Jacob Wilk struck out seven in three scoreless innings, and Belton Farr hit a two-run homer Friday in Salado's 19-0 five-inning, run-rule victory at home over Burnet.
Salado scored nine runs in the bottom of the first and added eight more in the third to stretch the lead to 18-0.
The Eagles pounded out 13 hits and capitalized on seven Bulldog errors.
Burnet managed just two hits. Three Salado players matched or bettered that, including Wilk, who was 3 for 4 with two runs and three RBIs.
Mac Miller was 3 for 4 with three runs and two RBIs. Ryan Oakes had two hits and drove in a pair of runs.
Mansfield’s Casey Cull, Temple’s Dallas Hankamer, and Granbury’s Dustin Anderson sit atop a crowded leaderboard at the Jimmy Demaret Junior Classic golf tourney in Lakeway.
The trio each carded 2-over 74’s Thursday afternoon at The Hills Country Club’s Live Oak course.
In the Boys 15-18 division, Cull, Hankamer, and Anderson all started on the par-4 10th hole. All three players started off slow, but then settled into their round after that. Cull shot even-par on his opening nine, but double-bogeyed the par-4 first hole followed by a bogey on the second. He had two birdies in his last nine holes to get a few back and finish at 2-over 74.
Hankamer, a freshman at Belton High School, shot 1-over 37 on each of his nines for his 74. He had two birdies on his opening nine, including the difficult par-4 14th and the picturesque 18th hole. On his back nine, he carded a birdie on the par-5 fifth but had two bogeys.
Copperas Cove’s Elle Fox carded a 79 and was tied for seventh in the Girls 12-18 division.
This is the first time the Live Oak course has hosted a Legends Junior Tour event. The course is playing 6,717 yards for the Boys 15-18 division, and 6,076 yards for the girls.
