BRENHAM – The Blinn Buccaneers took advantage of four Wharton County errors Friday night in a 10-3 Region XIV Conference victory at Leroy Dreyer Field.
The Pioneers’ four errors led to six unearned runs while Buccaneer freshman Robert Dickey was sharp through seven innings. Dickey allowed one unearned run through seven innings, striking out four and walking one. The Pioneers managed just six hits against the right-hander from Austin Bowie.
Nolan Brown and Robert Garza each drove in two runs and Scott Jones went 3-for-5 with a triple.
Wharton County starter Adrian Silguero took the loss, allowing two earned runs over 5 1/3 innings.
J.C. Neighbors and Trent Rape each threw an inning of relief for Blinn.
The Buccaneers have now won three straight. They will look to continue that win streak Saturday, when they travel to Wharton for a 3 p.m. double-header.
