GPHS Softball Battles Gulf Winds Against Galveston Ball

Varsity play began with a strong wind blowing in from the gulf that made fly balls quite the challenge for both teams but that had nothing to do with the Jackets’ first inning woes.  Back to back errors allowed two runs to score with two outs. Senior pitcher Bailey Richey would eventually get the third out with a K. However,  in a venue where Galena Park has never won before, the 2 – 0 lead seemed ominous. But this Jacket team came back fighting, lead by seniors determined not to be beaten. Richey tied the game in the third with a two run double. Galveston answered in the fifth, monopolizing on another Jacket error. Senior Ashley Colunga responded with a triple to lead off the top of the sixth. Freshman third baseman Elaine Gonzalez pushed her across to tie it again. The top of the seventh saw senior Kassandra Vargas lead off with a double. Senior Julia Vazquez traded places with her one pitch later. Vazquez would be left on third but the go ahead run was in. Now it was up to Bailey Richey and the G.P. defense to put it away as the top of Galveston’s order was coming up. Tension built. A strike out, a base hit, pop to short, and finally on the seventh pitch to the two hole batter…a grounder back to pitcher and the put out at first! The Jackets clinched a playoff berth with this win. All four seniors had a big night. Richey with eleven strike outs, two doubles, and two RBIs. Colunga with a perfect night at second base and a triple. Vargas claimed a double and the go ahead run. Vazquez was responsible for the game winning RBI double. But the fire to win was not limited to the seniors. The Jacket dugout got loud and was definitely a factor in gathering momentum. Elaine Gonzalez was fully aware of the importance of her game tying RBI in the fifth and served as this game’s sparkplug. Her exuberance ignited the team and fans alike. This was a difficult win against a hard fighting team but the Jackets took it 4 – 3.

 

 

GPHS Baseball Team Plays Texas City

On a windy and cool April Tuesday the Galena Park Yellowjackets plated more runs than the Stingarees of Texas City earning a 5-1 victory.  The Stingarees got their offense rolling early when a run was scored on a double.  Despite giving up an early run the pitcher, Jonathan Sunday and the defense stiffened getting out of the inning only one run down and leaving two stranded on the bases.  The Yellowjackets bats began to warm up in the bottom of the third when Julian Macias singled scoring G.P.’s first run of the game and tying the game 1-1.  What Macias started in the third Adam Salinas continued in the fourth on a single that scored two runs.  Aaron Rodriguez hit into a fielder’s choice, but scored a third run giving G.P. a 5-1 lead at the end of four.  Jonathan Sunday earned the win pitching five and two-thirds innings, allowing one run on four hits and striking out two.  Arnulfo Garcia threw one and one-third innings in relief.  Garcia recorded the last four outs to earn the save.  Julian Macias, Adam Salinas, Julian Lopez, Gilberto Rios, and Juan Castillo each collected one hit to lead the Jacket offense.
