Lions close gap on Tigers in 16-4A race

Ennis grinds out crucial victory on home turf
Trailing Corsicana by a couple of games for the final playoff spot entering Monday night, Lion baseball faced a must-win.
Ennis (10-8, 4-6) got the job done, pulling within one game by virtue of a 2-1 victory. The Lions plated a run in the first and third innings, while a single run in the fourth inning was all for the visitors. Ennis out-hit Corsicana 7-4 as each team committed two errors.
“We had to have an attitude to come out and go for the win,” said shortstop Tyler Hobbs.
“Everybody believes we can go out there and win these games.”
On the hill, Nathan Dixon (7 IP, 1 ER, 4 H, 3 W, 8 SO) went the distance.
“I had a lot of trouble locating my fastball and feel fortunate to get the win,” Dixon said.
“I mainly felt good about my slider; you have to find something that’s working. I’d get behind in the count, but just try to fight back. We had real solid defense [Monday] and I’m proud of those guys for being sharp.”
Corsicana put a man on base in every inning but the fifth, so coach Kevin Kalinec was pleased to see Dixon work out of several jams.
