NORTHEAST GLENDALE — A comeback didn't look to be in the books for the Vaquero Giants against the Jewish War Veterans/Jewel City Glendale Realtor Cyclones in the Tri-Cities Minor Baseball Tournament opener at Babe Herman Field.
The Giants faced a five-run deficit and were without a hit through two innings Wednesday before they began to chip and eventually run away with a 12-6 victory in five innings. The Cyclones chose not to take the field for their at-bats in the bottom of the fifth knowing a win was out of reach due to a league rule that states no team can score more than five runs in a frame and the allotted time was running out in the game.
"It was awesome, it was just exciting," said the Giants' Alexis Gonsalez, who went two for three with three runs batted in. "We learned a lot thanks to the coaches."
