Sophomore catcher Braxton Allen was also 2-for-3, including a double and two runs.
Looking ahead to the Kennedale game, Barrick said he is unsure of who he will start on the mound. Chris Rapp – who was originally slated to start the game – should stay in the outfield after pitching three innings, Tuesday. But Barrick said he still has plenty of options to choose from with a pitching staff that is proving to be exceptionally deep, specifically mentioning Allen, who closed consecutive games last week, McCain Mason, who started Friday, and Justyn Lee, who has yet to pitch in district.
"There's three guys right there that are all possibilities for Friday," Barrick said of his rotation options. "It's a good thing; we've got depth on the pitching staff this year. I mean, we're 3-0 in district with three different starting pitchers. We possibly might have four after Friday. It'll be good to see."
Barrick said the attitude the Rams played with against Springtown and their focus heading into Kennedale has been consistent all year: the age-old one-game-at-a-time philosophy. He said he continues to stress the importance of never taking a game off, using an example from last season.
"You get on a roll and you win two or three in a row and you have a tendency to maybe get lackadaisical and not focus as much as you should," he said. "We did that last year with Lake Worth and it should have never happened. I keep reminding the kids about Lake Worth and just telling them to focus, take them one game at a time and we'll see what happens.
"Springtown was a good win for us, it was a big win for us and now we get to go out to Kennedale and strap it on."
