Stephenville was its own worst enemy in a 5-4 road loss to Glen Rose that drops the Jackets to 2-2 at the midway point of District 7-4A baseball play.
The Jackets suffered through three throwing errors and only one of the Tigers’ runs was earned.
Starter Mason Castleberry gave up two hits over 2.2 innings and struck out two batters but had five walks. Caleb Smith was solid in relief as he went 3.1 innings while striking out three and throwing 37 of 49 pitches for strikes.

Gabe Moore had a two-run home run to lead the Stephenville offense while Trace Morrison was 3-3 at the plate. Anthony Wehnert rapped a two-run single in the top of the seventh inning but the Jackets rally fell a run short of tying the game.
