HS Baseball Roundup: Iowa Park Avenges Loss to Hirschi

On March 22 the Hirschi Huskies won their District 6-3A opener at Iowa Park, their first district win in six years.

Friday the Hawks paid a visit to Hoskins Field and won their fifth straight since then with an 11-7 victory over the Huskies.

Lee Clubb had an RBI triple and scored on a throwing error on the play to give the Hawks a 3-1 lead in the second inning, then Dillan Ross lined one off the glove of a diving Adam Jackson in center field to make it 4-1.

Joe Barron answered that with a solo homer in the bottom of the second, his second RBI of the day to cut it to four to two, but the Hawks were able to pull away.

Iowa Park is now 5-1 in District play, tied for first with Graham, who beat Bowie 14-1 Friday night. The Hawks will visit Sherman in non-district play Saturday at 2 PM before hosting the Steers Tuesday night with first place in the district on the line.

Hirschi falls to 2-4 heading into a trip to Burkburnett Tuesday night.

Rider Runs Shutout Streak to Five

The Rider Raiders won their fourteenth straight game Friday night, shutting out Lake Dallas 15-0 in six innings to clinch a playoff spot.

Cameron Allen faced the minimum over six innings, allowing just a single which was erased on a double-play.

It was the fifth straight shutout for Rider, who has scored 55 runs in those games.

Gage Green was the hitting star, as the coach's son was 3/5 with six runs batted in and two runs scored.

The Raiders (21-5, 8-0) will be back home Tuesday night as they host Denton Ryan at 7 PM.

After Denton scored twice in the top of the first inning, Old High rallied for four in the bottom of the inning. Bucky Daws drove in Griffin Russell to make it 2-1, then scored on a bases-loaded walk.

Eric Cantu then brought in two more runs with a liner up the middle to make it 4-2.

After Denton tied it and sent it to extra innings, Clayton Shaw led off the eighth with a double, moved to third on a sacrifice fly, then came in to score the winning run on an overthrow to third.
