#1 Carroll Drops One-Game Playoff to Eagle Pass, 2-1

Three days after moving up to #1 in the state of Texas, the Carroll Tigers were ushered out of the Class 5A playoffs on Friday night after a 2-1 loss to Eagle Pass.

The one-game playoff series at San Antonio Burbank High School featured strong pitching on both sides, but turned on a clutch hit by Eagle Pass junior Carlos Barrera. His 4th-inning double scored teammate Diego Gaona from second base to give the Eagles their 2-1 margin of victory.

Carroll did flirt with sending the game to extra innings as Tiger outfielder Ryan Benavides came within a few feet of hitting a solo home run. Instead it wound up as the last out of the game.
