West Orange-Stark 5, Buna
WEST ORANGE — There is something special in the air for West Orange-Stark baseball this season.
The Buna Cougars found that out the hard way Tuesday night.
Jacob Hryhorchuk’s two-run single with two outs in the bottom of the seventh brought home the winning run as the Mustangs erased a 4-0 deficit going into the inning to pull out a dramatic 5-4 District 21-3A victory at Anderson Field as WO-S improved to 16-1 overall and more importantly a perfect 4-0 mark in loop play.
Grant Anderson, despite battling a knee injury, worked all seven innings on the hill for the Mustangs. He allowed seven hits while fanning nine and walking three.
“I couldn’t be more prouder of the kids,” said Mustang coach Shea Landry. “We always preach to them about playing the whole seven innings out. We could’ve got down on ourselves there in the seventh and we didn’t. They just love to compete, that’s what I love about this group. We’ve won four in a row to start district and each one has had plenty of drama. I think I’m starting to get a few gray hairs here and there but it’s been fun.”
