Mustangs slam Eagles for sweep

May 5, 2014

DENVER CITY — They scored 21 runs in two games, answered every challenge Pecos threw their way and even belted their first home run of the season — a grand slam. And the pitching and defense, while not always rock-solid, were there when they had to be as well.
It all added up to a two-game sweep Saturday for Sweetwater, as the Mus-tangs completed a two-game sweep of Pecos with a 13-7 win in the teams’ best-of-3 Class 3A bi-district playoff.

Mustangs fight back, top Eagles in Game 1

May 5, 2014

DENVER CITY — A third inning that saw Sweetwa-ter’s ace pitcher, J.P. Poe, allow four runs and six hits in the team’s Class 3A bi-district series opener with Pecos was only a blip.
Sweetwater quickly tied it 4-4 by scoring four runs in the bottom of the inning on Friday. It didn’t stop there, as the Mustangs continued the assault by scoring four more runs over the next three innings. Poe, mean-while, regained his form en route to an 8-4 victory,
The decisive comeback meant that Sweetwater (19-9) needed just one more win on Saturday to advance to the area playoffs.

Mustangs to begin playoff run tonight

May 2, 2014

The 2014 baseball season has been an interesting one for Sweetwater.
In terms of overall wins and winning percentage, Sweetwater (18-9) has had its best season since Roland Herrera became head coach in 2009.
Yet it has been a struggle of late, with six losses in the team’s last nine games as the Mustangs, who made the playoffs for the second straight year, were only the No. 4 seed in District 4-3A.
But Herrera said that’s all in the past as Sweetwater begins a best-of-3 bi-district series with Pecos (18-8) at 7 p.m. today in Denver City.

In no particular order: Christopher Faith, Gavin Reyes, Carson Brownlow, Kurt Wetsel, Trenton Hicks...
