Gose entering with a .170 and had not gotten an extra-base hit since homering on opening day.

Rebs, AHS square off today
amarillo.com / Fri, 29 Apr 2016 00:59:08 +0000

It’s not often that either team in any athletic contest between Tascosa and Amarillo High might be tempted to look ahead, but when the two baseball teams meet today at 5 p.m. at Sandie Field for the third and final time this season, that could happen.

For Tascosa, the game has little importance in the District 2-6A playoff picture. No matter what the Rebels (13-13, 1-9 in district) do today against their crosstown rivals, they’ll face a winner-take-all game at home against Lubbock Monterey on Saturday, with the district’s fourth and final playoff berth on the line.
