Comal ISD Guadalupe Tournament

 

Smithson Valley vs Kerrville Tivy

The Rangers of Smithson Valley and the Antlers of Kerrville Tivy played give-and-take baseball fir the first three innings. The Antlers scored four runs, only one of which was earned, while the Rangers squeaked out three runs, of which only one was earned. In the sixth inning, with the time limit quickly approaching, the Antlers mustered one more run, thinking it would be enough. Smithson Valley, however, came through with five runs in the bottom of the sixth by way of a handful of consecutive singles. The Rangers won 8-5.


SA Churchill vs Dripping Springs 

The bullpens for both teams proved to be the difference in the contest between the two lineups. Dripping Springs scored all five of their runs in the second inning alone off of four hits, two walks, and a sacrifice fly. Churchill scored a lone run in the first inning and then added three more in the third. They threatened with bases-loaded in the bottom of the fifth as time was expiring, but the Dripping Springs bullpen was able to close the door. There were 14 free bases issued in the contest. Dripping Springs won 5-4.

SCOUT NOTES

Justin Dunlap, 2B, Dripping Springs, 2018
Rice Commit – Dunlap showed speed and power in the contest as he went 2-3 with two doubles. He has a compact stance in the box and an explosive punching swing. He runs exceptionally well, and provides a huge spark at the top of the lineup. 

Taylor Holt, RHP, Churchill High School, 2018
Texas A&M International Commit – Holt has a deceptive, lurching delivery with an over-the-top arm slot that hides his mix of fastball, and 12-6 well.  His fastball was clocked at 83, while his curveball came in at 73. He pounds the zone, and commanded very well up and down.

Nicolas Gullo, SS/RHP, Dripping Springs, 2019
Lamar Commit – Gullo came in to close out the match for Dripping Springs. He has a quick tempo delivery, high ¾ arm slot, and aggressive finish. His fastball was in the 87-89 mph range and he snapped of a sharp 11-5 curveball at 75 mph that shows a lot of depth.
