Wildcats fall to Cedar Park in decisive Game 3

BELTON — Two days after a gut-wrenching walk-off defeat, Temple responded in the resilient manner its second-year head coach Toby Rumfield predicted and promptly evened its Class 5A area-round series Saturday afternoon against Cedar Park with a 5-2 victory in Game 2 behind a clinical offensive and pitching display from Eli Mendoza. The win set […]

Temple gives up 3-1 lead in final inning of stunning loss

BELTON — With their team one strike from victory, Temple fans were applauding in anticipation of Reid Hesse’s pitch to Cedar Park’s Austin Hewitt. In a blink — or a bloop — it all unraveled for the Wildcats minutes later at Mary Hardin-Baylor’s Red Murff Field. Hewitt dropped a shallow single into right field, unleashing […]

Temple’s boisterous dugout grows as asset through season

Familiarity with the Disney-Pixar animated movie “Finding Nemo” isn’t a requirement for appreciating the enthusiasm that spills from the Temple dugout when the Wildcats are at-bat.

Temple caps bi-district sweep with Myers’ walk-off hit

MANSFIELD — Temple’s Noah Myers had the count in his favor and swung late through a 3-1 fastball. He gathered himself, as he usually does between pitches, and stepped back into the batter’s box.

Flores’ flexibility in Temple’s lineup an added boost

Jonathan Flores spent the summer playing baseball, much like most of his summers dating back to when his age had yet to reach double digits. This past summer, though, Flores was coming off his sophomore season with Temple’s baseball team and had an agenda, or perhaps more appropriate a to-do list, during the months that […]

Temple rolls in regular-season finale, beats Bryan 10-4

Depending on postseason scheduling, Friday night might have been the final game at Hallford Field for Temple baseball senior standouts such as Reid Hesse, Dylan Cheek, Zach Rumfield and Hunter Torrez. Junior Eli Mendoza and sophomore Jared Wiley certainly provided big sparks to help the Wildcats surge into the Class 5A playoffs with positive momentum. […]

Temple staves off Waco, moves to cusp of postseason berth

Jared Wiley’s offensive adventures Tuesday night began with an unsuccessful attempt to bunt his way on base and ended with a flailing swing for strike three against puzzling Waco pitcher Juan Rodriguez.
