■ Calallen runs wild behind Zastryzny for series (Corpus Christi Caller)
Facing an unbeaten pitcher, Calallen turned the baseball over to Rob Zastryzny and ran.Picture of the Day
Zastryzny stifled Pflugerville Hendrickson's bats Friday night while his Wildcats teammates ran wild on the basepaths. Zastryzny tossed a three-hitter, and Calallen baserunners set up a first-strike, three-run third with judicious use of the running game as the Wildcats dropped the Hawks 8-0 at North East Stadium.
. . .
Zastryzny (14-0) won the battle of the aces, striking out nine and scattering three hits. The pitcher barely worked up a sweat, throwing 86 pitches, 62 for strikes. Only twice -- in the third and in the sixth -- did the Hawks put a runner in scoring position.
"They helped me out with a lot of first-pitch ground balls and pop flies," Zastryzny said. "They're an aggressive team, and they can swing the bats, but they helped me out with a lot of short pitch counts."
