With rain threatening again on Friday, the Mexia Blackcats moved forward with their home baseball game with the Wortham Bulldogs at Black Cat Field, splashing their way to a 4-3 comeback win.
Avery Williams started the game on the mound for the Blackcats, shutting down the Wortham hitters on 16 pitches, including a strikeout. Mexia got on the board in the bottom of the first, when Williams sacrifice fly scored Ronald Jackson, who singled earlier, from third base to give them a 1-0 lead.
Rain drops began falling in the first inning and by the second, the drops were getting bigger and the baseball must have seemed that way to the Bulldog batters as they produced two walks, a hit and three runs to take a 3-1 lead, in which Williams seemed to start having a little trouble getting his footing right on the mound with slick spots starting to form in crucial places.
