A sixth-inning single broke up a perfect game from Southlake Carroll’s Kole Ramage, but that was all the Arkansas signee would give up in the Dragons 4-0 win vs. No. 13 Lewisville.

Ramage, who struck out five in the complete game, was perfect for 5 1/3 innings until Lewisville’s Steely Gill one-out single to right field in the bottom of the sixth.

The No. 23 Dragons (15-7-1, 4-1 in 5-6A) scored three times in the second. Ramage led off with a double and Nik Millsap, Cole Johnson and Jake Murphy hit RBI singles. Ross Cadena got a sac fly in the seventh to bring home Murphy.

Martin combo

Texas Tech signee Kenneth Waller allowed three hits and struck out seven as the No. 8 Warriors (16-4-1, 5-0 in 4-6A) shut out Mansfield 4-0.

Texas signee Tristen Lutz was a double shy of the cycle, going 3 of 3 with a home run, triple, three RBIs and two runs scored.

Lutz got on with a two-out triple in the first and scored on a Mansfield error. The Warriors pulled away on a three-run home run to left by Lutz.

Mustang strong

The 5A state champ Grapevine jumped out early in a 9-1 win vs. Birdville. Louisiana Tech signee Connor Neuman allowed two hits and struck out nine in six innings.

No. 11 Grapevine (14-7, 5-0 in 8-5A) led 2-0 after the first inning on a two-out two-run double to left field by Arkansas signee Ryan Drake. The Mustangs added a run in the third and London Green’s double in the fourth made it 4-0.

The Mustangs scored three in fifth and Jonathan Hearn’s RBI double in the seventh made it 9-0.

Pioneer rally

Trailing 6-0 after five innings, Boswell scored seven times to shock the No. 13 Bearcats 9-6 at Aledo High School.

Aledo got five runs in the fourth; Caden Jarvis hit an RBI triple and scored on a three-run double from Hunter Rosson. Calloway Shands’ RBI single made it 6-0.

Jacob Finley started the sixth-inning rally with a one-out single to center. Chris Delgado singled and Gabe Kurtzhals got on with error as Finley scored. Hunter Harp followed with a RBI single to right and Justin Lundquist-Irvin made it 6-3 with an RBI single to left.

Jesse Dehoyos singled and Jake Mueller hit a two-run double to center. Hunter Huddleston gave Boswell the lead with a two-run single to center.

Kurtzhals came in the sixth and struck out the side, and the Pioneers added two more runs in the seventh.
