The Northeast Texas Community College Baseball team opened the Fall campaign with a scrimmage against the Ontario Blue Jays from Toronto, Canada. The Eagles would battle with the Blue Jays for a scheduled 11 inning affair and the Eagles came out on top 5-3.
Coach Andy Morgan would limit his pitchers to one inning each in the opening game of the fall. The eleven pitchers would combine for 15 strikeouts while giving up just three runs on six hits during the eleven inning game and walking 7 total Blue Jays.
JP Mendoza (Kingwood, TX) would have a nice day at the plate for NTCC, going three for five with an RBI and two runs scored to help pace the Eagles to the win. Bennie Qualls (Humble, TX) would also show up at the plate for the Eagles, going two for three with a walk and scoring one run.
The Eagles next home game will be Wednesday, September 21st against Weatherford College with a 12:00pm start scheduled. To keep up to date on the schedule, go to www.ntccealges.com.
