Hawks get feathers ruffled in 12-2 loss

HARLINGEN — From cold bats to solid Brownsville Lopez defense, nothing went right for the Harlingen South Hawks in their latest District 32-6A contest.

After the Hawks recorded just two hits and committed five errors, the Lobos took advantage and cruised to a 12-2 win in six innings on Tuesday night at Harlingen Field.

Aside from a seven-run top of the fifth inning that cushioned the Lobos’ lead, it was the arm of pitcher Alex Olguin that gave the Hawks trouble. Olguin picked up the win after allowing just two hits while striking out eight and tossing five scoreless innings.

“He had South off-balance tonight,” Lopez head coach Victor Martinez said. “That’s a pretty good ballclub coach (Tony) Leal has over there. We kept them off balance, which is good on our side, and we had the bats going tonight.”
