The Paschal Panthers batted around the lineup four times in the sixth inning, on their way to a 10-0 win against North Crowley Tuesday night.

The win improved Paschal’s district record to 2-4.

The win meant both of Paschal’s district wins have come in games shortened by the UIL’s rule that after five innings, the game will be called if one team is 10 or more runs ahead of its opponent. Paschal’s other run-shortened win came against Sam Houston on March 5.

Big players for Paschal offensively included Ben Noel, who went 3 for 3 with a double, two singles and a walk, and Jake Nelson, who went 3 for 4 with two doubles and a single.

Paschal starter Beau Campbell gave up three one-out hits in the first, loading the bases. The North Crowley third baseman hit a line drive that landed in front of Paschal left fielder Jeremy O’Neil, who scooped it up and threw to cutoff man Hunter Nurdin, who threw it to catcher Austin Cornish for the tag at home — the only time North Crowley threatened to score.

Paschal started the scoring early with four runs in the first. Leadoff hitter Drake Camilleri walked, stole second and moved to third on a Colin Merritt fielder’s choice.

After a one-out pitching change, Noel hit a ground ball to the shortstop and beat out the throw for the infield single, allowing Camilleri to score. Noel stole second and crossed the plate on a dropped ball by the North Crowley center fielder hit by Patrick Studey.

Studey moved to third on a passed ball and crossed the plate on a Jake Nelson double to left. Nelson scored the final run on a single by O’Neil.

Stranding two in the second, the Paschal offense came back in the third to score two, widening the lead to 6-0 off a Studey single allowing Noel to score and a dropped third strike by the North Crowley catcher allowing Nelson to score.

Paschal scored one more run into the fifth to extend the Panthers’ lead to 7-0. Sam Pfrang walked and scored after three passed balls allowed him to move around the bases.

Campbell got the last three North Crowley hitters to go down 1-2-3 with a pair of fly balls and a strikeout.

In the sixth and final inning, Nurdin started off by getting hit by a pitch. He stole second and moved to third on a Noel single. Studey scored Nurdin in a fielder’s choice and Nelson doubled in the ninth run for Paschal. The last run would cross the plate when Cornish singled to left.

Once Nelson crossed the plate, the umpire called the game because Paschal had scored its 10th run.

Paschal will begin a three game road trip, starting with Arlington Lamar on Thursday night at 7p.m.

The Paschal baseball team will play at home again next Friday, April 5, against Arlington Bowie at 7 p.m.
