The Glen Rose High School baseball squad split its last two District 8-4A games, taking a 6-4 victory over Alvarado last Friday before falling to third-ranked Godley Monday, 8-1.
Coach James Evans’ Tigers moved to 11-5 overall, and 2-2 in district.
In the win over Alvarado, the Tigers out-hit the Indians 10-4, getting two runs batted in and two hits from Davis Shackelford, and a 3-for-4 hitting performance from Tyler Torres with one RBI. Ashton Smith added two hits and one RBI, while Jadon Harper drove in one run.
Shackelford was the starting pitcher and got the win, striking out nine and walking three. In six innings, he gave up two runs — one earned — on two hits.
Harper pitched one inning in relief, giving up two runs on two hits. Neither run was earned.
The Tigers were facing a 2-0 deficit after the first inning, but after scoring one run in the third they had a big five-run fourth to go on top 6-2.
Alvarado notched a pair of unearned runs in the bottom of the seventh, but could do no more damage.
Godley, 13-0, limited Glen Rose to its only run in the top of the first inning on an RBI single from Smith, who was 2-for-3 at the plate.
Torres, Adrian Lewis and Jett Gould had the other hits for the Tigers.
Godley erased the Glen Rose lead with three runs in the bottom of the first, then added three more in the third, plus one each in the fifth and sixth.
Michael Watson took the loss on the hill, pitching the first three frames and giving up six runs on five hits. Connor Hansen followed, pitching two innings and giving up one run on one hit. Chance Hatfield worked the final inning and allowed one run on two hits.
The Tigers will play Waxahachie Life School on Thursday at home. The Tigers’ next game will be Tuesday (7:30 p.m.) at Stephenville.
