Diablos post Wednesday tourney wins

The West Texas Diablos moved up a few spots in the standings on Wednesday by winning their first two games in the Championship Bracket of the USSSA's 12 and Under AAA World Series at Hutchison, Kan.

The team, made up of four Pecos players and seven from Odessa, won a pair of games on Wednesday, downing the Wichita Bats by a 9-6 final score, then defeated one of the teams ranked ahead of them, the Texas Warriors from Grand Prairie, by a 10-1 final score.

Isaiah Rayos got the win in that game over the Warriors, who came in ranked 11th out of 84 teams at the tournament following the first 2½-days of play. It was the first loss for the Warriors, who had outscored their opponents 35-3 in their first three games, while the Diablos also raised their record to 3-1 in the tournament with their victory.

Team rankings are based on wins and losses, along with runs scored and allowed and average difference in runs per game. Going by that, the Diablos moved up from 32nd to 20th before their win over the Warriors, while the St. Louis Diamond Kings were ranked first among the 84 teams in the week-long tournament.

Of the Texas teams entered, the Andrews Mudcats were ranked highest going into their fifth game of the tournament on Wednesday. Andrews was ranked ninth overall, one spot ahead of the East Texas Arthletics and two ahead of the Warriors.
