The Wildcats picked up the game winning run in extras on Tuesday night.
In what would prove to be a night of defensive gems, it was the Wildcat’s offense that would lead the home side through for a tough 3-2 win over Boone (3-6-1, 1-3-1) in nine-innings.
After trading runs with the Braves on multiple occasions, the Braves came close to reclaiming the lead, but thanks to a dazzling diving catch in center by Chris Pizarro, the Wildcats (6-5, 3-1) were able to escape the half-inning and keep the score knotted up at 2-2.
Pizarro also came close to finishing off the game in the bottom of the 8th, but was thrown out on a close play at home to end the inning.
But the very next inning, in the bottom of the 9th, the Wildcats managed to put runners on first and second, before Jackson Campbell lobbed a ball right down the third-base line — bringing in Robbie Miles for the game winning run.
Next up for the Wildcats is an away game at Lake Mary (8-3, 3-1).
