Area baseball roundup for April 22, 2013

Memorial falls to West Brook

The Port Arthur Memorial baseball team saw its playoff hopes officially end Monday, as the Titans fell 4-1 to Beaumont West Brook in District 21-5A play.

Memorial (11-13, 3-8) could have finished in a tie with fourth-place Baytown Sterling by winning Monday and again on Friday.

Freshman Ramiro Sanchez started for the Titans, throwing 5 innings while allowing one run on two hits and striking out five.  Teammate Jonathan Sanchez relieved Ramiro, finishing the final 2 innings while allowing three runs on three hits with one strikeout.

Ramiro Sanchez and Jonathan Sanchez were each 1 for 3 at the plate while catcher Abraham Cuevas was 1 for 3.

The Titans finish the season Friday at Laporte at 7 p.m.

Nederland drops to Lumberton

NEDERLAND — The Nederland baseball team couldn’t get a victory on Senior Night, falling 4-3 to Lumberton in District 20-4A play.

Nederland (21-4, 11-2) clinched the district championship with last Friday’s victory over Beaumont Ozen coupled with Port Neches-Groves losing to Vidor. That meant Lumberton (8-5) had much more to play for on Monday, as the Raiders are still fighting to maintain one of the final two playoff spots from 20-4A.

Mitchell Sanderson started for the Bulldogs, throwing 3 2/3 innings while allowing three hits and one run. The right-hander struck out nine and walked one. Jared Ramoin threw 5 1/3 innings of relief, giving up five hits and three runs while striking out 10.

Lumberton’s Trey Godeaux threw a complete game, pitching 9 innings while allowing seven hits and three runs with five walks and two strikeouts.

Nederland will close out the season at Beaumont Central at 7 p.m. Friday.

PN-G clinches playoff spot with win

BEAUMONT — The Port Neches-Groves baseball team bounced back from a disappointing week by clinching a playoff spot on Monday. The Indians beat Beaumont Ozen 13-3 to lock up at least one of District 20-4A’s playoff spots with one game left to play.

PN-G (14-12, 9-4) can take the second seed outright with a victory Friday, when the Indians host Livingston at 7 p.m.
