Victoria Generals

Victoria Generals

Giancarlo Servin had only a walk to show for his four plate appearances when he batted in the bottom of the 11th inning.

But Servin felt much better about the night after his single to center field scored Michael Williams to give the Victoria Generals a 3-2 walk-off win over the Texas Marshals on Thursday at Riverside Stadium.

Williams and Chase Evans drew back-to-back walks to start the inning before moving up a base on a sacrifice by Marshall Skinner.

Servin’s RBI single brought home the Generals’ first run since the fourth when they scored twice.

Williams singled and went to third on a single by Skinner before a walk to Servin loaded the bases.

Brady Disher, who had two of the Generals’ six hits, singled to score Williams and Servin.

Generals starting pitcher Kyle Backhus allowed only one run, but left the game in the sixth inning after issuing his ninth walk.

The Marshals, who had four hits, tied the game on a solo home run by Zavier Moore over the left-center field fence in the seventh.

Garrett Alexander pitched the final two innings to pick up the win for the Generals.

Alexander had four strikeouts and struck out the side in the top of the 11th.

The teams return to Riverside Stadium to wrap up the series at 7:05 p.m. Friday. The game will be a free ticket night sponsored by Caterpillar.
