FARGO, N.D. – Trailing 4-0 heading into the bottom of the seventh and seemingly destined to lose, Stoneyard of Wisconsin pulled off an improbable nine-inning, 5-4, thriller at the expense of the Bucknell A’s of Lacy, Wash., Thursday, in an A-Major opening game for both ball clubs.

Stoneyard took advantage of an error, a base hit, and two wild pitches, to even the score and send the game into extra innings.

After a scoreless eighth, the Wisconsin ball club completed the comeback in the ninth when Chad Goytowski singled up the middle to drive in the winning run.

Brian Lathrop went the distance for Stoneyard to pick up the win, allowing three earned runs on 14 hits with four walks and eight strikeouts.

Lathrop escaped deep trouble in the top of the ninth when the A’s loaded the bases, but he reached back for the strikeout on a full count to end the inning.

Stoneyard batsmen collected eight hits led by Devin Rogers, 3-fo-4, Jerry Showers, 2-for-5, Goytowski, 2-for-5, and Austin Showers, 1-for-3.

For the A’s, Darin Michael, Shane Alder, Trevor Knight and Scott Anderson had two hits each, while Kasey Knight and Al Khalaf each had a hit.

Left-hander Rob Gunter started for the A’s and went 6 2/3 innings, scattering six hits and giving up two earned runs along with nine strikeouts. Dave Drotzman relieved Gunter in the seventh and pitched the final 2 1/3 innings and was saddled with the loss after allowing just two hits, but walked six and struck out one.

    QUAD CITIES, IA/IL – The Roseville, Calif. Eagles have the kind of lineup that can give many a pitcher a severe case of the jitters. They’ve got the speedsters up front slapping and poking their way on base, and the big bashers lining up to drive them in.

    Stoneyard of Madison, Wisc. can attest to that.

    In the bottom of the first inning, Aaron Glaum – possibly the fastest man in the World Series – hit a line shot into the left-centerfield gap, and before the ball could be flagged down he was rounding third and heading for home for an inside the park home run.

    That huge hit was the spark that ignited the Eagles’ offense and led to a 7-0 victory to claim the NAFA World Series A-Major Division Championship, Sunday, at Green Valley Sports Complex in Moline, Ill.

    “It’s a great combination to have speed up front in Jabari (Wimbs) and Aaron, and power hitters that go three, four, five, six and seven and then we roll the lineup to speed again,” said Eagles’ player and manager Mario Pereira, who bats third. “Aaron set the tone for us today.”
