Now that’s more like it.
Fresh off a first round sweep of Brownsville Hanna, the San Benito Lady ’Hounds are back in familiar territory and they’ll face a very familiar foe.
The Lady ’Hounds (27-2) will now take on the Edinburg North Lady Cougars (26-4) in a Class 5A area round best-of-three series. Game 1 is at Lady ’Hound Field on Friday night at 7 p.m. The series then shifts to Edinburg North High School for Game 2 on Saturday at noon. If a third and decisive game is necessary, it will be played 30 minutes after the conclusion of the second contest.
The winner of this series will face either Eagle Pass or Brownsville Porter in the regional quarterfinals next weekend.
Against Hanna, the bats came alive for the Lady ’Hounds, especially at home in Game 1. The long ball was in play as Dorothy Millan (2-for-4) belted a grand slam while Cynthia Rodriguez (2-for-3) added a two-run shot. Dina Treviño was also 2-for-4 while Mel Ramirez was 2-for-3 at the plate.
