Roos, Bearcats win district baseball openers

—  

Staff Reports

Weatherford 6, Bowie 3

The Kangaroos varsity baseball team erased a three-run deficit in their 2013 District 3-5A debut on Tuesday, putting up four runs in the bottom of the third inning against Arlington Bowie. The Roos offense added two more runs to win the opener, 6-3, at Raymond E. Curtis Field.

Weatherford starting pitcher Beau Burrows and the defense tightened the screws on the Volunteers’ hitters after the third frame, as Burrows faced the minimum of batters and struck out eight en route to the complete-game win.

The scoring in the four-run inning for WHS culminated with a three-run homer off the bat of outfielder Andy Rogers, who drove in Dustin Williams and Matt Riney. Williams had Weatherford’s first RBI in the inning when he singled in Tony Rodriguez, adding another RBI in the fifth frame with a solo homer, a line shot over the right field wall.

The Roos, undefeated through 12 games, take a break from district play later this week, playing in the Arlington Heights tourney on Thursday through Friday.

 

Aledo 3, Arl. Heights 2 

The Bearcats put up all of their runs in the second inning on Tuesday, hosting Arlington Heights in a District 7-4A opener, and held on to beat the Yellowjackets, 3-2.

Aledo took advantage of a pair of walks and a Heights error in the second frame, pushing three run across on the process. 

Colton Clanton started on the mound for Aledo and collected the win. Carter Cammack climbed the mound for middle relief, with Zayne Willems finishing the job to collect a save. Heights outhit the Bearcats, 6-3, but could only muster a single run in the fourth and fifth frames.

Aledo heads for its final tournament before resuming district play next week, heading west to play in the Abilene Tournament, slated for Thursday through Saturday.
