SUGAR LAND – One winner-take-all game remaining for an invitation to Colorado.
Angelina College's Roadrunners, hoping to close out the tournament on Monday against San Jacinto College, will instead have to wait until Tuesday for their shot after a 10-1 loss to the Gators at the Region XIV Tournament in Sugar Land.
After getting blanked by AC pitcher John King two games ago, the Gators came out swinging, piling up 13 hits for their 10 runs against two Roadrunner pitchers. San Jac designated hitter Gonzalo Sosa went 3-for-4 with an RBI, Jon Meyer managed to drive in two runs with a bunt and Austin Boyd added two more RBI for the Gators.
AC's lone run came after Tyler Kendrick doubled and scored on an error. The Roadrunners put runers on board in eight of the nine innings but couldn't find the clutch hits they'd managed the night before in a 16-2 win over Blinn College.
Tuesday's big finale is scheduled for an 11 a.m. start, with pitcher Jacob Howell scheduled to draw the starting nod for the Roadrunners. Viewers can watch the live stream via TSRN Sports.
