Jace Reese delivered an RBI single into right field in the bottom of the 11th inning on Sunday night in Victoria to score Hayden Vesely and give the Victoria Generals a 2-1 walk-off win over the Acadiana Cane Cutters. With the win, the Generals improve to 17-11 on the season and sweep the Cane Cutters in a two-game home series.

Chase Angelle pitched two hitless frames and Nathan Humpal tossed three innings without allowing a run. Juan Cortina picked up the win by sitting the Cane Cutters down in order in the top of the 11th inning.
The Generals scored the first run of the game in the bottom of the 3rd inning. Brandon Hannon walked and stole second base before J.B. Moss was also issued a free pass. Hannon and Moss executed a double steal before Hannon came into score on an RBI ground out by Kyle Thornell.
The Cane Cutters lone run of the game came in the top of the 4th inning on a Nick Dawson RBI single.
Hannon and Vesely each went 2-for-4 with a run scored and a walk.
The Generals will have the day off on Monday before traveling to Kilgore to take on the East Texas Pump Jacks in a two-game series on Tuesday and Wednesday to complete the first-half of the TCL season.
