SAN ANTONIO — The San Antonio Missions – donning their Flying Chanclas colors and uniforms – managed a dramatic 2-1 win over the visiting Frisco Rough Riders Thursday night, salvaging a three-game series dominated by the opponent up to this point. 

With the game tied 1-1 in the bottom of the ninth, the Flying Chanclas loaded the bases against Frisco hurler Triston Polley. Polley, sporting a low ERA of 1.17 for the year, went on to plunk San Antonio third baseman Connor Hollis, sending the local team home happy. 

The Flying Chanclas remained in position to win thanks to a gem of a performance by starting pitcher Reggie Lawson (7.0 IP, three hits, 1 earned run), who outlasted opposing starter Owen White (6.0 IP, 5 hits, 1 earned run). 

Three San Antonio players tallied multihit games, including Hollis, outfielder Thomas Milone and left-fielder Tirso Ornelas. 

San Antonio next heads out to Frisco for another three-game series against the Rough Riders in their home ballpark.
