The Cardinals and Giants battled down to the wire in the Nacogdoches Boys Youth Baseball Association 10U city championship. It was the Cards that forced the extra game in the double-elimination tournament and then rallied with a pair of runs driven in by Trey Pennywell in the sixth to clinch the 9-8 victory on Thursday night at the Nacogdoches City Baseball Complex.
Pennywell led the Cardinals at the dish with four RBIs in the contest. He finished 2-for-3 at the plate. He pushed in runs with a triple in the second frame and a single in the sixth to clinch the title.
