Any struggles the Indians had at the plate Tuesday night against Mansfield Summit were left at home.
Waxahachie plated 10 runs on 10 hits and capitalized on five Jaguar errors to defeat Summit on the road Friday night, 10-4.
Trevor Mott picked up the win on the bump after coming on in relief of Campbell Sullivan in the second inning. Mott allowed just one hit, walked five and struck out four over his 5.2 innings of work. Sullivan was pulled after allowing four earned runs on one hit with five walks and a strikeout.
Omar Camacho was charged with the loss for the Jaguars. He allowed six runs over four innings in relief of starter Alex Vetrano.
In total, eight Indians recorded hits. Peyton Graham and Jordan fay led the way with two hits, each. Jovanny Mijares (2B), Will Morgan (2B), and Nate Jones (3B) all slugged extra-base hits. Mijares led the team with four RBIs.
In the top of the first inning, Alex Vetrano threw seven-straight balls before finding the strike zone for the first time while staring at a 3-0 count to Campbell Sullivan with Peyton Graham already on first base. Will Morgan capitalized on the two free passes when he laced a double to straightaway center field for a 2-0 Waxahachie lead.
Jovanny Mijares was hit by a pitch with the bases full of Indians to plate a third Waxahachie run in the top of the first inning.
Campbell Sullivan started for the Indians on the bump and sat down the Jaguars in order in the bottom half of the first inning — thanks largely in part to a Graham-Mijares-Ryan Allen double play.
The second inning was a different story, though. Sullivan recorded a quick strikeout and then issued back-to-back free passes. He eventually surrendered a single into center field to load the bases.
Sullivan issued his third walk of the inning to plate the first Jaguar run of the ballgame. He then issued his fourth walk — and fifth of the ballgame — to the next Jaguar batter. The base-on-balls ended Sullivan’s night with the bases still loaded and Waxahachie leading 3-2.
Trevor Mott came on in relief and promptly issued the third-consecutive Indian base-on-balls to tie the game at three. Mott eventually recorded a strikeout to retire the Summit side but not before the Jaguars took a 4-3 lead thanks to a sacrifice fly.
The run-scoring excitement subdued for the next inning and a half until Joey Trevino went with an outside pitch to line a two-out single into right field in the top of the fourth inning. The single scored Graham and tied the game at four.
The Indians then loaded the bases on a Summit error. Jordan Fay capitalized on the very next pitch with a two-run single for his first two RBIs on the season and a 6-4 Waxahachie lead.
Mijares doubled down the right-field line for a two-run double to double-up the Jaguars, 8-4.
The Indians tacked on two more runs in the sixth and seventh inning via a Mijares safety squeeze and Nate Jones' triple to deep, left-center field.
The Indians are now 6-9-1 on the season and 1-1 in District 10-5A after splitting the regular-season series with Mansfield Summit.
Waxahachie returns to action with a two-game series against Red Oak next Tuesday and Friday. Game on is in Red Oak and game two is at Paul Richards Park. Both games are scheduled for a 7 p.m. first pitch.
