Hays was forced to rally in game two. But heavy rains in the area forced both teams to delay their game to Saturday. The delay didn't affect pitching, as Hays' Trey Dickerson and Pfluger- ville's Marcos Reyes du- eled. Dickerson went 9.2 innings, while Reyes went seven. But both pitchers kept the opposing offense in check. Reyes flummoxed Hays batters by using an effective army of off- speed pitches. Hays head coach David Null said struggles to hit ground balls also played a factor. Hays was unable to limit pop-ups and fly balls into a stiff breeze. "We were struggling in staying back long enough to stay on top of the ball," Null said. "We were reaching a bit and he had great offspeed stuff. He was effective today." Dickerson was equally effective, aggressively going after Pflugerville batters and limiting them to seven hits. He was helped out by a tenacious defense that battled past five errors on the day. Hays' defense came through in the eighth as the Rebels rectified a throwing error to gun down a potential game winning run at the plate. An inning later, Hays' third baseman Brandon Hunter turned a pivotal double play to close the bottom of the ninth. "Our defense was amazing," Dickerson said. "The underclassmen really stepped up in this game and showed great potential for next year. They did a hell of a job." But errors played a role in the demise of the Rebels in the tenth. An er- ror with two outs allowed Pflugerville to extend the inning for Pena, who delivered a walk-off single to win the game.
