Bowie opened the game with seven runs in the top of the first and held off the Paradise Panthers for an 8-4 victory Tuesday.

Paradise (10-9-1) fell to 4-3 in District 8-3A and are in a three-way tie for fourth place – a game back of the trio league leaders, Jacksboro, Boyd and Bowie.

After Bowie scored the seven runs off Paradise starter Brad Young, Marshall Payton came on in relief and held Bowie to a run on four hits over six innings. He struck out 12 and walked four.

Down 8-1, Paradise scored three in the bottom of the third. Patrick Dorado came home on a wild pitch. Mitchell Sellers doubled in two runs.

Paradise could not get another run home, finishing with just three hits.
