The varsity team defeated Texas City 1-0 on Wednesday, March 15th as Francisco Perez and Adam Salinas combined to throw a shutout. The game remained 0-0 through the bottom of the third when with two outs Mauricio Martinez reached on an error and stole 2nd base to position himself for a score. Kasen Handal stepped to the plate and smacked a hard ground ball to left field scoring Martinez before he tallied the final out in a run-down. The pitching and the defense held off the Stingarees for the remainder of the game giving G.P. the “W”. Francisco Perez earned the win for the Yellowjackets throwing six and a third innings, allowing zero runs, two hits, and striking out three. Adam Salinas recorded the last two outs (the final being a strike out) to earn the save for the Jackets. Carlos Calvillo led Galena Park with two hits in three at bats. The Yellowjackets didn't commit a single error in the field and Roberto Loera led the team with eight chances in the field.

Elkins started the game with a 2 – 1 district record and was looking to improve but the Jackets were ready for them. Bailey Richey got the evening’s pitching assignment. She got off to a frustrating start, walking the leadoff batter after having her down in the count 0-2. Luckily, she induced the two hole to hit a ground ball to shortstop, senior Breanna “Beedy” Garza. Speedy Beedy scooped, stepped on second and threw to first for a double play. Senior Angelica Rodriguez made it three up three down with the first of two nice catches in right field. Elkins pitcher, Madison Martinez allowed no runs on two hits through the first two innings but ran into trouble pitching to the G.P. lineup the second time around. Senior, Alexis Valdez worked a walk and sophomore Laila Gonzalez beat out an infield hit to set the table in the third for senior, Izairia Vazquez. Vazquez drilled a line drive over the centerfield fence. That ball was hit so hard it was gone in a heartbeat. Juniors, Bailey Richey and Kassandra Vargas followed with back to back doubles plating another run. From that point forward the Jackets never looked back. Not a single G.P. batter struck out in six innings of play. The Jackets were on fire and only the outstanding Elkins outfield kept things from really getting out of hand. Galena Park’s heavy hitters were robbed of four extra base hits by the talented trio. Richey threw an excellent game, allowing no runs on two infield hits, and striking out eight in seven innings of work. She got a little revenge for the second hit by catching the next batter’s pop up and then throwing behind the runner for the second G.P. double play of the game. Galena Park picked up their fourth district win. They travel to Galveston Ball on Friday, March 10th with an encouraging 4 – 0 district record.
