Victoria Generals Head Into TCL Championship Series
It took extra innings for the Victoria Generals to pull off what would be a walk-off 8-7 win over the Brazos Valley Bombers, and into the Texas Collegiate League Championship Series.
With one out in the bottom of the 11th inning of Sunday night's opening game of the TCL playoffs, Ryan Guedry delivered a single to left-field to score Eric Weiss from second base and give the Generals the win, propelling them into the TCL Championship Series.
The Generals had battled back from a 7-4 deficit, scoring three runs in the bottom of the ninth inning to tie the game at 7-7 and send it into extra innings.
Tanner Green picked up the win on his birthday, pitching the final 2.1 innings while giving up just one hit with three strikeouts. With the win, the Generals advance to the TCL Championship Series and will face the East Texas Pump Jacks as they defeated the Alexandria Aces in the other playoff game in the league on Sunday night. The Generals will host game one of the series at Riverside Stadium tonight night at 7:05pm.
The Generals will travel to Kilgore for game two of the series on Tuesday night. If a third game is needed, it will be played in Kilgore on Wednesday. It will be the second time in three years that the Generals and Pump Jacks square off in the TCL Championship Series. The Generals captured the TCL title over the Pump Jacks in 2010.
