Sometimes a team just has an off night.
That’s the way it was for the Uvalde Lobos who lost a 6-2 decision to the San Antonio Harlandale Indians Monday at the Uvalde High School softball field.
The Lobos outhit the Indians, 12-10, and had runners in scoring position in every inning of the game.
Pitchers Denise Longoria and Megan Flores combined efforts to strike out 15 Harlandale batters.
And the Lobos committed only one defense error.
Despite all that, the Lobos suffered their first district loss of the season.
Base running errors and a lack of timely hits were a problem for the Lobos. In the first inning and the second inning, the Lobos had a base runners thrown out at third base.
The Lobos, who wound up stranding 10 base runners during the course of the ball game, left two runners on base in the fourth-, fifth-, and sixth inning.
