ATHENS BASEBALL GRABS WALK-OFF WIN OVER SPENCER
ATHENS – Kody Lepak had a walk-off single in the bottom of the seventh inning to push Athens past Spencer 3-2 in a nonconference baseball game Friday at Tucker Westfall Field.
Spencer led 2-0 on a fielder’s choice RBI by Kaiden Miller and a double steal in the third inning.
Athens responded with a run in the bottom of the frame and tied the game in the fourth with a run on a two-out error by Spencer.
The score remained tied until the seventh when Brooks Kraus reached on an error, stole second, moved to third on a groundout, and scored on Lepak’s single to centerfield.
Cooper Diedrich went the distance for Athens (9-6), striking out eight.
Madden Prybylski suffered the loss for the Rockets (6-13). He did not strike out a batter and walked two while allowing just four hits in a complete game.
Spencer closes out its regular season at home against Rib Lake on Monday. Athens will play at home against Pittsville on Monday, travel to Eau Claire Regis on Tuesday and finish its regular season at home Thursday against Stevens Point Pacelli.
