Roadrunner Baseball Hosting Blinn

AC News Service

The Angelina College Roadrunner baseball team will open its second three-game series of the conference season Thursday at Roadrunner Field.

Three-game series. It's still taking some getting used to the idea.

AC's move into Region XIV's South Zone has created a completely different schedule. Gone are the once-per-week doubleheaders, replaced instead by home-and-home triple-headers. Last week, the Roadrunners played at San Jacinto on Thursday before hosting the twin bill during the weekend.

This week, Blinn hits Roadrunner Field for Thursday's nine-inning game; then, on Saturday, AC will play two in Brenham.

So far, the changes haven't bothered the 'Runners. AC took a 5-3, 10-inning win over San Jac on the road and split the home series on Sunday to move to 3-4, 2-1 on the season. Cory Lapeze tossed eight innings of shutout ball, and Jerin Spikes closed it out for the 4-0 win over the Gators.

Thursday's game will start at 5 p.m.
