Uvaldeans win a 10-9 thriller
It was a wild one in game one of the Uvalde-Highlands softball playoff series Thursday night.
The Uvalde Lobos held off a seventh-inning comeback bid by the Highlands Owls to record a 10-9 win.
With one out in the seventh inning, Kenya Coleman dropped a single into shallow right center field to begin a Highlands rally.
Relief pitcher Anahi Ramirez struck out the next batter, before Kristyn Canales reached base on a walk.
