TYLER — A tale of two sixth-inning comebacks from the No. 10-ranked Rivercrest Rebels sunk the No. 17 Alto Yellowjackets in the opening two games of the Class 2A Region III Semifinals Thursday at Mike Carter Field.

Alto, the team pegged to finish last in District 22-2A in the preseason, ended the regular season with the district title, and ended its 2021 tenure as one of the final four teams in Region III with a final record of 25-9.
