Lobos corral Mustangs for 5-3 win in game two of series

james volz|leader-news Megan Flores goes into her windmill windup and prepares to fire the softball toward home plate. Her pitch came during the first inning of game two of the Uvalde-King playoff series. The freshman lefthander went the distance in Uvalde’s 5-3 victory.

Kylie Sendejo ripped a double down the left field foul line to drive in what proved to be the winning runs as the Uvalde Lobos beat the Corpus Christi King Mustangs, 5-3, in game two of their Bi-district softball series last Saturday.

Playing amid hot, humid weather conditions at the Poteet High School softball field, the Lobos got off to an early 2-0 lead.

They scored one run in the second inning and then extended in the third inning when Denise Longoria hit a shot over the right center field fence for a solo home run.

King gained the scoring lead in the fourth inning as they plated three runs.

Alyssa Perez hit a two-run homer and Chastity DeLeon hit a solo homer to give the Mustangs a 3-2 advantage.

King’s lead was short-lived as the Lobos rallied to score one run in their part of the fifth inning.

“We had some exceptional play. Our girls showed a lot of character to win this game after King came back to take the lead,” said Uvalde High School head softball coach Giovanni Gonzalez.
