CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii sports) - The King Mustangs played solid defense and took advantage of a key early-inning error to win their season-opener on Tuesday night at Hamburger Field.

Mustang pitcher Dillon Deluged flashed the leather on two occasions to help snuff out Churchill rallies. King right fielder Michael Garza added a diving catch as well.

King and four other area teams now pack up for the Border Olympic Baseball Tourney on Thursday.
