COLUMBUS EDGES SOUTHWEST IN DISTRICT OPENER, 2-1

Two first-inning runs were all host Columbus needed to defeat Southwest, 2-1, in the district opener for both teams. The Explorers (4-0) rally started when the first two batters were hit by pitches and advanced on a wild pitch. A ground out scored the first run and a single plated the other. The Eagles (3-1) got one run back in the third when Daniel DeLeon reached on an error, was singled to second by Erick Orbeta, moved up on a double steal, and scored when Jorge Tejeda beat out an infield hit.
