A two-game sweep of Bolton last week followed by an 11-6 dismantling of Houston on Monday gives the Bartlett boys’ baseball team a record of 15-1 heading into back-to-back games against rival Arlington (13-2) this Thursday and Friday.

The Panthers haven’t lost a game since mid-March and are riding a nine-game win streak that includes victories over Rossview, Riverdale and Rock Bridge.

In Monday’s contest against Houston, Bartlett senior pitcher Taylor Wilson got his first win of the season.
