The match-up had all the makings of a classic all-star showdown.
After a couple of days of games in the District 22 Junior Division all-star tournament at the Alice City West Park, the Alice American and Falfurrias squads met for a ticket to the tournament’s championship game.
Both teams came in unbeaten and poised for victory, however, in just an inning, the boys from Alice proved to be too much for Falfurrias.
Behind a big-time home run by C.J. Flores, Alice ran up the score in the second inning and cruised it the rest of the way.
A.J. Arellano started on the mound for Alice and was given the win. Brian Gutierrez earned the save.
Bishop won its semifinal game in the tournament Wednesday, eliminating Freer. They will now face Falfurrias with the winning taking on Alice Friday night for the tournament championship.
