The high school baseball playoffs are finally under way. Refugio won twice at Riverside Stadium on Thursday night to defeat Hitchcock in their best-of-three game Class 2A bi-district series. The Bobcats won 7-1 and 14-1. Hitchcock won the first game Wednesday night 2-1 in 10 innings in Freeport. Refugio coach Armando Huerta said he thought the UIL-mandated layoff because of the threat of the swine flu hurt both teams. Refugio scored two runs through 15 innings before erupting for 20 over the next six. The Bobcats advanced to area against Natailia, which had a first-round bye. All area-round playoffs will be one game as mandated by the UIL.
