Lindsay hits Farmersville hard for 10-1 win

By Andrea Camarena

Preseason has shown its ups and downs for Lindsay baseball so far this year.

The team was unable to create a win until the Immanuel tournament (3-3), but the Cardinals returned home last week to host Farmersville in a 10-1 Lindsay win.

Lindsay started off the game by holding off Farmersville in their first appearance at the plate. The Cardinals took to the bases to bring in two runs in the bottom of the first inning. Their early lead was cut in half when the Aztecs brought in a run at the top of the second. The Cardinals were unable to answer back until the third inning when they brought in two more runs to segue into a rallying fourth inning. Lindsay started off the bottom of the fourth with a single from Daniel Tapia to get the rally started. Things almost looked bright for Farmersville when Lindsay's next batter, Vicente Rincon struck out and Dionicio Olmos followed it up with a pop-fly for the Cardinal's second out. But Farmersville walked the next batter to advance Tapia to third base. One of the Cardinals big bats and starting pitcher Abel Gamboa hit the ball into deep right field to bring in Tapia and start a two-out rally. Michael Castanon followed suit and sent the ball into center field for a single RBI that brought in both runners and increased the lead to 7-1.

But Lindsay didn't stop there as they continued to swing away and Farmersville's fielding couldn't keep up.

Next up, Bernardo Lemus finished up the hitting streak with a double into deep center field that brought in the final run of the inning.

Gamboa was the top batter for the game hitting four of four to produce three runs and bring in two more with RBI's.

Tapia and Castanon each scored two runs. Tapia hit two of one of two while Castanon went two for four.

Gamboa started at the mound for Cardinals and pitched the win. Only three batters of 16 hit off of the 6-2 pitcher.

Lemus finished up the game pitching zero hits and two strike outs in the closing two innings.

On the field, Lindsay had zero errors while Farmersville made two.

On the bags, the Cardinals stole three bases on three attempts and left only four runners on base the entire game.

The Aztecs ended the game an inning early because of an injury on their team. Without any subs to fill in for the injured player, Farmersville called the game.
