Caleb Hill produced two hits, scored twice and generally made a nuisance of himself Thursday night as the Acadiana Cane Cutters downed the Flying Chanclas de San Antonio, 3-1, at Youngsville, La.
The loss was the second in two nights for the Chanclas at the hands of the Cane Cutters at Fabacher Field.
Acadiana no-hit San Antonio in a 5-0 victory on Wednesday. Three Cane Cutters pitchers — Bailey Holstein, Tyler Booth and Matthew Adams — spaced out nine hits for the victory in the series finale.
Hill’s two-out triple highlighted the fourth inning for Acadiana. Later, he scored the first run of the game on a single by Ethan Lege.
Newcomer Bryan Aguilar sparked an uprising that allowed the Chanclas to tie the game. Aguilar doubled, stole third and came home to knot the score at 1-1 in the top of the seventh.
In the bottom half, two Chanclas errors helped the Cane Cutters regain the lead.
Hill opened the inning with a bunt and would up on second courtesy of a miscue by catcher Nick Wolff. Hill scored when Peyton LeJeune reached on a single and an error on right fielder Jordan Thompson.
The Cane Cutters struck again in the eighth. Logan McLeod singled, stole second and moved to third on a hit by Trace Henry. Hill followed with an RBI single for a 3-1 lead.
The Chanclas had a chance to tie it in the ninth but came up short. With two outs, Thompson singled and Ryan Flores doubled to put runners at second and third. Adams got out of it by striking out Kyte McDonald to end the game.
San Antonio entered the series in Louisiana on a four-game winning streak, including three wins at Wolff Stadium against Acadiana.
The scheduled opener of the Texas Collegiate League series in Youngsville wasn’t played Tuesday because of poor field conditions, reducing the series to two games. By losing the last two nights, the Flying Chanclas fell to 1-4 on the road this season.
San Antonio 1 – 9 – 2
