LEADING THE PACK Golden Tor head baseball coach Jacob Hernandez watched his sluggers get a big District 2-4A baseball road win Tuesday night at Seminole.

The Golden Tornado baseballers not only kept their post-season hopes intact, but also enjoyed a little revenge in the process on Tuesday night at Seminole.
After falling to the Indians 8-2 here a couple of weeks ago at Joe Spikes Field, the Tor baseballers put it all together again on Tuesday night in Gaines County and came home with the big 7-2 District 2-4A diamond victory.
“This is one game we had to get. Right now, we’re not afraid to say that our season pretty much depended on this one here tonight,” Golden Tor Coach Jacob Hernandez said.
“Tonight is just terrific! It was a total team effort, too. Defensively, our guys played another great ball game. We didn’t make any errors. Our pitching was there again, but really our pitching’s been there the last four ball games for us. We got big hits when we really needed them, too.”
With Tuesday’s big victory, the Golden Tor baseballers  are now 8-12-1 on the year, including 4-4 that is good for a share of third place in the current District 2-4A diamond standings going into the final two games of the regular season.
Tuesday’s other 2-4A baseball games saw Levelland hold off Denver City, 5-4, and Brownfield top Lubbock Estacado, 8-4. At 7-1, Levelland is alone at the top of that pack. Lubbock Estacado is now 5-3, while Lamesa and Brownfield are tied for third at 4-4. Denver City is 3-5, while Seminole is now 1-7. The top four ball clubs a the end of the regular season will advance on to the Class 4A state playoffs.
“There’s a good chance that  it’s all going to come down to that last ball game next Tuesday night,” Coach Hernandez said.
