Honkers blow 7-1 lead, but get walk-off victory in 10th
(ABC 6 News) — It was another game for the Honkers where they snatched victory from the jaws of defeat.
After leading 7-1 in the fourth inning, the Loggers rallied back and tied it in the top of the eighth on a pair of sac flys.
Honkers had opportunities to retake the lead in both the bottom of the eighth and ninth innings but grounded out with runners in scoring position.
Fresno State commit Carson Revay took the mound for the Honkers in the late innings and he got 2 big strikeouts in the top of the ninth inning.
The game eventually entered extras, the first extra-inning game for the Honkers this summer. The Honkers were able to capitalize. Theo Hardy, who pinch ran for Carson Stevens, advanced to third on a bunt from Alex Ritzer and eventually scored on a wild pitch to win the game for Rochester.
With the victory, the Honkers improve to 3-2 in the second half. They’ll look for the sweep over the Loggers Monday night on the road. First pitch is set for 6:35 p.m.
