Friday Baseball: Will Bradshaw’s Complete-Game Shutout Lifts Longview + Whitehouse Rebounds
LONGVIEW — All it took was one run for Longview to get back into the winning column, thanks to pitcher Will Bradshaw.
Bradshaw (4-2) struck out eight in a complete-game, two-hit shutout in the Lobos’ 1-0 win over Mesquite Horn in District 12-5A action Friday night at Lobo Field. The Longview right-hander walked just two on the night.
Longview (9-11, 2-1) made the most of its three hits, getting the game’s only run on Jordan Wright’s RBI single that scored Sam Scarborough in the bottom of the sixth. Dez Chumley and Jared Pauley had Longview’s other two base hits.
The Lobos’ season resumes Tuesday at North Mesquite.
Whitehouse Rebounds From First Loss
WHITEHOUSE — The second-ranked Whitehouse Wildcats rebounded from its District 16-4A opening loss to Lindale with a 7-3 win over Jacksonville on Friday night.
Patrick Mahomes had one of the Wildcats’ four hits and drove in three runs, while Peyton Conser doubled and had two RBIs.
Ryan Cheatham earned the win, working around three Whitehouse errors. He pitched five innings, allowing two runs (none earned) on five hits with six strikeouts and no walks. Cheatham was also 1-for-2 with an RBI and run scored at the plate.
Conser pitched the sixth inning and recorded two outs in the seventh, before Jake Parker got the final out of the game.
