MILLCREEK — It was a tense opener for Corry’s 11-year-old boys in all-star play on Thursday, but the locals pulled out a 5-4 win over LeBoeuf.
Tanner Martin pitched five strong innings allowing three hits and two walks, striking out six. J.P. Goodsel worked the crucial sixth, fanning two.
Logan Triscuit drove in three runs with two hits. He won it with a walk-off, inside-the-park home run.
“Pitching and defense were the key,” said coach Joe Marrs about the thrilling win. “The key play was in the fifth inning, an awesome defensive play, one of the best you will ever see.”
Corry led 4-2 when Glazier led off with a double, scoring on a single by Filutze.
Shortstop Goodsel leaped for a pop-up, but the ball snow-coned his glove and fell out. Left fielder Nick Marrs came charging in, dove and caught the ball. He rolled over and fired to the outstretched Brady Davis at second base for a stunning double play, ending the rally.
After a LeBoeuf triple in the sixth, Goodsel took over on the hill and retired the side 1-2-3.
Triscuit lined the first pitch he saw down the right field line and never stopped running until he scored the winning run.
Back in the second, Jimmy Donaldson and Davis reached on errors. After two strikeouts and a wild pitch, Triscuit had a two-run single to right.
In the third, Corry went up 4-1. Jack Gill walked, Goodsel following with an RBI double. He later scored on an an overthrow to first base.
Corry continues District 3 action Saturday at 3 p.m. against Erie.
