Veterans baseball falls, HoCo waits until Tuesday to decide its fate
The Warhawks had taken a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the sixth inning in their Final Four matchup with Carrollton and were just three outs away from moving to 1-0 in the three-game series.
But then, in the top of the 7th, Carrollton tied it at two. Later in the inning, Will Hesterlee’s 3-run homerun gave Carrollton a 5-2 lead.
Veterans added a run in the bottom of the seventh but that’s all it could do. The Warhawks also gave up five runs in Game 2, falling 5-4 in a game that ended their season.
