Ending a losing streak is always a good thing.
And thatâ€™s especially true when you do it in the way Sweetwaterâ€™s baseball team did here Monday.
Losers of six straight, the Mustangs found themselves staring at a 6-0 deficit when they came to bat in the bot-tom of the sixth inning in their game with Andrews.
But Sweetwater came up with five runs in their half of the frame, then scored the winning runs in the bottom of the seventh on a single and four walks â€” the last coming with the bases loa-ded â€” to win 7-6.
Thanks to a second-place finish in the 148-pound weight class, Donald Baker is advancing to Abilene where he will represent the Sweetwater boys at the state powerlifting meet later this month.
Bakerâ€™s total lift in the three categories â€” squat, bench press and dead lift â€” at the regional meet held Saturday at Sundown High School was 1,085 pounds.
Baker, a senior, will be making his first appear-ance at the state meet.
