Greenville Lions fall in 11 innings to Sulphur Springs


GREENVILLE — Sulphur Springs 9,

Greenville 2

  The Greenville Lions hung tough with District 13-4A baseball rival Sulphur Springs for 10 innings, before falling 9-2 to the Wildcats in the 11th at John Mason Field on Saturday.

  Greenville rallied from a 2-0 deficit to tie the game in the seventh inning as Jeff Prigmore and Justin Koger both singled and then Chance Rogers slugged a two-out double off the center field wall to score Prigmore and Koger. Rogers, however, was stranded at second when Sawyer Harmon flew out to center.

  Rogers reached third with one out in the 10th inning, but Harmon struck out and Trevor White bounced out to third, ending the Greenville threat.

  Sulphur Springs, which had been shut out for nine straight innings by Greenville pitcher Hayden Stuart, finally broke through in the 11th to score seven runs off two Greenville relievers on six hits and a couple of errors. Stuart allowed eight hits and only one walk in his 10-inning stint while fanning seven.
