H.S. Baseball: Cayuga beats Cross Roads 12-11 on a walk-off two-run double

PALESTINE —

Keegan Holliman stepped up to the plate for Cayuga in the bottom of the seventh and ripped a two-run double to win the game in walk-off style for the Wildcats.

 

The 12-11 victory against Cross Roads in Cayuga capped off a frantic, back-and-forth game for the Wildcats on Tuesday night.

 

The Wildcats jumped out to a fast start after giving up one run in the top of the first inning. Cayuga scored four in the bottom of the first to bring the score to 4-1 until the third inning.

 

In the third, Cayuga and Cross Roads each punched a run across the plate to bring the score to 5-2.

 

The fourth inning featured one of the most intense moments of the game as Cross Roads put up two runs in the top of the inning to bring the game to a one-run difference.

 

The bottom of the fourth was a momentum changer for the Wildcats as Jason Johnson stepped up to the plate.

 

With three men on base, Johnson had the potential to hit a base hit and most likely score one run in. Johnson instead smashed the ball over the fences for a grand slam to bring the score to 9-4, Cayuga.

 

The Wildcats were sitting pretty until the next half inning when Cross Roads put up six runs to take the lead, followed by another run in the sixth to lead by one, 11-10.

 

After Cross Roads failed to put up any runs in the seventh, Cayuga had a chance to win it with two runs in the bottom of the final inning.

 

They did just that with Holliman’s two-run double to win the game.
