Woodland baseball unable to rally past Carrollton in opener

Posted

A seventh-inning rally came up just short, as the Woodland baseball team dropped its season opener by a 3-2 score Wednesday at Carrollton.

After the Trojans claimed an early lead with one run in the first inning and two in the second, the Wildcats limited the hosts to just a pair of singles the rest of the way.

Meanwhile, Woodland's best chance to get back in the game came in the top of the final frame.

Scotty Smith singled to open the seventh, and Trevor Montgomery was hit by a pitch. Jacob Gravett followed with an RBI double to get the Wildcats on the board.

A sacrifice fly by Ayden Ray helped Woodland cut the deficit to one run, but a courtesy runner for Gravett was thrown out trying to advance to third on the play. With the bases suddenly empty, a groundout to the catcher allowed Carrollton to escape with the win.

Gravett finished with half of the Wildcats' four hits.

Drew Billings and Smith pitched well in relief, limiting the Trojans to two hits and no walks with four strikeouts over three innings.
