HS Baseball Playoff Preview: King Feeling Confident With 4 Solid Arms

CORPUS CHRISTI - In the baseball world coaches who don't like the idea of playing a series usually don't feel like they have enough pitchers to carry them. And that's something King is counting on as they open the postseason with San Antonio Warren on Thursday night in San Antonio.

"Even if we just have a one-game series, I feel like we have the manpower to do it. We have four pitchers, and if one is in trouble, one can come in. If that one gets in trouble, we have another come in. We have more than what we need," said senior outfielder, Eric Perez.

King wrapped up the season 16-12-1, with their big win coming over Carroll in the second half of district play. The Mustangs finished up 28-5A in second place.

"I am pretty confident any team can win on any day but if we get out stuff going we should be good," said Pitcher Benny Zamudio.

The key to victory is more solid pitching, and getting out to a fast start. King has had an issue with starting slow this season, and that's something that can't happen in the postseason.

"We are more determined we have more fire and we wanna make it far in the playoffs," said Thomas Silvas.
