Belton has yet again swept another playoff series. They beat Richardson Lake Highlands 5-1 on Saturday advancing them to the Class 5A Region II semifinals at Sam Houston State. The game was tied 1-1 in the fifth before Belton rallied after a walk off home run in sixth inning to take out the Wildcats in Game 2 of the series. This may be the last of my baseball posts for awhile since both teams I have been covering are going out of town as the continue. I’m hoping to start experimenting with some video projects soon so stay tuned.
