Waxahachie’s winning streak is at six games as the Indians defeated Terrell 11-1 last Tuesday before sweeping five-games in the Western Hills Cougar Classic Thursday-Saturday.
Only one of the five games played in the Fort Worth area was close for the Indians as the Tribe finished the tournament with a 10-3 victory over Lakeview Centennial Saturday.
Lakeview Centennial burned through several pitchers in the first inning after jumping out to a quick 2-0 lead.
Waxahachie (11-5, 1-0) batted around in the bottom of the first and pushed across six runs on two hits as the Lakeview Centennial pitching could not find its target.
Lakeview Centennial walked the bases loaded after allowing a leadoff double to Michael Bosch before David Martinelli reached on a fielder’s choice that scored Bosch but recorded an out at second. Cameron Phillips walked to load the bases for Andrew Smith.
Smith singled back to the mound to tie the game at two before a wild pitch scored Martinelli.
Ryan Cawthon walked before Will Atkins and Bosch were both hit by pitches to drive in runs. Seth Sims walked to push another run before Lakeview Centennial worked out of the inning.
Lakeview Centennial added a run in the third to make it a 6-3 game before Waxahachie added three in the fourth and one in the fifth.
With one away, Phillips and Smith singled to start the Waxahachie offense in the fourth before errors pushed all three runs of the inning across the plate.
Sims led off the bottom of the fifth with a triple before scoring on a single by Martinelli.
Kyle McLeroy pitched the first inning and allowed one hit, a walk and two runs while Smith finished the game. Smith pitched five innings and allowed four hits, one run and a walk while fanning two.
Sims was 2-for-2 with two runs scored, two walks and an RBI in the win while Bosch, Martinelli and Smith all had two hits each. Martinelli drove in two runs while being one of four Indians to steal a base.
Waxahachie played at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington today at 3 and will be back in District 15-4A action Tuesday with a 7 p.m. first pitch in Red Oak.
