Arabians rally to topple Tribe in the eighth


Cook wound up at second base on the Indians' fifth and final error, and Cody Cochran was sent in as a pinch-runner. Turner ordered an intentional walk to Thomas Hall, and Spencer McCool came to the plate.

After two strikes to start the at-bat, a wild pitch advanced the runners to second and third. Turner called timeout to bring in a sixth infielder, positioning all six on the infield grass in an attempt to cut down a runner at the plate. McCool responded by lacing a line drive just past a leaping Bova for the game-winning single.

The junior slugger had flown out deep to right field in two previous at-bats with runners in scoring position, and he was determined to get a run home any way possible.

"I was kind of struggling hitting at first," McCool said. "I was hitting it hard, but I was hitting it right at people. I knew my teammates would back me up, and I had confidence in myself. I've been in those situations before, and I knew what I had to do."

Anderson led 3-0 after the first inning on the strength of RBI-singles from Julius Neal and Fuller. The Arabians got two runs back on RBI-singles by Grile and Cook in the third and took a 6-3 lead with the help of a two-run single by MacMillan and another RBI-single from Cook in the fourth.

The Tribe tied the game with RBI-singles by Bova, Austin Chapman and Odom in the fifth and went back in front on an RBI-single by Tyler Welch in the sixth. Justin Kirkpatrick's sacrifice fly in the seventh tied the game 7-7 and forced extra innings.

Anderson hosts Connersville for a doubleheader Saturday that will include the season debut of top pitchers Jerred Quarterier and Grant Bramwell. Pendleton Heights travels to Yorktown for a Hoosier Heritage Conference doubleheader tonight.
