Shepherd 3 Splendora 2

April 27, 2014
Splendora High School

SHEPHERD, Tx. - Shepherd Senior pitcher Tyler Kolek possesses a fastball that is faster than most major league pitchers.  He had it going on Friday, clipping the 100 mph mark in a strong performance versus the Splendora Wildcats.

     The Wildcats (who had beaten Kolek earlier this season, 5-0), had trouble making solid contact with Kolek's heater, registering only 3 hits, in a 3-2 loss to the Pirates.  Splendora's Matt Jacquinot only gave up 4 hits, but one was a Kolek double in the top of the first that the Wildcats couldn't quite overcome.  Jacquinot struck out 5.

     Connor Phillips had a great day in the field for the 'Cats, turning a F4-3 double play and also had 1 of the Wildcat hits.  Philllips also got knicked by a Kolek fastball.  Third baseman Ty Nixon had a double and 'Cats Rightfielder Kolby Reed had a single for Splendora.

     With the score 3-2 in the 7th, Splendora threatened with a runner at 2nd and 1 out.  Kolek, sensing the 28 MLB scouts that came to see him perform, reached back for something extra and struck out the last 2 Wildcat hitters to end the threat.

     Splendora will represent District 22-3A as the runner-up and Shepherd will take the 3rd place spot.  Other District scores from Friday were: Huffman 4 Coldspring 0; Liberty 5 Cleveland 4; Tarkington was open.
