On Monday Night, we were in Mineola for the non district baseball matchup between the Mineola Yellowjackets and the Gladewater Bears. Gladewater jumped out to an early 2-0 lead with back to back doubles from Zach Polanco and DJ Allen. Mineola answered back in the bottom of the first inning by scoring 5 runs on only 1 hit. They were aided by 3 Gladewater errors and 4 hit batters. Gladewater would strike for another run in the 3rd inning on a RBI double by Austin Verner to make the score 5-3. Kaden Bell was lights out on the mound after the 3rd inning for Mineola. Bell allowed no hits in the final 3 innings and only one baserunner on an error. Bell pitched 7 innings, gave up 7 hits, and 3 runs with 4 strikeouts. Mineola got the victory 5-3 over Gladewater.
