Mueller for Wylie was not perfect on the mound but almost as good as it gets, when he threw a no-hitter at the Wildcats Friday night in front of the home crowd. He allowed one run, striking out 6, walking three but surrendered no hits.

Kennedale?s Tyler Perez performance might have been good enough to eek out a win with good run support but he was tagged with the loss. Perez threw 106 pitches with 61 strikes in six innings of play and got 3 strikeouts but was credited with allowing 4 runs on six hits.

At bats, Kennedale went in order, 3 up 3 down, through much of the game. The Wildcats left 2 on in the 4th after Steven Murchison walked and Jake Michener reached on an error. A sacrifice by Aaron Williams moved Murchison into scoring position but two consecutive strike outs by the Cats ended the threat.
The Wildcats had a rally going in the top of the 7th when Michener was walked, Cody Bossaller was hit by a pitch and then Perez was walked. Kennedale had the bases loaded with no outs. Lukas Williams grounded out but Michener scored. Wylie brought in their closer and he did what he supposed to do and got the next two Wildcats to strike out swinging leaving another two runners on base.

How deep does Wylie?s pitching go? The Wildcats will find out this afternoon. The Cats will have their ace on the mound with Austin Eggleston but the Wildcats will have to find their swing.
This is a team that has the capability of keeping the ball in play and scoring big. A two game sweep this afternoon at home is very possible. This senior dominated team has to look no further ahead than today to keep playing the game.
