Sandies edge Eagles on inside-the-park homer, 7-6
amarillo.com / Wed, 23 Apr 2014 04:05:29 +0000
It was almost a circus catch that possibly would have forced extra innings. Instead, it was an inside-the-park home run that ended the game and just about assured Amarillo High the District 3-4A title.
With one out in the bottom of the seventh inning of a tie game, Amarillo High’s J.T. Fogg hit a sinking liner to center that Canyon’s Owen Carver tried to dive and catch. But Carver couldn’t quite get to the ball, and it bounced past him and rolled all the way to the fence, allowing Fogg to come all the way around and score the winning run and give the Sandies a 7-6 victory.

Mavs need Nowitzki rebound to get even with Spurs

Dirk Nowitzki missed from several of his usual spots as Dallas blew a lead in the fourth quarter of its playoff-opening loss to San Antonio.
The Mavericks star even flubbed a glorified layup, the most surprising of all the misses when Dallas went without a meaningful basket for the final 8 minutes of the 90-85 loss to the Spurs.
Now Nowitzki has to bounce back from one of the worst playoff games of his 16-year career when the Mavericks play at San Antonio in Game 2 on Wednesday night.
