Baseball prepares for zone opener with sweep from Grayson

Navarro baseball took a non-conference doubleheader sweep of third-ranked Grayson here Saturday at Perry D. Graham Field.

Coach Whoa Dill’s Bulldogs (10-6) won the opener 1-0 behind McAllen lefthander Jorge Flores’ no-hitter.

Navarro rallied to secure a thrilling 6-5 win in 11 innings in the nightcap.  The Bulldogs rallied five runs to tie and send the game to extra frames.  After NC pushed across the go-ahead run in the bottom of the 10th, Grayson loaded the bases but could not score in the 11th.

Navarro opens Region XIV East Division play here February 28, when it hosts the Panola Ponies for a three-game weekend series.  The Bulldogs and Panola will play a 2 p. Friday single game, and a noon doubleheader Saturday.
