Jake Hager’s clutch hit brought a sudden end to a game that started two days before.
Hager drove in Cory Spangenberg with the winning run in the bottom of the ninth inning of the San Antonio Missions’ 10-9 victory over the Round Rock Express on Sunday at Wolff Stadium.
The game was a continuation of the game suspended Friday night due to weather.
The game resumed Sunday with the Express leading 6-1 in the fourth inning. The Missions scored five runs in the fourth to tie it 6-6.
The Express took a 9-6 lead with three runs in the top of the sixth. The Missions cut it to 9-7 with a run in the bottom of the sixth.
The Missions came back for good with a three-run rally in the bottom of the ninth. Mauricio Dubon led off the inning and eventually scored to cut it to 9-8. Spangenberg doubled to drive in Keston Hiura to tie it.
And at long last, Hager’s line drive single to center scored Spangenberg to end the game.
The resumed game was played as the first game of a doubleheader. The Missions won the second game 6-1.
