STRATFORD – Kale Weisenberger knocked in pinch runner Johnny Seitz with the winning run with two outs in the bottom of the seventh to give the Stratford baseball team a 3-2 walk-off win over Marathon on Friday at the Tiger Stadium Baseball Field.
The Tigers loaded the bases with two outs in the final inning and Weisenberger hit a bouncer to third base with Seitz barely beating the throw home to score the game-winner.

Colten Schillinger had a pair of doubles and drove in a run for Stratford, which improves to 13-1 overall and 7-1 in the Marawood South.
Brock Warren suffered the loss for Marathon (10-6, 4-4 Marawood South), striking out six and walking one in a complete-game effort.
