RALLS – The Ralls Jackrabbits did just enough to squeeze out a 5-1 win over the Floydada Whirlwinds on Tuesday at Dag Azam Field. Ralls maintains second place in the 3-2A baseball standings, while Floydada is still holding on to its playoff hopes in fourth place.

The Jackrabbits scored in three different innings highlighted by a three run tally in the bottom of the third inning. Floydada loaded the bases in two separate innings and came away emptied handed each time as they struggled to get a timely hit.

Saul Reyes and Juan Gonzales each had one single for Floydada. Donovan Rocha suffered a disappointing loss on the mound by giving up four hits, two walks and recorded seven strikeouts.

Floydada and Ralls will play Game 2 of their 3-2A series on Friday at Watson Field. First pitch will be at 5:00 p.m. 106.1 FLiP FM will have the radio broadcast.
