NA Overcomes Connellsville’s 7-Run Rally With Walk-Off Win

Posted on:

A bases-loaded walk by Cam Medic brought home Logan Andreyko in the bottom of the seventh to propel North Allegheny to an 8-7 non-section victory over Connellsville on Thursday afternoon. The Tigers saw a 7-0 lead evaporate in the late innings but bounced back in the seventh to earn their second walk-off win of the season.  

The Tigers constructed a 7-0 lead by the fourth inning thanks to a potent batting order, led by freshman Cole Young’s 3 for 3, four RBI performance. Joey Colella added a pair of RBI’s and C.J. Weller posted a 2 for 4 day with two runs scored.

Connellsville rallied back with six runs in the fifth inning and one more in the sixth to knot the score at 7-7. That set the stage for Medic’s heroics in the bottom of the seventh to give NA an 8-7 victory.

Reliever Ben Tharpe earned the victory for North Allegheny with 2.1 scoreless innings and four strike outs. Connellsville starter Eric Petraglia took the loss with 6.1 innings on the bump, surrendering all eight runs (seven earned) to the Tigers.

North Allegheny improves to 4-3 overall on the season. The Tigers will play in their Section 1-6A opener on Monday at Central Catholic at 4:00 p.m.
