Two weeks ago, life was sweet for the Sweetwater baseball team.
The Mustangs were 15-3 overall, had a 12-game win-ning streak and were 2-0 in district play.
But since that time, not much has gone Sweetwaterâ€™s way.
The team lost its third straight Friday, falling 7-4 to Snyder at Sportsmanâ€™s Park in a game that saw the Tigers push across five runs in the final two innings â€” largely due to miscues com-mitted by the Mustangs â€” in rallying back from a 3-2 deficit.
The Sweetwater softball team can be thankful that it probably wonâ€™t ever have to face Snyderâ€™s Adrianna Hernandez again.
The Lady Tigersâ€™ talented senior on Friday shut out the Lady Mustangs for the third straight time, and got plenty of offensive support as her team rolled to a 12-0, five-inning win.
Snyder improved to 6-0 in district with the win, while Sweetwater fell to 0-6. But the Lady Mustangs (9-12 overall) were at least able to avoid being no-hit by Hernandez a second time when Cierra Knox hit a two-out single past third base in the fourth inning.

After losing to Wylie last Friday, Sweetwaterâ€™s baseball and softball teams are home again to face Snyder today with both hoping to reverse their recent District 4-3A fortunes. The baseball team is 2-2 but has lost two straight; the softball team is off to an 0-5 district start.
