Rocha knocks in game winning

The dog pile at the end of a baseball game signifi es one thing-victory. The Gatorade bucket shower is what usually follows. Such was the case on Saturday as gloves fl ew in the air, players bounded out of the dugout and bodies heaped into a massive victory celebration after Groesbeck’s  1-0 series clincher over China Spring. When it was over, the Goats stood as bi-district champs and head coach Cameron Sellstromwell,  he just stood all wet, but smiling from ear-to-ear.
