ABILENE â€” The District 5 Major League title game was tied 0-0 through two innings Thursday. But Abilene Easternâ€™s Nationals got three third-inning runs, and cruised from there to a 13-0 victory over Sweetwaterâ€™s Rangers at Cal Young Park.
Sweetwaterâ€™s only hit was Rylan Hayesâ€™ double, a booming drive to centerfield that led off the second inning. He was stranded after moving to third due to three straight strikeouts.
Though it was 0-0 at the time, the Nationals seized control. After three runs in the third, they pulled further ahead with two runs in the fourth to make it 5-0.
