Terry tosses no-no to move Maypearl 1 win from 3A state baseball tournament

CLEBURNE — Tanner Terry wasn’t just terrific on Thursday. The senior was literally unhittable.

Terry (12-0, 1.22 ERA) struck out eight (29-7) West Trojans and walked four for a 2-0 no-hit win in game 1 of the best-of-three 3A Region III championship. Terry also drove in a run to put (29-8) Maypearl on top 2-0 in the bottom of the fourth inning. 

Baley Ray singled to center field to plate Billy Teague in the bottom of the third inning for the game’s first run. Teague reached on a one-out double to left field. 

West starting pitcher Landon Campbell took the hard-luck loss, allowing two earned runs on three hits with five walks and four strikeouts. He was credited with a complete game (6.0IP). 

Game two is slated for 7 p.m. Friday in Cleburne. Game three, if necessary, will follow suit with a 7 p.m. first pitch on Saturday in Cleburne.

West entered Thursday having rolled through the 3A postseason unscathed — sweeping Corsicana Mildred, Troy, Lorena and Diboll to reach the regional final.

After defeating rival Grandview (4-1) to win the outright District 17-3A championship on April 29, Maypearl has won 9-of-its-10 postseason games. The run includes sweeps of Blooming Grove (bi-district) and Little River (regional quarterfinal).

Maypearl also defeated Cameron Yoe in three games, sandwiching a 5-1 loss between 4-1 and 11-1 victories.

Maypearl last advanced to the state baseball tournament in 2005, only that run came in Class 2A. Those Panthers fell to Holliday, 3-1, and finished the season 28-9. 

The current Panthers have already bested that win total. It’s a party.
