MIDLOTHIAN — It’s a night that Midlothian baseball player Dillon Fowler is certainly never going to forget as he earned his first walk-off homerun in an 11-0 run rule season opener against Arlington Seguin, Monday.
It was part of a 12-hit assault against Seguin, which was also playing its first game of the year.
“I have never won a game like that, it was a pretty good feeling when I hit the ball,” Fowler said of his three-run dinger to end the game.
He also contributed on defense in the fourth inning, keeping the Seguin base runners at bay at first and second when a deep center field hit went in his direction.
The Panthers scored five runs in the third inning on four hits.
The onslaught continued in the fifth inning when Chase Watts started the inning with a left field single but advanced to second on an outfield error.
Rick Stover followed with a center field triple.
Among the Panthers to score two runs were Marshall Dudley, Fowler, Watts and Stover. All of them went 2-of-3 at the plate.
Blake Webster notched the win.
