As the saying goes, "Ya had to be there".
This game promised to be a dogfight and it did not disappoint. Things looked bleak for the T-Wolves in the early going as Roseville took a lead on solid hitting including a pair of home runs but the Woodcreek squad started stringing hits together and chased the Roseville ace from the game as well as a succession of relievers.
Down by a crooked number, Woodcreek broke through in the third when John Peska walked, took second on an error, advanced on a passed ball and scored on a wild pitch. The score was narrowed further in the fourth as Wade Brill walked and Kramer Sutey crunched a two run shot over the left field fence to make it 3-5 Roseville.
Roseville stormed back with a couple and Woodcreek countered with three more in the 5th as Tyler Milani reached on a fielder’s choice, Perry Beaber walked, and Brill singled to bring Milani in. Sutey followed with a single plating Beaber, and Brandon Raposa drove a single as Dennis Olsen, pinch running for Brill, came home.
Again Roseville countered with several more runs and lead by five at one point but Woodcreek kept within striking distance scoring three more in the 6th as Nogosek reached on a ball the third baseman couldn’t come up with, Kyle Dixon doubled driving in Nogosek, Tyler Milani rapped a double to score Dixon, and Brill scorched one to the second baseman who could not find the handle to score Milani.
In the seventh, Roseville mounted another threat though a sure sacrifice fly to right field with a runner on third was spoiled when Brandon Raposa in right caught the ball and unloaded a bullet to Wade Brill, catching, nailing the runner at the plate.
Down by two in the bottom of the seventh, Woodcreek’s Austin Hagarty doubled and Kyle Dixon drew a walk. Tyler Milani came to bat and drove a hot grounder to third that wasn’t handled scoring Hagarty . John Peska walked to load the bases. Woodcreek, now down by one in the bottom of the seventh, saw Perry Beaber slap a single the opposite way for his first hit of the game bringing home two in walk off fashion bringing on the celebration. Woodcreek T-Wolves 12, Roseville 11.
