It wasnâ€™t exactly a night full of offense for Brownfield and Big Spring in their matchup Tuesday at Steer Park.
Big Spring third baseman Jacob Acosta changed all that with one swing, though.
Acostaâ€™s three-run RBI double sparked a five-run third inning as the Steers went on to beat the Cubs 12-2 in five innings.
The Steers were up 3-1 before Acostaâ€™s blast to left field, but they hadnâ€™t had an extra base hit. Ascotaâ€™s double went past the Brownfield left-fielder and Gunnar Kennedy, Jared Deporto and Max Pappajohn were sent home. The Steers went from a 3-1 lead to an 8-1 lead.
