Cassie Cummings staked Wylie (9-14 overall, 2-3 district) to a two-run lead in the first with her two-run shot that hit a truck just beyond the fence in left.
Sweetwater (2-4 district), however, countered with four runs on seven hits in the bottom of the inning. Kelsi Crosson had an RBI double and scored on Alicia Finn's two-run homer to center field. Kinsey Browning capped the inning with an RBI single.
The Lady Bulldogs sent 11 batters to the plate in a five-run third to go ahead 7-4. Wylie's first four batters had a hit, including an RBI triple by Melyssa Lunsford and an RBI single by Yarbrough. Middleton added an RBI single, and West capped the inning with a two-run double.
Sweetwater cut the lead to 7-5. Taylor McKoy reached on a bunt single in the fifth and took second on a throwing error on the play. She took third when Browning reached on an error, and McKoy scored on Angela Garcia's one-out fielder's choice.
The Lady Mustangs will be off on Monday and Tuesday, but will return to action on Friday.
