NORTH RICHLAND HILLS — Birdville survived a seventh-inning rally by Saginaw Boswell to prevail 2-1 and take sole possession of first place in District 6-4A on Friday night.Hawks (13-7, 6-0) pitcher Parker Hagler struck out seven, walked two and gave up six hits in a complete-game performance to move to 5-1 this season.The Pioneers (14-7, 6-1) didn’t score until they were down to their final out, but three consecutive singles — the last an RBI shot to right field by Trent Dickens — set Boswell up with runners on the corners. But Hagler induced the next Pioneer batter into a ground ball to end the game.“Parker does a great job. He had his change-up going, he had his curveball going and when he gets those over and his fastball is fast enough to keep them off balence he does a good job,” Birdville coach David Hatcher said.Birdville played great defense behind Hagler, especially on a relay throw to home in the third. A double down the left field line to the corner by Zach Files sent a Boswell base runner around third towards home, but an excellent throw from Ty Engelhardt to cutoff man Robert Salazar and a subsequent perfect throw home, saved a run.“We actually practice that shot in the corner every day,” Hatcher said.Engelhardt drove in Birdville’s first run on a bloop single to center, scoring Colton Stephens from second in the fifth inning. Trevor Hillhouse padded the lead in the sixth on a RBI single to shallow center, scoring Robert Salazar from second.
