Scrappers on a winning streak

Posted: Updated:

NILES, Ohio- Late inning drama ruled the night at Eastwood Field, as the Scrappers were walk off winners over the State College Spikes not once, but twice Wednesday night. The victories give them four wins in a row, and ensure a third straight series win.

The excitement started to build in Game 1 of the doubleheader. In the 5th inning, Scrappers catcher Martin Cervenka belted a ball into the left field bullpen to make it a 1-1 ballgame.

Then in the bottom of the 8th, with the bases loaded, Scrappers 2nd baseman Paul Hendrix drew the walk, to give Mahoning Valley the 2-1 win. Harold Guerrero earned the win, to give him a 2-0 record. Victor De Leon was tagged with the loss, making him 1-2 on the season.

The excellent pitching remained for Game 2, as the contest went through the scheduled 7 innings without a run being scored. That all changed in the bottom of the 8th, when right fielder Joel Meija showed off the speed, scoring on a ball hit to mid-center field by Juan Herrera, giving the Scrappers the 1-0 victory.

Mahoning Valley hurler Manuel Carmona was given the victory. He is 2-2 in 2013. Andrew Pierce was given the loss. He is 0-2 on the season.
