Justin Lewis pitched a one-hitter last Friday to lead Sachse baseball to its first district victory of 2016, a 7-2 triumph at Garland.
The win, which included a three-run rally in the top of the seventh to salt the game away, improved the Mustangs’ overall record to 13-6 and 1-1 in 11-6A. The district season began with a 4-0 home loss on March 15 to Tyler Lee, a contest in which the Mustangs got just two hits. Logan Worswick recorded five strikeouts in five-and-a-third innings of work in that game.The Mustangs were scheduled to host North Garland on Tuesday and will play 7 p.m. tonight at Rockwall. After the Easter holiday break, the Mustangs resume action Tuesday, March 29 at home against Naaman Forest.
Besides just giving up one hit last Friday, Lewis fanned 12 Owls in seven complete innings on the mound. Sachse produced six hits at the plate, and took advantage of three Garland errors. Drew Zapata, Mychal Fry and Parker Simmons each had an RBI.

That improved Sachse’s overall record to 4-13 and 3-3 in 11-6A, the latter of which includes a 13-2 loss March 15 at Rockwall.

Pitcher Sarah Wheeler earned the win, while holding the Lady Rangers to one hit.
Besides homering, McBroom also doubled, as did Emilee McDonald (twice) and Victoria Ochoa. McBroom also had two of Sachse’s four hits in the Rockwall loss.
As of Friday’s results, Sachse was fourth in 11-6A behind Rowlett, Garland and Rockwall. The top-four teams will make the postseason.
