District 5 team goes for title
Gandy had a double and run-scoring flyout and both Johnson and Jones brought in runs with sacrifice flies. Jared Bell chipped in with a single.
The offense was enough to support four different pitchers who toed the mound, starting off with Chris Laborde and followed by Chris Anderson, Chad Reeves and finally Mark Threlkeld. The latter player, who has been among the offensive standouts for the club, made his first appearance in the tournament as a pitcher and put the Texas East club down in order during the seventh inning to preserve the victory.
