LAREDO, TX (Kiii Sports) - Coastal Bend baseball fans had to travel almost two and a half hours to see one of the area's best baseball match-ups as Calallen bested #8 Carroll 7-2 in the championship of the Border Olympics Tournament in Laredo.

The 'Cats jumped out at a 5-0 lead after three innings and added two more runs late to claim the championship. Both teams are back in tournament play later in the week as Calallen hosts their tournament and Carroll looks to claim another Mira's championship, both of which start Thursday.
