Gosnell sweeps Westside in baseball doubleheader

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - An early lead in the opening game was not enough for Westside as Gosnell swept the Warriors on their home turf in a baseball doubleheader on Tuesday afternoon.

Westside took a 2-0 lead in game one and looked to be holding solid behind the pitching of starter Tommy Garcia, but Gosnell would respond late offensively and with the help of starting pitcher Justin Mann, went on to win the opening game by the final score of 6-2.

The Pirates kept the momentum going into the second game of the set and the Warriors had a power outage. Gosnell took the second game of the conference doubleheader in shut out fashion 7-0 to sweep Westside.

Gosnell adds Tuesday's wins to an already solid season in the 3-4A, providing good momentum with postseason play approaching.
