In the first game of their bi-district championship series, the baseball team fell to Ysleta 10-2, with most of Ysleta’s runs coming by capitalizing on Bowie’s defensive mistakes.

“Now that we have seen what they can do in all aspects of the game, we can adjust our game and put on a stronger performance for the next game,” Carlos Varela, 11, said.

Bowie’s batting became better as the game progressed, but Ysleta’s batting proved to keep the Bears away, as they finished the game with three runs after holding a 7-2 lead. Bowie took back a few runs, but the momentum remained on the Indian’s side.

“I feel like we are capable of playing a better game this time around, so we will look at how we played in game one, change a few things and be ready for game onr, because our season depends on it,” Varela said.

A couple of line drives into the far outfield brought in runners to home plate in the early innings, as they took a 6-0 lead by the fourth inning. Ysleta started the early part of the game strong, as they left five of Bowie’s runners stranded on base to end innings.

Bowie will try to force a game three Saturday as they play to keep their season alive at 6 p.m. tonight at Ysleta High School.
