The Brownwood Lions snapped a two-game skid by chalking up a 6-4 victory over the Ranger College JV Friday at Morris Southall Field.
Trailing by four runs heading to the bottom of the third inning, Brownwood did all its damage in that frame.
Brownwood's third began with Reece Rodgers and Cain Kittrell both reaching on errors, then the third miscue of the frame allowed Rodgers to tally the first run. With one out, Gavon Clemons reached on Ranger's fourth error of the inning, which permitted Kittrell to score and cut the deficit in half, 4-2.
Carlos Benites reached on the fifth error of the third, which occurred ahead of Caleb Hernandez's RBI single that plated Clemons. With two outs, Grayson Swanzy delivered the go-ahead two-RBI double to left field that knocked in Benites and Hernandez for a 5-4 Lion advantage.
Isyah Campos then reached base on Ranger's sixth error of the inning, which allowed Swanzy to come home with the sixth run.
The Lions finished with just three hits but made the most of Ranger's eight errors. Along with Swanzy's double, Hernandez and Rodgers singled.
Mason Ryden started on the mound and worked 4.1 innings, yielding four runs - three earned - on eight hits with four walks and two strikeouts to tally the win. Clemons picked up the save, giving up one hit with three strikeouts over 2.2 innings.
The Lions (15-7, 2-2), who slipped from first to third in District 5-4A following its two losses in a row, will host Lampasas at 7 p.m. Tuesday before returning to league play at home against Big Spring at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
