Four hits from Reagan Hibbs helped lead the way for Bastrop over Cedar Creek 14-2 last Tuesday, March 30.
The Bears got things rolling early. A Hibbs single setup the first score when Connally Bodine tripled to bring him home giving the Bear the early 1-0 advantage, and a lead they would not relinquish.
After Conrad Pace reached being hit by a pitch, Bodine crossed the plate after tagging up. Pace would make his way to third before scoring via a sacrifice play, pushing the lead to 3-0.
In the Eagles’ half of the first, they looked to make things interesting, grabbing two runs before the first out was recorded. The Bears defense bared down, holding the lead after one 3-2.
Bastrop added a run in their second frame. Peter Bacon was hit by a pitch and trotted to first. Two outs later, Hibbs would single, bringing home Bacon to re-extend the lead to two runs at 4-2.
Both squads went quietly in the third inning; it would be the only inning the Bears did not score. They added two more runs in the fourth.
With two on and two out, Hibbs singled, driving in Austin Tabola. That was followed by a Bodine fielder’s choice that scored Isaiah Herrin to make the score 6-2 in favor of the Bears.
Bastrop extended their lead to five when Wyatt Hamilton crossed home in the fifth.
In the sixth inning, Caleb Brewer and Bodine would come in the sixth for scores, pushing the lead to 9-2.
The Bears would add their final five runs in their half of the seventh to seal the win and put away the Eagles.
Hibbs had a 4-for-4 performance with four singles and two RBI’s. He also started on the mound, striking out 11 and walking two.
The Bears record now stands at 7-7. They will be back home on April 6 to host Pflugerville Connally.
