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.
ABILENE â€” Sweetwaterâ€™s Rangers took advantage of two critical mistakes by Abilene Easternâ€™s Braves to score the go-ahead fifth-inning run Wednesday in the teamsâ€™ District 5 Major League (11-12) semifinal.
Then Reese Hayes retired the last six hitters in order to complete a 6-5 win for the Rangers that sent them into the title game at 7 p.m. today. Hayesâ€™ twin brother, Rylan, scored the go-ahead run for the Rangers following a passed ball and a throwing error that went over the third basemanâ€™s head by Easternâ€™s catcher in the top of the fifth inning.
