Taft puts up three runs in one inning

Under perfect skies Tuesday afternoon, the Taft varsity baseball team got their season off with a bang when they came back in the sixth inning to defeat the Farmersville Aztecs 5-2 at home.

Taft made the first move by scoring two runs in the last half of the first inning. Thanks to a pair of singles and a triple Farmersville tied the score in the top half of the third inning.

Neither team had a chance to score again until the bottom of the sixth inning. Led by Caleb Lopez's single to left field, the Wildcats erupted for three runs on only two hits to take the lead for good.

Harmer was 2-for-3 in the game with a run scored.
