Temple vs. University 037

WACO — Temple’s Jonathan Flores singled, stole second, went to third on a sacrifice bunt and scored nine pitches into Friday night’s game against Waco University. The Wildcats tallied once more in the first inning for a quick two-run lead.

After two District 18-5A baseball outings during which Temple was held to one run and seven hits in losses to College Station and Bryan, the early burst signaled the start of a return to normalcy. By the time the Wildcats turned a 4-6-3 double play at Veterans Memorial Field for the final two outs in a convincing 8-0 victory, that notion was validated.

“We had fun. That’s what makes the difference in baseball,” said Flores, who went 3-for-4, scored three times and had two stolen bases. “We loosened up and realized that we have to have fun, and that’s what this team is all about.”

The Wildcats (15-6, 4-3), currently in fourth place with key games next week against College Station A&M Consolidated (fifth) and Bryan Rudder (third), opened the second half of district much like they did the first, controlling the Trojans. Instead of T.J. Rumfield throwing a shutout, it was Reid Hesse this time around. Though Rumfield certainly left his mark on Friday’s contest as well.
