Clear Creek blanks Friendswood 10-0

FRIENDSWOOD — Clear Creek starting pitcher Zach Esquivel pitched a no-hitter against the Friendswood Mustangs, but it took 72 hours to do so.

The game was suspended and then postponed due to the weather so Esquivel had plenty of rest as he allowed two walks and a hit batsman over the 72-hour period.

The Wildcats built a 4-0 lead before the game was postponed at the end of the second inning.

But the 'Cats never lost their momentum as Creek scored four more runs in the bottom of the third.

Clear Creek added one more run in the fourth making the score 9-0.

After the Mustangs failed to score in the top of the fifth, Clear Creek ended the game in their half of the fifth to get the 10-run rule.

Michael Rohland hit the first pitch he saw to launch a walk-off homer over the left field fence to post the 10-0 final score.

Creek has a two-game district lead at 10-1 while Friendswood falls to 8-3 and a strong grip on second place.
