we raised over a $1,000.
