Box Score

The Navarre Raiders escaped with a narrow, 10-9 victory over the host Booker T. Washington Wildcats on Thursday night, in a high-scoring shootout with five lead changes. The Raiders (3-3) grabbed the lead for good with five runs in the top of the fourth inning, before tacking on the deciding run in the top of the sixth inning.

Trailing 8-4 heading into the top of the fourth, Navarre erupted for five runs that put it in the driver’s seat. With one out, Tyler England singled, Jozef Vanselow doubled and Reid Travis was hit by a pitch that loaded the bases. Korey Betts worked an RBI walk that plated England and Harrison Dorsey followed with a sac-fly RBI on a flyout to center field. Ethan Andre was hit by a pitch that loaded the bases back up, and a passed ball allowed Travis to then come home. Bailey Huston then capped off the big frame with a two-RBI single to left.

Ethan Andre delivered the winning run on a solo home run leading off the sixth inning.

The Wildcats (2-4) made their final rally bid in the bottom of the sixth. Mason McClammy and Zavion Anderson both singled, before a fielder’s choice off the bat of Robert Sherlock left runners on the corners. Christian Pollard came through with a base hit to left field that brought in McClammy to pull within a run, but the Raiders got a ground out to the next batter to escape the threat.

Junior Rashad Blount connected for his first career home run for the Wildcats. Blount’s two-run shot left the big ball park and gave Booker T. Washington a 7-4 lead in the bottom of the second. Blount was 3-for-4 with three RBIs and two runs to lead his team.
