All was going well for the Farmersville baseball team until a late-game stumble.
Farmersville (3-2, 9-13) fell to Caddo Mills in game one of their two-game series at home with a 2-1 loss. Leading 1-0 early on, pitcher Cooper Strawn was rolling through the first four innings, allowing no hits and striking out 10 batters.
The Farmers struggled to get consistent hits at the plate but scored in the bottom of the third inning when Logan Dale scored off an error. Farmersville had just four hits in the game.
Things flipped in the sixth when the Foxes loaded the bases with two walks and the second hit of the game. After tying the game with a sacrifice fly, Strawn was pulled for Mason Erwin with two outs. Trying to get out of the jam, an infield single with two outs gave them Caddo Mills its first lead of the game.
Farmersville will hope to split the series on the road this Friday, April 9.
