Gobblers advance to area playoffs, face Robstown
Michael Barta made his first varsity playoff start in the Gobblers’ playoff-opener against Crystal City. Michael settled in from the start, tossing four shutout innings before giving way to Garrett Veit in the final frame. Cuero only needed five innings to defeat the Javelinas for the bi-district championship, 10-0.
The Gobblers were equally as impressive with their bats led by Veit who went two for three with a single, RBI triple and one run.
“We came out ready to play,” head coach Phil Schwarz said. “I think we swung the bats throughout the lineup. It wasn’t just the top of the lineup; it was the bottom of the lineup. Anytime you’ve got one through nine swinging the bats, you got a chance to score some runs.”
