The pitching change did little to help Houston’s situation, with two more runs scoring on wild pitches as WHS kept up the pressure with aggressive base running.
The Texans coach again changed pitchers, trying to stem the flow of Weatherford runs. Batting around in the order in the second inning, Healy took the third pitcher to task, stroking a big hit into deep right-center. The blast cleared the bases, but when Healy tried to turn the triple into a 4-bagger, the Texans relay found home plate ahead of the Roos catcher for the final out of the inning.
When the dust had cleared, WHS had scored nine 2-out runs and led the game 10 -0.
Weatherford scored another run in the fourth, while Riney and Huffman kept Houston at bay, ending the game in five innings per the mercy rule.
