Yet another sacrifice fly ball, this one by Chase Zamarron, provided another run in the fourth, but Swain & Company already had more than enough runs to take care of North Crowley. Swain pitched a complete game in the 1-hit victory, fanning seven batters and issuing no free passes. He took care of the Panthers with just 68 pitches.
At 3-1 in district play, the Roos travel to play Lamar on Tuesday, returning home on Friday against Arlington Sam Houston.
