Highland Park - 8; Mesquite Poteet - 3

Winning Pitcher: Evan Blakeley, Highland Park High School, Dallas, Texas

"The 2007 Highland Park Scots varsity baseball team continued to tear through District 10-4A play last week with wins over previously unbeaten Mesquite Poteet and Rockwall-Heath... The Mesquite Poteet Pirates swaggered into Scotland Yard last Friday night as the top-ranked team in the area with a 21-1 record that included a 2-0 win over Highland Park in March. The Scots wasted a tremendous pitching performance by Wyatt Holliday with errors that led to the Pirates' victory... After the Pirates had cut the Scot lead to 3-2 in the top of the fourth, Highland Park blew the game open with a five-run outburst in the bottom of the inning... The Scots held on for the 8-3 win with eight hits on the night, while the Pirates could manage only four hits off Blakeley and Hainsfurther, who mopped up the bottom of the seventh."

Note: Wyatt Holliday closed out the Poteet game, not Hainsfurther. Also, their home-run was against Holliday, not Blakeley.
