Mustangs Beat Tigers 3-0

By Austin Kimball

 

The Creekview Mustangs shut out the Terrell Tigers 3-0 Tuesday night at Creekview High School. Mustang pitcher Zac Rothert threw a complete game, striking out nine (on senior night).

 

The Mustangs entered the game tied for first place (w/ Highland Park), while the Tigers were just sitting one game behind with two more to play this season. 

 

Creekview went ahead 2-0 in the bottom of the 1st; Jamar Johnson scored on a Zac Rothert sac fly, and Preston Wall scored on a double to left by Will Millikin. The Mustangs also added a run in the 3rd.  

 

Right-hander Zac Rothert was unshakeable on the mound for Creekview, allowing no runs on only four hits, and two walks through seven innings. 

 

Rothert managed to escape a bases loaded situation in the top of the first, striking out two batters; Creekview gave up three errors on the game, allowing runners to reach scoring position in multiple innings, but were still able to hold the Tigers scoreless. 

 

Creekview (10-3) claims first place in Dist. 10-4A after Highland Park (9-4) lost a tough one at home to Newman Smith. The Mustangs will finish their regular season at North Forney this Friday.

 

GAME NOTES:

Z. Rothert (CHS) - 7 IP, 0 ER, 4 H, 2 BB, 9 K

  RBI sac fly (bottom 1st)

 

W. Milliken (CHS) - RBI double (bottom 1st)

Creekview Shows Strong Overall Game in Win vs Poteet

The Creekview Mustangs showed a bit of everything in their 4-3 win over Mesquite Poteet Friday night in Carrollton.  Solid pitching, a flash of offense, and maybe most impressive of all: resistance. 

Putcher Brandon White recorded the first and final outs of the game; notching a complete game gem.  It wasn’t always easy for him and his team, though.  Poteet scored one run in both the first and second inning to grab a 2-0 lead as White struggled with his command by walking two and hitting two batters in those two frames.  

The Mustang offense came to life in the 3rd with a 3-run inning fueled by an RBI single by Preston Wall and an 2-run triple by the pitcher White.  The Pirates would eventually cut the lead to 4-3 after a couple fielding errors by Creekview.  It was Brandon White’s night, though, as he finished strong in the 7th to wrap a Mustang win.

Creekview (8-7 overall, 4-0 in District 10-4A) next plays Tuesday, March 25th at Highland Park.
