I had another opportunity today to shoot the Belton Tigers vs Desoto Eagles in Game 2 of their Class 5A bi-district series for The Temple Daily Telegram. From the beginning it was apparent that these teams were in different classes. Belton swept the series with a 11-0 victory in five innings today to top their 8-0 win in Game 1. This win brings their record to 29-6 as they continue in the playoffs.
