April 26 baseball recaps
MONITEAU 4, BROOKVILLE 3
BUTLER, Pa. – A dropped fly ball to left field on a ball hit by Dawson Wallace allowed Moniteau to walk off visiting Brookville, 4-3, at Michelle Krill Field at Historic Pullman Park in Butler.
Brookville had rallied to tie the game at three with two runs in the top of the seventh, but Moniteau immediately had the answer in the bottom of the inning when Keagan Book singled leading off the inning and took second on a wild pitch. Mason Mershimer was then intentionally walked, and a wild pitch put runners on second and third. Branson Carson was then intentionally walked bringing up Wallace, who lofted a fly ball to left that left fielder Bay Harper dropped – Harper actually threw to third to force a runner but the game was over.
The Raiders tied the game with two runs in the top of the seventh with the first run of the inning scoring on a Jace Miner groundout and the next one on a Hunter Geer groundout.
