GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas -- K.C. Huth hit a two-run bloop single in the seventh inning, and the Railroaders came from behind for the second consecutive night and beat the Texas AirHogs 6-3 at AirHogs Stadium on Friday.
Huth gave Cleburne its first lead of the game after the AirHogs scored in the sixth, and the Railroaders won their second straight game when trailing after six innings after failing to do so in the first 35.
Huth later stole both second and third, and scored on a wild pitch to extend the lead. He also tied a season high with 4 RBI following a two-run double in the eighth.
Dylan Mouzakes earned his sixth win after giving up just one run with seven strikeouts over six innings, and Winston Abreu earned his 17th save after Cortland Cox gave up a pair of runs in the ninth and exited with the tying run on deck.
Blake Grant-Parks finished 1-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored. Geraldo Valentin hit two singles and scored after both, and Axel Johnson went 2-for-3 with a pair of runs scored.
In the heart of Cleburne’s order, those three combined to go 5-for-10 with five of Cleburne’s six runs.
Texas starter Austin Kubitza gave up just two hits over five-plus scoreless innings, but reliever Scott Firth was tagged for all six runs over 2.2 innings.
Game 3 of the four-game series is set for 7:05 p.m. Saturday night and can be heard live on the Railroader Radio Network with coverage beginning 20 minutes prior.
Cleburne returns home for a three-game series with the Lincoln Saltdogs on Monday. Good seats are still available and can be purchased at www.railroaderbaseball.com or by visiting the
