Bearcats blank Wyatt in district rout
Aledo right-hander Chris Reed pitched a shutout on Thursday, as the Bearcats hosted O.D. Wyatt in a District 7-4A baseball game and, thanks to the Aledo bats, only had to throw five innings to earn the 11-0 blanking. An explosion of seven runs in the bottom of the fourth spelled doom for the Chaps, who were unable to figure out Reed, who held Wyatt to a single hit and fanned nine in the 15-out appearance.
Luke Glover and Connor Duer matched offensive productivity in the afternoon game, with both tallying three runs batted in on two hits.
Aledo bounces back in the district win column after a loss to South Hills on Monday, and will carry its 2-1 mark into its next district contest against Western Hills on Tuesday. On Saturday, the Bearcats will host Arlington Bowie in a non-district contest, set to start at 1:30 p.m.
