The Sealy Tigers won their second straight district game last week after beating Stafford 5-0. Senior Devin Aguado took the mound for the Tigers and pitched six scoreless before being pulled from the final inning.
“I rely pretty heavily on my fastball and that was working me for really well last night,” Aguado said.
He struck out eight, walked three and only allowed the Spartans to muster a single hit over his six innings.
Aguado also led the team in RBI with three off of two hits. It was exactly the two-way performance the team was hoping to get from its players as the Tigers are still in the run for first in their district.
“We actually like playing with the pressure because it gives us a chance to find out who we really are as a team and overcome adversity so it’s something we actually welcome,” Aguado said.
In the game against Stafford, Tanner Stilts and Chris Wright both tacked on one RBI to their stat line to close out the game 5-0.
The Tigers’ final game of the season will be against Needville at press time for The Sealy News. The last time the teams met, Sealy won 8-3.
