CLEBURNE, Texas -- Patrick Mincey gave up two runs over eight innings, but the Cleburne Railroaders lost 5-1 to the Texas AirHogs at The Depot on Tuesday night.
Mincey’s eight-inning performance was his third-longest of 2017, but the Railroaders scored just once on three hits and the AirHogs clinched the series with a chance to sweep on Wednesday.
Hunter Courson hit his first professional homer in only his second game with a solo shot to left that cut the Texas lead to 2-1 in the sixth inning, but Cortland Cox gave up three runs on three hits with a pair of walks in the ninth.
K.C. Huth singled with two outs in the eighth, and Mitch Glasser singled in the first, but Tyler Bremer retired 14 consecutive Railroaders after Glasser’s hit and gave up just one run on three hits over 7.2 innings.
Cleburne struck out just three times, but also walked only twice, and the AirHogs won their third consecutive game against the Railroaders and ninth in 11 games overall.
Game 3 of the three-game set is scheduled for 7:06 p.m. on Wednesday night. Tickets are still available and can be purchased at www.railroaderbaseball.com or by visiting the ticket office located near the main gate at The Depot.
