The McLennan Baseball team saw their season come to an end Monday night in San Angelo as New Mexico Junior College swept their way to the Region Five Title.
The Highlanders tied the game at two in the second, but the Thunderbirds would take back the lead in the 3rd and never relenquish it.
McLennan did not go quietly though down by as many as seven runs the Highlanders chipped away to make it 13-7, then a pair of homeruns closed the gap to 13-11, heading to the ninth inning. But the highlanders ran out of gas dropping their second game in as many days against the Thunderbirds.
McLennan was able to clinch a second place finish in the region five tournament after a 5-4 walk-off win against Odessa College on Monday Afternoon.
