inning and followed that with a seven-run third inning.

MABANK–The visiting Red Oak Hawks handed the youthful Mabank Panthers an
8-0 defeat Tuesday.
Now 0-4 in District 14-4A play, the Panthers were scheduled to visit
Lancaster Friday, and will visit Ennis for a 7 p.m. district game
Tuesday, April 11.
Next Thursday, April 13, the Panthers will host the Athens Hornets in a
7 p.m. contest.
Red Oak pitcher Chad McLin not only threw a no-hitter Tuesday, he came
very close to pitching a perfect game against the Panthers.
Mabank wound up with only two baserunners – catcher Charlie Woodard in
the second inning and outfielder Mikey Shelton in the third – who both
reached first base on errors.
McLin notched 11 strikeouts, and personally got rid of Woodard with a
pickoff throw to first. Shelton wound up stranded when the next two
Panther batters struck out and grounded out.
With McLin shutting down the offense, the Panthers’ defense needed to be
perfect, but Mabank committed four errors behind losing pitcher Cory
The Hawks opened the scoring in the first inning, when back-to-back
doubles by Adam DelaGarza and Troy Elliott scored DelaGarza.
Red Oak’s Casey Slape reached first on an error, and Evan Martinek
singled to left to score Slape, giving the Hawks a 2-0 lead.
The Hawks added a run in the third when Ryan Dillon singled to left and
Elliott reached based on an error, scoring Dillon.
That was it until the seventh inning, when Dillon singled off Panther
reliever Chris Trejo, Elliott singled and Matt Curry doubled to right,
scoring both Dillon and Elliott.
Slape walked, and Trenton McKinney reached base on an error, scoring
Slape. McKinney tried to steal second, but Woodard picked him off to end
