The Mexia Blackcats moved into the championship game of their own tournament Saturday, facing Riesel, but after duking it out for eight innings the Indians scored the only run of the ball game in the final frame to end up on top, 1-0.
With two out in the top of the eighth, Riesel’s Brooks Embry reached back on an error – one of four by Mexia in the game – and eventually came around to score the winning run after two more errors in the field by the Blackcats.
Eric Wells came in to pitch for Mexia after the run scored and got the Indians Collin Deiterich to fly out to Jimmy Owens in right field to end the inning.
The Blackcats went out 1, 2, 3 in their final at bat.
