Trojans and Tigers go extra to gain wins

POTOSI – The Potosi Trojans looked to have a sure thing after six innings of play, but a couple of fielding mistakes let the Ste. Genevieve Dragons back into the game and the Trojans had to use an extra inning to record a 4-3 conference win.

The Trojans led 3-0 going into the top of the seventh, but two pop flies were dropped and the Dragons rallied with three more hits to tie the score. Both teams went scoreless for their next at bats, but in the bottom of the eighth, Potosi put together a no-hit rally to score the winning run.

Jared Politte walked and was sacrificed to second, and the Dragon pitchers walked two more batters to fill the bases. J.R. White got the winning RBI with a sacrifice fly to the outfield to score Politte.

Potosi, 4-8 and 3-7 in conference, will play next at Herculaneum. Ste. Genevieve, 3-10 and 1-8 MAAA, will host Fredericktown this afternoon.

Arcadia Valley 7, Valle 5, 11 innings

STE. GENEVIEVE – The Arcadia Valley Tigers, like the Ste. Genevieve Dragons, scored three runs in the top of the seventh inning to stay alive, but for the Tigers it would lead to a win as they defeated the Valle Warriors 7-5 in 11 innings.

Like Potosi, the Tigers used the free base to get the winning runs. Dereck Wilson walked to start off the 11th inning and was sacrificed to second, but third base was left unattended on the play and Wilson made it a two-base sacrifice. Luchas Laird hit a single to score Wilson. Laird would score on a wild-pitch ball four to Logan Smith for the extra run.

Smith picked up the win as he pitched the last three innings for the Tigers. Nathan Grass received the loss, throwing the last four innings for the Warriors.
