TJC baseball knocked out of D3 World Series

TYLER, TEXAS (KLTV) - The amazing season for the TJC baseball team has come to an end.

An 11-3 loss to Niagara in the Division III World Series has eliminated the Apaches from national title contention.

After defeating St. Cloud to open the World Series, TJC lost to Joliet in the 2nd round before winning an epic elimination game against Gloucester 12-11 on Monday.

In the end, errors did the Apaches in.

Niagara did bang out 16 hits, but benefited from 5 Apaches errors.

"It's not easy and you really have to have a few things go your way throughout the week," said head coach Doug Wren, "There were a couple of bounces and call that didn't go our way, which is baseball. You really have to have it all going for you this week and play well."

TJC jumped out to a 2-0 lead after the top of the 1st.

Niagara would answer with two in the bottom.

The Apaches would score a single run in the 3rd only to be matched by Niagara, who would score four more in the 4th and three more in the 5th.

A single run in the 8th would end the game by run-rule.

"At times we did play well and at times we didn't," said Wren, "We came a little short and just didn't play well enough today to extend it another day."

TJC ends the year with a 38-20 record.
