Masyn Winn threw a five-inning no-hitter and Kingwood went on to sweep Baytown Sterling by identical scores of 10-0 in a bi-district playoff series last week. Kingwood advances to the area round of the playoffs this week to face Clear Falls.
Winn threw his gem, striking out six while the Mustangs scored eight runs in the fifth inning to shorten it by the run rule. Tre Richardson and Carter Amarantos each had two hits and two RBIs.
Winn also added a hit, and Sam Friday drove in a run.
The Mustangs made short work of the Rangers again on Friday, scoring three runs each in three consecutive innings for their seventh straight victory. The District 22-6A Champion Mustangs (25-5-2) have now won 17 of their last 18 games.
Ryan Michie and Tanner Evans had two hits apiece in the second game to pace an eight-hit attack. Friday added a hit and drove in two runs while Michie and Jake Byers each added one RBI.
Michie got the win on the mound with four innings of work, striking out four. Nick Luckett finished up with an inning in relief. He struck out one.
The Mustangs now take on a Knights (15-13) team that finished third in District 24-6A but upset District 23-6A runner-up Strake Jesuit in their bi-district playoff series.
