Freeman’s Four RBI Lead to Win in Nightcap
Angelina College’s Roadrunners earned a pair of big wins in conference play on Wednesday, sweeping the Paris Dragons 8-6 and 8-5 at Poland Stadium on the AC campus.
The ‘Runners in the opener put together a three-run third inning on just one hit, with Luke Haas reaching on an error, MaCrae Kendrick and Mario Mendoza drawing walks and both Haas and Kendrick scoring on wild pitches. Heladio Moreno drove in a run with an infield hit, giving AC the 3-1 lead after three innings.
Paris would retake the lead in the fifth, but a two-run sixth from the Roadrunners, along with a shutout inning of relief from Jared Barta, sealed the win.
In the nightcap, Jalen Freeman drove in four runs, with three of those coming on a long, three-run homer in the fifth, to lift the Roadrunners to the 8-4 win and the sweep.
AC (17-13, 6-8) will travel to Corsicana on Saturday to face Navarro College in a doubleheader scheduled for a 1 p.m. start. The Roadrunners’ next home stand is Saturday, March 26 against Tyler Junior College.
