The Lee batting lineup has the firepower to put a crooked number on the scoreboard in any inning, and the Rebels did it twice Saturday. The No. 19-ranked Rebels scored seven runs in the second inning and five in the sixth to run away with a 13-4 victory over rival Midland High in a District 2-6A baseball game at Zachery Field. First-place Lee (18-4, 9-1) swept the three-game season series over rival MHS (12-13, 2-10), and will visit second-place Odessa Permian (21-6, 11-2) at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday to start a three-game series that could very well determine the District 2-6A champion. In Saturday’s rivalry game, Luis Cordero powered the Lee lineup by going 2-for-4 with a home run and four RBI, while teammate Michael Weidner went 3-for-5 with a triple, three RBI and two runs scored. The Rebels ended up scoring 25 runs in two days against MHS after not playing for 13 days. “It was in spurts,” Lee head coach Brian Roper said of the offense. “I attribute that to maybe some of the time off. I stayed with more of the guys throughout the game just because we hadn’t had the at-bats.” The Rebels extended their lead to 8-0 in the second after sending 11 batters to the plate and swatting five extra-base hits. Chase Shores, Brayden Wynne and Tanner Hedrick hit doubles; Weidner provided a triple and Cordero finished it off by drilling a line-drive over the right-field fence for a two-run homer. “Our Achilles heel has been big innings,” MHS head coach Jeremy Mueller said. “We make a couple of mistakes and we can’t stop the bleeding. We’ve got to learn how to limit the damage after a mistake or a couple of walks or something like that. We just got to get better as a baseball team right now.” The Bulldogs were able to make it a game though, scoring one run in the second and three in the third to cut the deficit to 8-4. MHS sophomore Josh Reed doubled and scored in the second and hit an RBI double in the third. In relief, Reed kept the Bulldogs in the game by hurling three straight scoreless innings. However, Lee was able to quell MHS’ momentum too, as reliever Jaxon Ramos held the Bulldogs hitless and issued only one walk over three innings. Ramos struck out four. “Jaxon threw the ball really well,” Roper said. “That’s something that we need. He was sharp.” Added Weinder, who caught Ramos: “I felt like he was hitting his zones good, hitting his spots real well. His changeup was really good today and he kept it low. He threw strikes, that’s all you can ask for.” Lee’s bats woke up again in the sixth, as it sent 10 batters to the plate to create a 13-4 cushion. Weidner and Casen Yonts each provided RBI singles, and Raymond Vasquez contributed with a two-run single. The Bulldogs have dropped eight straight since taking the first two games against San Angelo Central early in the District 2-6A campaign. “You’ve got to give Lee credit,” Mueller said. “They’re a good ballclub. We just have to get better at this point. That’s the bottom line. We just have to get better.” Hedrick went 2-for-4 with two doubles and two runs scored and Trevor Roper had a two-run single and scored two runs for Lee. Caleb Floyd and Trick Pierce both had RBI singles for MHS, which visits Wolfforth Frenship at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. chadorn@mrt.com | Follow Christopher on Twitter: @chris_MRTsports LEE 13, MIDLAND HIGH 4 Lee 170 005 0 --13 12 4 MHS 013 000 0 --4 4 3 Hunter Weidner, Jace Martinez (3), Jaxon Ramos (4), Hayden Westenburg (7) and Michael Weidner.

Midland High and Odessa High battled in a marathon softball game that had plenty of tense moments on Thursday night at Martin Field. In the bottom of the 12th, Liliana Garza hit a bloop single to right, scoring Violet Granado to give MHS a 3-2 win over the Lady Bronchos in a District 2-6A game where first place was at stake. Granado tripled deep to center in the previous at-bat. “ I’ve just got to do my job and help my team score the runner,” Garza said of her thought process before her walk-off hit. With the victory, the Lady Bulldogs (21-2, 7-0) moved two games ahead of the second-place Lady Bronchos (16-6, 5-2) for first place, and swept the season series, but Thursday’s win wasn’t anything like the opener when MHS blanked OHS, 12-0, on the road. “Like I (said before), this was going to be a tough one,” Lady Dawgs coach Shawnda Vines said. “Our squads are really similar with one another. Both squads are scrappy. We knew it was going to be a tough one for us and it was. It was a classic.” MHS starter Alex Aguilar struck out 17 OHS batters through 12 innings pitched and finished the game having retired 10 straight batters. The Lady Bulldogs bungled a chance to win the game in the bottom of the seventh. With runners on second base and third and one out, MHS’ Nalaney Paul smoked a line-drive to center, which was caught for an out. Instead of MHS tagging up and scoring the winning run on a sacrifice fly, the Lady Dawgs’ second base runner took off down the base path toward third base and was doubled up for an inning-ending double play. “It’s a very good learning moment for all of us,” Garza said. “But all in all, we work together and it was a good win.” MHS had two other costly miscues, as Meghan Gattis doubled to left in the fourth inning and came around to score on the play when an MHS fielder threw the ball down the right-field line on an attempt to get her out at second. That play tied the score at 1. In the fifth, Diveli Cherry tripled down the right-field line. After the cutoff throw, an MHS fielder made an ill-advised throw toward third base, which Cherry capitalized on to dash home and give OHS a 2-1 lead. “The fact that they did grind it out, it showed a lot of character on their part,” Vines said. “It showed growth on their part. These are the kind of games that help prepare you for things down the road possibly. It just makes you grow as a team because the kids, they have to fight. They have to fight together and they have to be united in what they’re doing. They stayed up the whole time. They never gave up even though we put ourselves in some bad situations a couple of different times. But being able to come back and win it the way they did, I was really proud of them.” The Lady Bulldogs would tie it at 2 when Bryleigh Morris ripped a double down the left-field line, scoring Granado from first. In the ninth, both teams had chances to possibly win it. OHS loaded the bases against Aguilar but she pitched out of the jam by inducing a pop out to short. In the bottom half, MHS loaded the bases with no outs, but couldn’t cash in, as Paul lined into a double play before an inning-ending flyout extinguished the threat. The Lady Bulldogs scored in the first when Aguilar singled to center, bringing home Jolie Baeza. chadorn@mrt.com | Follow Christopher on Twitter: @chris_MRTsports MIDLAND HIGH 3, ODESSA HIGH 2, 12 innings OHS 000 110 000 000 --2 5 3 MHS 100 000 100 001 --3 13 1 Meghan Gattis and Abegail Molina.

Midland High senior Joy Egwu ran a 12.53 to take home gold in the girls 100-meter dash.

The Midland High girls finished third with 97 points, behind first-place Frenship (150) and runner-up Abilene High (100).
