Panola College traveled to UT-Tyler on Monday where the stage was set for
Ponies largest come from behind victory this season.
â€‹In the bottom of the second inning things would get interesting when
Panola had to send 3 pitchers to the mound to get out of self inflicted
melt down on the pitching mound. Lance Ledoux, and Josh Heard would
combine to give up 10 runs, 6 walks, and 8 unearned runs. Jeffrey Holt
would have to come in and record the last out after hitting the first guy
After spotting UT-Tyler with 10 runs Panola wouldn't respond until the top
of the 5th inning when Todd Streck and Colby Price both doubled sparking
the Panola offense for a 6 run inning.
Panolas pitching would manage another meltdown as Rusty Clower would give
up 4 runs in the bottom of the 5th inning by hitting 2 batters and walking
one more. Adding to the tally of 11 unearned runs through 5 innings.
However it didn't take the boys in green much time to respond this time as
Panola would score 2 runs in the top of the 6th inning, and 1 run in the
top of the 7th inning setting the stage for Ponies as they entered the top
of the 9th inning down 5 runs. Panola then mounted a 9 runs in the inning
taking the lead for good 18-14.
Panola would have 5 hitters collect multiple hits for the Ponies, Price-4,
Sojka-3, Morris-3, Morales-3, Bailey-2.
With the win Coach Todd Shelton would collect his 500th career win as a
head coach. And Panola now sits at 15-6 on the season.
