Stephenville's parade to the playoffs in 2012-13 continues.
The Yellow Jacket baseball team followed its key win of the District 7-3A season - a 3-2 victory over Venus at James T. Young Field Friday - with two wins at Hillsboro Saturday to clinch the league's final playoff spot behind Alvarado and Glen Rose.
Stephenville began its dominant Saturday by playing the final four-plus innings of a game that was halted due to inclement weather on March 19. They led 5-0 in the third inning when umpires and coaches agreed to suspend play, and the game continued down the same path Saturday.
Stephenville tackled on a run in the fourth and two each in the sixth and seventh to make it a 10-0 route, collecting 12 hits and committing just one error to Hillsboro's four. Maddux Conger actually pitched Stephenville to the lead when the game originally started. He had surrendered no runs on a hit in 2.2 innings but was since lost to a concussion. Mookie Carlile pitched 3.2 innings Saturday, shutting out the Eagles and allowing only two hits. Colby Woodard recorded the final two outs.
Ben Martin finished the prolonged blowout going 2-for-5 with two RBIs and three runs. Brock Morrison was 2-for-5 with two RBIs and Ryker Thompson was 2-for-3. Conger was 2-for-2 with a run driven in before he game was halted in March.
Stephenville carried over momentum into Saturday's full game, which was originally scheduled for tonight. The Jackets scored four runs in the second and five in the fifth, crusing to a 12-2 win despite recording just six base hits.
Morrison and Martin were each 2-for-4, with Morrison driving in three runs and scoring one and Martin recording an RBI and a run. Daniel Bullard pitched four innings and allowed a run on three hits while striking out six. Witt Westbrook surrendered a run on a hit over the final three frames.
Stephenville has completed district play, while others in the league march on. The Jackets will learn their opening-round playoff opponent when play in District 8-3A is complete.
