EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — In a District 1-6A clash between two rival programs, Montwood used a three-run fifth inning to edge Americas, 5-4, on Tuesday night at Tom Carillo Field.
Rams senior pitcher Jesus Tovar struck out 11 batters to get his ninth win of the season while Aaron Oropeza drove in two runs.
Montwood has won six straight to improve to 17-5 (14-4) on the season, good for second place in the district only behind Eastlake (12-2, 8-2) — based off winning percentage. Americas falls to 10-4 (7-4), but remain in third place with the top four teams in the district qualifying for the playoffs.
