The Kingwood High School baseball team remained undefeated in District 21-6A play last week after wins over Summer Creek and Baytown Sterling.
The Mustangs improved to 6-0 in league play and 17-2 overall after turning back Summer Creek, 11-0, at home and going on the road to blank Baytown Sterling, 4-0.
Masyn Winn fired a complete-game, three-hit shutout at the Rangers on Friday, striking out 12 along the way. At the plate, Winn delivered two hits and drove in a pair of runs. Tre Richardson also added a hit and a RBI.
Kingwood scored early and often in run-ruling Summer Creek to start the week. The Mustangs scored three runs in each of the first two innings before adding four more in the third inning. They tacked on another in the fourth and shortened the game to five innings by the run-rule.
The Mustangs banged out 17 hits while Kingwood pitcher Cody Lancaster went the distance on 62 pitches, allowing just two hits while striking out three.
Evan Loyko was one of three Kingwood players to collect three hits on the night. Loyko homered and drove in five runs. He also scored two more. Carter Amarantos also had three hits, including a double, drove in two runs and scored three times. Winn added three hits, drove in a run, and scored another.
The Mustangs are at home this week for a pair of district games. C.E. King comes calling on Tuesday to complete the first round of league action. Kingwood hosts Atascocita on Friday. Both games are slated to begin at 7 p.m.
Amazingly enough, Kingwood is not ranked among the top 15 teams in the latest Texas High School Baseball Coaches Association poll. However, Atascocita is ranked No. 6. Kingwood defeated Atasocita, 3-2, on the road in the first meeting between the neighboring rivals.
