Bullock drives in four runs, Mason wins first varsity start in Rams’ 10-3 victory

By TONY EIERDAM

Cameron Bullock drove in four runs and reached base three times and Paden Patino stroked a pair of hits and scored three runs to lead the Mineral Wells Rams to a 10-3 victory over Bridgeport Thursday afternoon at the North Texas Rotation Tournament at Pratt Field in a game called by time limit in the sixth.

The Rams will play twice today – at 11 a.m. against Saginaw Chisholm Trail and at 4 p.m. against Sanger – before finishing the tournament at 4 p.m. Saturday at Decatur.

McCain Mason started on the mound for the Rams and earned the win, allowing two earned runs on three hits with three walks and six strikeouts in 4-1/3 innings.

Colby Kissinger finished on the hill, allowing one hit and striking out one in 1-2/3 innings.

Rams head coach Bret Barrick was pleased with Mason’s outing, and equally happy about Kissinger’s mound appearance.

“McCain threw a lot of strikes and he didn’t have very many walks,” Barrick said. “He did what we want all of our pitchers to do – pound the strike zone and make the batter put the ball in play.

“We let Colby throw a bullpen session the other day to see what he has. We need emergency pitching when we play five games in three days in tournaments.

“Colby looked really good in his session, so when we got a 10-3 lead we wanted to see what he could do in a game. He came in and competed and wore out the bottom of the strike zone. We couldn’t have asked for anything more.”

Bridgeport scored an unearned run in the top of the first inning but the Rams came back with two runs in the bottom of the second. Patino led off with a single and advanced to third base when the next batter, Bullock, reached on an error.
