Warriors complete comeback with run in extras, 7-6

April 27, 2013

    WOODBURN—In the battle of two teams struggling for wins, Woodlan snuck out a home victory on the strength of a ninth inning wild pitch that scored the Ben Schwartz from third base for a 7-6 Warrior victory.
    Schwartz, a freshman, was not even supposed to bat in the game as he was simply a pinch runner for junior Garrett VanBrocklin in the bottom of the seventh inning. When the Warriors managed to tie the game with a run in their half of the seventh, VanBrocklin could not reenter because he had already been subbed for twice.
