EL CENTRO — Scoring on a sacrifice fly and a misplayed infield hit, the Brawley Union High School Wildcat baseball team squeezed out a season-opening 2-1 victory over the Chula Vista High Spartans at Southwest High’s Mickey Carter field Friday afternoon.

“In some ways it was a typical first game. We’re really young, and we had some sloppy play,” said Brawley Coach Pedro Carranza, who has just three seniors on his squad. “We showed our greenness ... but in the end our pitching prevailed.”
