(March 12, 2016) — Stephenville knocked off Bowie, 6-2, and Henrietta, 5-3, on Saturday, completing a run of five straight wins in a weekend-long classic.

Stephenville broke open a scoreless tie with four runs in the top of the fourth, saw its advantage cut in half in the bottom of the same inning, then finished the tally with two in the fifth against Bowie.

Easton Jones was 1-for-2 with a walk, three runs driven in and a run scored while also earning the win on the mound. The sophomore pitched five innings, allowing two runs on three hits. He struck out nine and walked just two.

Sam Weber was 2-for-3 with two runs driven in for the Jackets, while Colby Storrs also had a hit and an RBI.

At Henrietta, Stephenville did something it had not been forced to do all weekend – come from behind. The Jackets trailed 2-0 after the first, cut the deficit in half in the second, then took over with four runs in the top of the fifth. Henrietta scored one, but not enough, in the bottom of the seventh.

Sam Weber worked 5.2 innings of relief, surrendering just one run on three hits to earn the win. Caleb Gibbons had a two-run double and Sam Weber also drove in a run. The Yellow Jackets added two more scores with the help of five Henrietta errors.

Stephenville has its home opener on Tuesday when Kennedale visits James T. Young Baseball Field at 7 p.m.
