The Clark baseball team pushed their district record to 2-0 on Tuesday, but it took 12 innings to get there. The Cougars built an 11-4 lead through three innings against Marshall, but a 7 run 6th inning by the Rams left the teams tied at 11. Each team got one run in the 7th leading to a 12-12 tie and extra innings. It wasn’t until Clark got the winning run in the 12th inning that the marathon finally ended. Chad Dullnig was on the mound to get the win for the Cougars.
The district game followed a weekend of up and down tournament action bringing the Cougars season record to 3-3-1. Up next is the Northeast ISD tourney starting Thursday and running through Saturday at Blossom.
Clark softball played for the championship of the East Central-Judson Tournament last weekend, eventually losing to Corpus Christi Tuloso-Midway to take second place. On Tuesday they faced off against Brandeis in their 3rd district game of the young season and came up a run short, losing 6-7. This brings the Cougars district record to 2-1 and their season record to 6-3. They play again Friday at 5:00 against Jay at Northside.
