ODESSA, Tx (ABC Big 2/Fox 24) – Playing in the cold and rain was well worth it for the Permian baseball team.
After a slow start, Permian was able to get the offense going in the fifth inning of Saturday’s game against rival Lee. The teams were tied 1-1 going into the final game of the series.
With the bases loaded, Permian’s Xavier Melendez hit a line drive down the right field line. All three runners scored and Melendez landed on third. An error brought him home to give Permian a 5-2 lead in the bottom of the fifth. MOJO kept Lee scoreless the next two innings to win the game and win the series two games to one.
