Good pitching, stellar defensive play, and timely hitting gave the Corpus Christi Moody Trojans a 6-0 victory over the Uvalde Coyotes in the opening game of the Bi-District playoff series last Friday at Southwest High School. Moody pitching ace Marcus Cantu scattered four Uvalde hits. He walked one batter and recorded 10 strikeouts. The Trojans played error-free baseball and they came up with several outstanding defensive plays, including a backhanded grab by second baseman Angel De La Paz in the fifth inning that denied Connor Kimball a single.
