Henshaw Homer Part of Big Sixth Inning
Mitch Henshaw’s two-run homer helped fuel a four-run sixth inning, and pitchers Bailey Holstein and Reid Garrett teamed up on the mound to lead the Angelina College Roadrunners to a 6-5 series-opening win over Northeast Texas Community College Thursday at Roadrunner Field in Lufkin.
The series will resume on Sunday.
AC trailed 5-2 heading into the sixth before Henshaw’s blast helped the four-run rally. Garrett kept the Eagles scoreless the rest of the way, and the Roadrunners (12-13 in conference play) remain in a two-way tie with Paris College for the fourth spot in the standings with five games to play in the regular season.
Sunday’s doubleheader will start at 2 p.m. at Roadrunner Field.
