Mustangs look to even things up
Cy-Fair has done its best to maintain the 17-5A baseball lead, but there are a number of teams right with the Bobcats, like Cy Creek and Langham Creek, and the Cy Ranch Mustangs, who have a little extra incentive.
Cy Ranch lost 8-3 at Cy-Fair in what was billed as a showdown in the first round, and the Mustangs are out to reverse that result at their house and avoid a sweep.
