Edgar's picture


With a team batting average of .395, the Hughes Springs Mustangs made quick work of the Mount Vernon Tigers in the Bi-District playoff round, winning 12-9 after jumping out to a quick three run lead in the first inning before coasting the rest of the way.

Alex Bruce was on the mound and, after a shaky first inning, was rock solid, allowing only four hits on the night while striking out nine batters. Bruce walked the leadoff batter and was able to get two ground outs, but the Tigers runner was able to score on a grounder to second base that couldn’t get the runner in time, allowing the runner to score from third. After that hiccup Bruce, was stellar and allowed the Mustang offense to work its magic.
