WORTHINGTON — Four runs in the bottom of the seventh inning lifted the Worthington American Legion baseball team to a 5-4 victory over Tracy Monday night.
It was the first game of the season for Worthington.
The rally began with one out as Kent Lais was hit by a pitch. Coy Turner then walked, and after a pop out, Tommy Lais ripped a towering two-run double off the left-field fence. Cooper McCoy singled to left, scoring Turner. Ethan Meyer then hit a hard ground ball to third base, which was mishandled by the first baseman, allowing McCoy to score the winning run.
Kent Lais started on the mound and threw three solid innings. Triston Sauerbrei followed, walking one and striking out six through four innings, allowing just one earned run.
Tracy pitcher Ashton Squires no-hit Worthington through six innings. He was helped by an excellent defense that made plays on would-be extra base hits.
Tracy 100 020 1 — 4-5-3
Worthington 000 010 4 — 5-3-4
