Dragons Blank Mansfield, Complete First-Round Sweep

DragonBaseballThe Carroll Dragon baseball team blanked Mansfield in a Class 6A bi-district playoff series last weekend.

Carroll silenced Mansfield for 12 innings of the series, winning 10-0 in the opener and 2-0 on Saturday to complete the sweep. The Dragons advance to meet Hebron in an area round series.

Dragon pitcher Kole Ramage sent his team to the area round with a five-hit shutout on Saturday. The Dragons’ offense was quiet most of the day scoring one run in the first inning and one in the third on Hudson Sanchez’s towering solo home run to left field.

The Dragons (21-6-1) won the series opener at Mansfield in a game shortened to five innings by the 10-run rule. Left-handed started Trevor Harris, bound for Baylor next fall, earned the victory on the mound and went 2-for-3 with two RBI at the plate.
