CORPUS CHRISTI - It's been another great year for the CCISD Mira's Baseball & Softball tournaments here in town. The baseball tournament featured 12 quality teams from all across South Texas, while the softball tourney had 24 teams.
We saw a great matchup in the baseball semifinals. Two top-ranked teams from Corpus Christi, Moody (ranked #1 in class 4A) faced Carroll (#8 in class 5A). The Trojans put up three runs in the top of the first inning, and that was plenty of run support for ace pitcher Kenny Saenz who notched a 5-hit shutout as Moody advances to the title game with the 3-0 win. The other semifinal pitted King and Tuloso-Midway. The Mustangs led from start to finish in a 8-2 victory, setting up a King vs. Moody championship game.
In the title game, Moody jumped out to a quick lead thanks to four first inning runs. The Mustangs could never recover as the Trojans win the 11th annual Mira's Classic, 5-3 the final.
The Carroll Tigers won the third place game 10-1 over Tuloso-Midway.
The softball tournament was dominated by the Lady Cats of Gregory-Portland. G-P finished a stellar undefeated tournament with a 15-0 victory in four innings against Flour Bluff in the Championship game. Carroll defeated EP Winn 16-3 for 3rd place.
Here's the Softball All-Tournament team:
