DIAMOND BITS

Lake Travis remained No. 2 in the weekly Class 6A state poll compiled by the Texas High School Baseball Coaches Association. Sophomore Jimmy Lewis threw a gem in a win over Leander last week, striking out seven and allowing two hits in a complete-game shutout. The Cavaliers began a three-game series against Vista Ridge this week with a 6-3 victory. … Hendrickson suffered its first setback in District 13-6A play as Stony Point recorded a 12-1 victory on Wednesday. Stony Point’s Logan Garza threw a one-hitter to earn his third straight shutout win. … Round Rock moved into a tie with Hendrickson for first place in District 13-6A with a 4-1 win over Westwood on Wednesday. Aidan Shepardson finished 3 for 4 to pace the Dragons’ offense, and Grant Miller struck out nine while allowing two hits in 6 1/3 innings. … Anderson has won six consecutive games while climbing to the top of the District 14-6A standings. Pitcher Walker Sigman entered the week ranked third among area pitchers with 60 strikeouts, based on stats submitted to the American-Statesman, and James Baran paces the Anderson lineup with a .406 batting average. … Rouse pitchers Devin Tucker and Devin Hooper combined to allow two hits and total 11 strikeouts in a pivotal 2-1 victory over Cedar Park last week. The win set up a showdown between the Raiders and Georgetown for first place in District 19-5A, and it handed the Timberwolves a second consecutive district loss. … McCallum’s pitching staff continued its dominance over District 25-5A foes during a 10-0 win over Crockett last week. The Knights have allowed more than two runs only once this season, a 9-6 victory over Burnet in February. … Georgetown Gateway Prep, a private school that competes in District 25-3A, handed Lago Vista just its third loss of the season when it beat the Vikings 4-1 last week. With the loss, Lago Vista fell from No. 2 to No. 7 in the latest THSBCA Class 3A state rankings.

Golden’s nuggets: Kudos to coming back to finish your college degree

Kudos to several Texas exes who earned their college degrees over the weekend. I’ve always believed it’s much more difficult to return to school a decade-plus later after a career and maintain the discipline needed to earn that degree. It was nice to see former basketball coach Rick Barnes and his All-American point guard T.J. Ford share...

Bohls: Remember sacrifice bunts? Texas baseball has shifted away from small-ball

The Texas baseball team may rank last in the Big 12 in batting average, but it ranks first in double takes. That’s as in hitters, staring down at signals delivered from the third base coaching box and incredulously giving a second glance in disbelief. Earlier this season, Kacy Clemens came to bat with a man on first and all but expected the sign...
