Saginaw pitcher Bryson Hill threw a three-hitter while striking out 10 as the Rough Riders defeated the Aledo Bearcats, 2-0, Friday night in the District 6-5A baseball finale at Aledo.
The loss gives the Bearcats a final 8-6 district mark as Aledo, which has already clinched a playoff spot, will finish either second or third in district pending the results of other district contests.
Aledo starting pitcher Kannon Brown returned to action after a two-week layoff and performed well. He allowed a run on two hits with a pair of walks and five strikeouts in four innings.
Briley Rodriguez went 2 2/3 innings in relief and allowed a run on one hit with a strikeout, and Trevor Bruno came on in relief and got the last Saginaw batter out.
Chance Roberts, Jacob Arizoe and Caden Jarvis each recorded a base hit for the Bearcats.
