Lake Travis fell to No. 3 in the weekly Class 6A state poll compiled by the Texas High School Baseball Coaches Association after a loss to Vista Ridge last week, and the Cavaliers are in danger of falling out of the state poll for the first time this season after a 2-1 loss to Vandegrift on Tuesday. Senior right-hander Parker Bond recorded his sixth win of the season for the Vipers. … A walkoff RBI single by Jacob Wilson gave Vista Ridge its 6-5 victory over the Cavs last week. The win helped the Rangers secure a playoff spot out of District 25-6A, along with Lake Travis, Hays and Vandegrift. … Hays clinched its playoff berth by sweeping Vandegrift last week, when Rebels pitcher Weston Wolf struck out 10 and allowed just one run in a complete-game 2-1 victory. … Kolby Kelton was 4 for 4 with a home run as Stony Point blasted McNeil 11-1 Tuesday in District 13-6A action. With little more than a week left in the regular season, just a game separates third-place Pflugerville, fourth-place Stony Point and fifth-place Cedar Ridge in the district standings.. … District 19-5A remains tight at the top, with Georgetown and Rouse tied for first with two district losses apiece and Cedar Park a game back with three losses. Georgetown starter Justin Murphy threw a complete game, two-hit shutout in a 5-0 victory over Rouse last week, but the Eagles then fell to Cedar Park 3-1 Tuesday. … Since losing to district-leading McCallum 2-0 on March 24, Austin High has won six consecutive District 25-5A games by a combined score of 73-1. Nick Mendevil and Liam Ozdil, who have a combined 46 RBIs entering this week, pace the Maroons’ attack. … A 10-game winning streak has propelled Liberty Hill to the top of the District 19-4A standings and its first appearance in the THSBCA Class 4A state poll. Pitchers Wyatt Cheney (1.16 ERA, 57 strikeouts) and Chandler Freeman (1.01 ERA, 48 Ks) have fueled the Panthers’ surge. … Logan Fisher struck out 11 while holding Rosebud-Lott to two hits and one run in Thorndale’s 8-1 victory last week. The Bulldogs received votes in the latest THSCBA Class 2A state poll.

Spieth, Garcia and Thomas surge at Dell Match as Johnson, Rahm falter

Jordan Spieth, the former Texas Longhorns star, cracked jokes Thursday afternoon after his second win in as many days at the WGC-Dell Match Play championship. He was both self aware and self deprecating after his easy round that ended on the 16th green when he clinched his match against China’s HaoTong Li, 4 and 2. Maybe Spieth, the fourth seed...

Golden: McIlroy back in peak form with Masters approaching

Match play doesn’t care where you’re ranked. It doesn’t care how many majors you have under your belt. It doesn’t even care that you outshot Tiger by seven when you were paired together at Augusta in 2015, when you finished fourth. It only cares about one thing: How you did in one round of golf on one particular day. Former...

Bohls: Sergio Garcia staves off Frittelli, tough winds and a heckler

Sergio Garcia had had enough. And unfortunately, the over-served millennial at the Ultra Club had had one too many on Wednesday. When the young man, probably in his late 20s, wouldn’t stop heckling Garcia as he prepared to hit his second shot off a cart path just next to the 480-seat hospitality grandstand bordering the 12th fairway, the defending...
