AC Offense Explodes for 21 Runs in Doubleheader

The Lady Roadrunner bats were primed and ready for Saturday’s Region XIV conference doubleheader against Blinn College. The result was a pair of Angelina College wins in run-rule fashion, with AC taking both games of Saturday’s doubleheader by 10-2, 11-2 scores at the Phillips Family Sports Complex on the AC campus.

The two wins pushed AC’s record to 20 wins against six losses. More importantly, the sweep moved the Lady Roadrunners to 3-1 in league play.

Sara Mayes homered and drove in two runs in the 10-2 win in the opener. Lace Tangianau drove in three runs, and Bailey Frenzel and Haley Primrose finished with two RBI each. Primrose pitched a complete-game win in the circle, striking out four and allowing just two earned runs over five innings.

Six Lady ‘Runners drove in runs in the nightcap, with Madi Baker, Ashtyn Alvarez, Taylor Hartsell and Alyssa Collazo each driving in two runs. Frenzel and Reagan Smith also added RBI in the win.
