The Robstown Cotton Pickers are in sole possession of second place in District 31-3A after Friday night's 26-4 home route against the Falfurrias Jerseys.
Headed into last weekend's game, both teams came into the contest with identical 4-1 records, but after the dust settled, the Cotton Pickers find themselves a game back of front running Sinton (6-0 district).
"It was a big win because of the won-loss record. You want to win all of your district games," Robstown skipper Steve Castro said. "Now we have to focus on Ingleside."
The Cotton Pickers and Mustangs played Tuesday in Ingleside. Robstown then plays Thursday night at Corpus Christi West Oso, at 7 p.m.
The only setback in district has been a loss to Sinton two weeks ago. Despite the loss, Castro feels his team is in the right spot to make a run at the title. The main goal for the 'Pickers however, is making the playoffs.
"Our goal is to make the playoffs," Castro said. "You want to win a title, but the playoffs is the main goal."
After Tuesday's games, seven district games are left for the 'Pickers and the objective is to take one game at a time.
"There are still lots of baseball left to be played. Anything can still happen," Castro said. "We're trying to be more consistent, win key games along the way and we have to take it one game a time."
