H.S. Baseball: 6th-inning rally pushes Palestine past Mexia



For the fourth time in five district games, the Cayuga baseball team pitched a shut out.

This time, it came via a no-hitter pitched by Chandler Rigdon and Preston Anderson, who allowed only one baserunner in an 11-0 Cayuga victory over Neches Tuesday.

The duo also combined to strike out 11 in the victory, while Rigdon had two hits and two RBIs to help his own cause.

Anderson, Chantz Holland, Payton Wallace and Hunter Johnson all had extra-base hits in the victory as well.

Cayuga (11-2, 5-0) hosts Martin’s Mill Friday, with first pitch scheduled for 5 p.m.
