GRAHAM – After a thrilling sixth-inning rally to clinch game one on their home turf, the Mineral Wells Lady Rams came away with a slightly more comfortable 9-3 win on the road to sweep their season series with the Graham Lady Blues and capture their fourth consecutive bi-district championship.
For the second straight game, sophomore Kelsey Keeton got credit for the win and split pitching duties with junior Allie Stephens.
The Lady Rams had a great evening at the plate, with some highlights including Hope Patterson going 1-for-2 with a two-RBI double and three intentional walks, Bethany Allen also 1-for-2 with a double and three walks and Anaiz Mendoza finishing 2-for-3.
Moving on to the second round of the playoffs means the Lady Rams will face the winner between Glen Rose and Gatesville.
