Galveston scored its first run after the game’s first two pitches, and the Whitecap offense never let up in taking an 11-2 win in seven innings over the Angelina College Roadrunners in Monday’s elimination game of the Region XIV Conference Tournament held at AC.

Davis Jenks and Ian Matos each drove in three runs for the Whitecaps, with Matos adding a solo homer to his credit.

The Roadrunners’ Hayden Baker and Sean Bergeron collected the RBI for AC. Dylan Murphy finished the game with three hits in three at-bats.

Galveston pitcher Kolby Lunsford earned the complete-game win, allowing six hits and striking out six over seven innings.

In the earlier elimination game, Alvin College knocked out Blinn College by a 10-4 score.

The Roadrunners end their season with a record of 28-26.
