A malfunction with the lights at the Newman Park high school field prevented Sweetwater from playing its District 5-3A baseball game against Brownwood Tues-day night.
But when the game was finally played Wednesday, it was a different kind of Sweetwater malfunction that helped the Lions leave town with a 9-2 victory.
Four Mustang errors al-lowed Brownwood (2-0 in district) to score seven un-earned runs off Sweetwater pitcher Kris Mayes, who took the loss despite strik-ing out 12 in seven innings as his team fell to 0-2 in district and 10-12-1 overall.
The Roscoe JV boys had 130 points for a second-place finish and Highlandâ€™s JV boys scored 44 points for a fourth-place team finish at the Roby track meet.

After averaging eight runs in its first two district games and scoring 19 in an easy win over Crane on Friday, a high-scoring Sweetwater softball team entertained first-place Brownwood here Tuesday with a chance to really make a statement.
But the Lady Lions were the only ones scoring runs, while competely shutting down Sweetwaterâ€™s offense to win, 8-0, at the Jerry Collins Softball Complex.
Tuesdayâ€™s scheduled 7 p.m. District 5-3A baseball contest at Newman Park between Sweetwater and Brownwood was can-celled because of lighting problems at the park, according to Sweetwater coach Roland Herrera. The game has been rescheduled for today starting at 4:30 p.m.
