Starting pitcher Eric Gleese held the Cowboys at bay for almost eight innings Saturday night in Alpine, Texas, finally allowing a late run in a stellar playoff outing in a hostile road environment as the Invaders topped the Cowboys 9-1 and earned a berth in the Pecos League Championship Series.

The Invaders will host the first two games of the best-of-five series Monday and Tuesday night at Joe Bauman Stadium.
The Invaders offense returned to form after Friday night’s loss, where the Invaders were down big and only managed a solo homer in the ninth.
Roswell scored a run in the first, third and fifth innings while Gleese cut through the Cowboys. Kaohu Gaspar, who hit a grand slam in the Game 1 victory, hit a solo homer to open the game. Gaspar was 2-for-4 with two runs scored and a walk.
