SNYDER â€” Suddenly, itâ€™s crowded at the top of the District 2-4A baseball standings with three teams â€” Sweetwater, Big Spring and Snyder â€” all at 4-1.
Sweetwater was on top all by itself after the Mustangs won their first four games, but an 8-3 loss to Snyder on Friday at Moffett Field changed that as Big Spring â€” an 18-5 loser to Sweetwater three nights earlier â€” also won 9-2 over Lamesa to forge a three-way tie.
Sweetwater was supposed to play softball at Snyder on Friday. But due to interfer-ence from Mother Nature that caused the teamsâ€™ first district meeting March 20 to be moved to Snyder when Sweetwaterâ€™s field was too wet to play on, the rematch Friday was played at the Jerry Collins Complex.
Sweetwater, which was a 12-1 loser in the first game, lost again on Friday, 9-3, to fall to 3-3 in district play.
