Wildcats Baseball Team Wins Over Marshall With Seventh Inning Rally

Smiley face

Wildcat Colby Albritton smashed a clutch single into left center field to drive in the tying and winning run as the Wildcats Baseball Team rallied with two runs in the bottom of the seventh to defeat Marshall, 5-4 in a district game Tuesday night (March 23) at Wildcat Park.

Aiken Owens got the inning started drawing a walk on a close 3-2 pitch. Dawson Carpenter ran for Owens. Colt Silman hit a slow roller to shortstop that he beat out for a base hit. Both runners advanced a base on a wild pitch. Then came Albritton’s heroics. Albritton was 3 for 3 on this night.

The rally made a winner of pitcher Hayden Hurst who threw all 7 innings allowing only 3 hits and 3 earned runs while striking out 12 and walking only 2. After Marshall took a 2-0 lead in the top of the first, the Wildcats took the lead with 3 runs in the bottom of the third. Owens also got that inning started when he was hit by a pitch. Albritton singled. Mayer Millsap got on on a fielders’ choice when the Mavs forced out Albritton at second. With runners at the corners, the Wildcats got singles from Matthew Singleton that scored one and from Kaden Wallace that plated two more. Marshall took the lead with 2 runs in the top of the fifth, one that scored due to a Wildcats’ error. That set the table for the Wildcats dramatic rally.

The Wildcats improve to 3-1 in district play. Their season record is now 6-11. The Wildcats continue district play at Pine Tree Friday night.
