Walkoff hit in 8th ends SW’s season

May 20, 2013

LUBBOCK — One day, maybe soon, the members of the Sweetwater baseball team will step back and realize what an amazing season they’ve had.
But now that it has finally ended, most of them prob-ably think they should still be playing.
After rallying from a 4-0 deficit to take leads of 5-4 and 6-5 late in Saturday’s contest, the Mustangs simply couldn’t put Andrews away in their Region I-3A quarterfinal series at Lubbock Christian University.

Sweetwater faces playoff-tested rival for berth in final 16

May 17, 2013

Sweetwater is one of 32 baseball teams who are still alive in the Class 3A high school playoffs. But in order to make it to the Sweet 16, it will have to knock off an Andrews squad that is in the playoffs for the 19th consecutive year.
That equals the number of years that Roland Herrera has been a head baseball coach, the last five of them at Sweetwater. But this is the first time in his tenure with the Mustangs to make it to the postseason.
Sweetwater (19-14) may be a “Cinderella” team, he admits, but they deserve to be here.

SW-Andrews III may not be able to match first two

May 16, 2013

The Sweetwater baseball team has played its share of exciting games this season. Four of the Mustangs’ five postseason games — and all four victories — have been decided by two runs or less.
Two of the most drama-tic finishes came in March against Andrews, which will play Sweetwater in a best-of-3 regional quarterfinal starting with Game 1 Friday at Lubbock Christian Uni-versity’s Hays Field. In both cases, the visiting team had a big early lead, only to see the home team rally and pull out a walk-off victory in the final inning.
