Newell Fonda Baseball Earns Another Walk-off Win

A two-run bottom of the 7th propelled Newell Fonda to a 6-5 win over OA-BCIG Thursday night, following up their walk-off triumph Tuesday over Coon Rapids Bayard.

OA-BCIG took the lead in the top of the 7th as Brysen Kolar tripled with one out, and scored on an RBI single by Kade Spotts. Mason Hoberman led off the bottom of the 7th with a single. Following an out, Trevor Tauber drew a walk, and Jackson Bellcock tied the game with a double down the right field line that put runners on 2nd and 3rd. A wild pitch was then thrown to pinch hitter Liam Gauley to allow Tauber to score the winning run.

The Falcons went up 4-0 on the strength of a three-run 4th highlighted by an RBI single by Andrew Parks, and an RBI triple by Evan Hoffman. The Mustangs tied the game in the bottom of the 4th after the first two batters were set down. Broc Wilken and Brady Babel had RBI singles, and Max Carlson and Ty Tauber drew bases loaded walks.

Hoberman picked up the win in relief, striking out seven in three innings. Mustangs coach Nate Barron talked afterward…

OA-BCIG now sits at 10-5. They’ll play in the Western Valley Conference Tournament that gets underway Monday.

Newell Fonda’s 5th win in a row puts them at 8-7. The Mustangs play tonight (Fri) at GT-RA.
