Harlingen opens District 32-6A play with 4-1 victory over Rivera

HARLINGEN — Last season the Harlingen Cardinals struggled through a tough season.

But so far this year, the Red Birds seem to be on the rise as they entered their District 32-6A schedule against Brownsville Rivera at home on Tuesday with a very respectable 7-2 record.

And after a strong outing by ace Jaedon Wynn, the Cards are now 8-2 and, more importantly, 1-0 in league play as they beat the Raiders 4-1.

The Cardinals scored a run in the first inning, two in the third and another in the fourth to ice the game.

“We had a good game, Jaedon Wynn threw an excellent game only giving up one run while getting nine strikeouts,” said Harlingen head coach Bryan Aughney. “On the flip side their (Rivera) pitcher threw well, too and kept us off balance. Lucky for us we got some key hits with guys in scoring position and we were able to get some runs.”
