The Houston Tigers made baseball history Wednesday night with an 11-5 Class 2 sectional victory at Conway. It was the first-ever sectional win for the Tigers, who lost their previous five playoff games.

Houston (16-6) will play in its first-ever quarterfinal game on Friday when the Tigers travel to Purdy, which defeated Forsyth 6-4 on Wednesday. The winner will advance to the final four.

More to come Thursday…
