GLEN ROSE — The Brownwood Lions finished play in the Glen Rose baseball tournament with a 2-2 record, suffering their second straight loss to the Grandview Zebras, 12-3, Saturday afternoon.
Brownwood opened the tournament with Thursday wins over Springtown, 13-3, and Carrollton Ranchview, 12-4, then suffered a 17-7 loss to host Glen Rose Friday.
Against Grandview, the Lions gave up six runs in the top of the first inning and two more in the second before tallying their first run in the bottom of the second. Grandview extended its advantage to 12-1 in the third before Brownwood tacked on two more runs in the fourth.
Brownwood managed just two hits — a double by Gavin Clemons and a single by Blaine Hughes — but drew seven walks — two by Rylan Reagan and one apiece by Cain Kittrell, Grant Fanara, Hayden Donahoo, Colby Coppic and Hunter Leonard.
On the mound, Justin Buchanan worked one inning and allowed eight runs — six earned — on six hits with four walks and one strikeout. Dylan Agan also pitched an inning and yielded three runs on one hit with three walks and two strikeouts. Fanara tossed two innings and surrendered an unearned run on one hit with two walks and a pair of strikeouts.
The Lions scored in the second inning on an RBI ground out by Grayson Swanzy that plated Leonard, who walked and moved to second and third base on a pair of passed balls.
Brownwood’s two runs in the fourth scored when Fanara reached on an error in left field, allowing Clemons, who doubled, and Kittrell, who walked, to come home.
The Lions (3-6) return to action at 3 p.m. Thursday at the Lampasas tournament where they face Jarrell.
