TJC falls in national championship

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - The TJC Apaches had a lot fight, but in the end they couldn't overcome the Gloucester Roadrunners.  After falling behind 4 to 1 to the number one team in the tournament, the Apaches rallied to score three runs in the 7th inning.  TJC stranded a runner at third and the game eventually went to extra innings.

Gloucester scored one run in the tenth, and that was enough to win their sixth baseball national championship 5 to 4.

After losing to Gloucester in ten innings on Saturday, TJC put together four straight wins in three days.  The Apaches needed to a win Wednesday night to force a sudden death championship on Thursday.  The game's start time was delayed by an hour thanks to a wet field.
