Tyson Magana’s one-out single to center field in the bottom of the 10th inning plated Brandon Goynes, and Temple outlasted Killeen 4-3 in extra innings Tuesday night in a must-have win for the Wildcats at Hallford Field.
Goynes singled to left to kick-start the 10th and advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by Adrian Carlos. Xavier Aviles, who went 2-for-3, was intentionally walked ahead of Magana. The designated hitter squared up an 0-1 pitch from right-handed relief pitcher Alnaldo Lonzo for the walk-off RBI.
Temple, which entered sixth in District 12-6A, improved to 9-14-1 and 5-5 in league play while snapping a three-game losing streak that came by a combined 10 runs.
