Indians wrap up regular season

April 28, 2022

The Comanche baseball team wrapped up its regular season with an extra-inning 3-2 loss to Lone Grove in Lake Country Conference play.

The game was played at Plainview after the weekend rains forced the game to be moved from Comanche. Tuesday’s game against Marlow was cancelled.

The 10-inning game was a pitcher’s duel. Comanche used eight pitchers in the contest with only one pitcher, Dillon Ellis, going more than one inning.

Indian pitchers combined for 10 strikeouts, but the Comanche offense did not fare much better. The Indians managed just five hits in the game. Lone Grove had six.

The Longhorns grabbed an early 2-0 lead in the bottom of the third inning, but Comanche answered right back in the top of the fourth when Dillon Ellis singled in two runs to tie the game.

That would be it for scoring for either team for the next six innings until the Longhorns pushed a run across in the bottom of the 10th to get the win.

Dillon Ellis was the losing pitcher, giving up an earned run in 2-1/3 innings of work.

Dillon Ellis and Colby Shannon led Comanche at the plate with two hits each. Gunner King picked up the other hit for the Indians.

Comanche (23-10) will host Blackwell (5-21) in a bi-district tournament match-up. The games will be played at 1 p.m and 3 p.m. today (Thursday).

Comanche 5, Cache 3

Last Thursday, the Indians scored four runs in the top of the fifth to take the lead over Cache and they would never give it up.

Comanche scored five runs despite just having three hits in the game as they took advantage of three Cache errors and seven walks.

Dillon Ellis went 2-for-4 at the plate to lead the Indians, while Gabe Diaz collected the other hit.

Brady Dobbins picked up the win on the mound in relief as he tossed the final four innings. He struck out seven, gave up four hits, one walk and one earned run.

Bryson Evans, Gabe Diaz, Myles Ellis and Brady Dobbins all had one hit each.

Lucas Gordon was the winning pitcher as he came in in the second inning. He went 2-1/3 innings, giving up four hits and a run with one walk.
