Both the Aledo Bearcats baseball team and Ladycats softball team defeated Brewer in respective District 6-5A contests Tuesday night at home.

Bearcats 9, Brewer 1

Aledo pitcher Kannon Brown allowed one hit and struck out eight to lead the Bearcats to an eight-run win over Brewer.

The win – which puts Aledo alone in first place – elevates the Bearcats’ district mark to 3-0, while Brewer drops to 2-1.

The lone hit Brown gave up was an infield hit in the second inning. It is the second one-hitter the senior has thrown this season.

The Bearcats broke a 1-1 tie with three runs in the bottom of the third to take a 4-1 lead. Caden Jarvis and Gehrig Mosiello each drove in a run in the frame.

Aledo added three runs in the fifth to increase its lead to 7-1. The big hit in the inning was a two-run double by Hunter Rosson. Jarvis also drove in a run.

The Bearcats closed the scoring with two runs in the sixth. Jarvis collected his third and fourth RBI of the game with a two-run double.

Ladycats 10, Brewer 0

Megan Reynolds threw a four-hitter and did not walk a batter to lead the Ladycats to a 10-0 victory in a game stopped in the bottom of the sixth due to run rule.

The win raises the Ladycats’ district record to 3-2, while Brewer falls to 0-5.

The Ladycats swatted 16 hits in the contest as seven batters had multiple-hit games, led by Hannah Andrews and Mykayla Stroud, each with three hits.

Leading 4-0, the Ladycats put the game away with five runs in the fifth for a 9-0 advantage.

With the bases loaded in the sixth, Caden Cunningham lined a base hit to score Andrews to end the game.
