Goliad wins G2, falls to Banquete in G3

Goliad baseball’s great 2019 season ended in defeat on Saturday.

After dropping game one of their third-round playoff series against Banquete on Friday, the Tigers needed to sweep a pair of Saturday games to advance in Three Rivers. In game one, Goliad seemed poised to do just that, hammering the Bulldogs to the tune of a 15-0, run-rule victory. The game went just five innings.

In game two however, Goliad’s luck ran out. The Tigers fell to Banquete, 5-3 in the nightcap to see their season end just short of the regional finals.

Banquete won three of their four contests against Goliad this season.
