It was Senior Night for the Avonworth boys varsity baseball team Wednesday, and they made it a memorable one, twice coming from behind to defeat non-section opponent Our Lady of Sacred Heart in nine innings.

Early in the game, the Lopes struggled to take advantage of scoring opportunities, and OLSH took a 3-2 lead in the fourth inning on a home run to left field.

Senior Corey Dick cracked a two-out home run over the right-centerfield fence in the bottom of the sixth to tie the game, 3-3.

The game remained tied, forcing extra innings, and in the top of the ninth the Chargers scored three two-out runs to take a 6-3 lead.

However, Avonworth mounted a rally of its own. Jacob Gustic rapped a one-out single to right. Tim Stewart walked with two outs, and Turner Grau’s single plated a run, closing the gap to 6-4. Ryan Felter’s hot smash past the third baseman tied the score, 6-6. Jax Miller singled, and pinch-runner Zach Homol raced to third. The game ended when Dick lined a single to left field to win the game.

Gustic earned the win in relief.

The Lopes finished the regular season with a 9-3 section record, 14-4 overall.

Honored seniors include Alex Osborne, Jacob Jaillet, and Corey Dick.

WPIAL will announce playoff pairings/brackets Friday afternoon. Avonworth finished second in its section.
