Woodbury Rallies Past Northfield

Behind a gutty pitching performance by Rob Beard, the Warriors rallied for a 4-3 win on Friday night. Beard didn’t have his best stuff and his location was off quite a bit. He walked 6 and was constantly in trouble, but with the defense behind him he was able to pitch through it.

Woodbury jumped to a quick 1-0 lead, but Northfied stormed back to go up 3-1. After rallying to tie it 3-3, going into the bottom of the 7th, Doug Ohs led off with a line drive that the 3rd baseman couldn’t make the play on. After a couple wild pitches, a walk and a stolen base put men on second and third with one out, Northfield stacked their infield with 5 defenders. The Warriors considered squeezing with Joe Holmberg at the plate, but one pitch after taking the bunt off, Holmberg lined a hit off the left field fence to score the winnning run.
