Mustangs steal their way to next round of playoffs

May 6, 2013

CRANE — Game 3 of the best-of-3 bi-district playoff between Sweetwater and Fabens was tied 6-6 in the top of the seventh inning on Saturday. The Mustangs had the go-ahead runner, Bray Amos, at third base with Shawn Campbell at bat and looking at a 2-2 count with two outs.
But then, all of a sudden, Amos streaked for home as Fabens pitcher Eric Ochoa was still in his windup.
Amos scored, Sweetwater was suddenly up 7-6, and all that was left was for Mus-tang pitcher Cole Maxwell to get three more outs.

LUBBOCK — Sweetwater got the first hit in Friday’s Region I-3A area softball playoff game with Pampa on a one-out single by Mor-gan Gomez in the bottom of the first inning.
But it took the Lady Mus-tangs another five innings to get their second hit, and by then Pampa was firmly in control as the Lady Har-vesters ended Sweetwater’s year with a 5-0 victory.

‘Stangs hold off Fabens for win in Game 1

May 6, 2013

CRANE — Despite some missed opportunities, the Sweetwater baseball team got its first playoff series in nine years off to a success-ful start Friday.
But the Mustangs’ 5-4 bi-district win over Fabens in Game 1 of their best-of-3 series was suspenseful right down to the end.
Sweetwater stranded 10 runners in the contest, nine of them in the last four in-nings, but still was able to rally from a brief 3-2 defi-cit — and guarantee itself two chances Saturday at Crane High School’s field to advance to the Class 3A area playoffs next week.
