Following a shut-out win over Midlothian Heritage Thursday, the Yellow Jackets couldn't keep their excellent defensive play going Friday dropping a game against Alvarado, 10-6.
The Indians hopped out front early on scoring the game's opening run in the first inning on a sacrifice fly. However, Stephenville managed to respond in the bottom of the inning with Cody Storrs scoring on a passed ball.
The Indians' offense continued to threaten in the second, but pitcher Caleb Gibbons managed to work around a bases loaded jam without allowing any Alvarado runs.
Stephenville took the lead in the third as Clay Krause got on base due to an error and was driven in by Derek Gifford. The Stephenville lead doubled in the bottom of the fourth as Luke Bullard drove in Seth Heupel on a sacrifice fly, but the lead wouldn't be enough.
With runners on every base in the top of the fifth, Gibbons managed to strike out what would have been the third out, but a wild pitch allowed a baserunner to score and the batter to be safe at first base. By the time the inning had ended, Alvarado had jumped out in front, 6-3.
Stephenville did tack on three more runs over the final few innings, but as did Alvarado locking in the result.
