Wayne South rallies to victory

Published in Sports on July 9, 2008 1:53 PM

Wayne County South used some seventh inning heroics to beat Farmville Central 3-1 on Tuesday night in Junior American Legion baseball action.

Trailing 1-0 Keenan Winn came through in the clutch with a go-ahead three-run blast.

The home run proved to be enough offense as Matt Neal worked a scoreless seventh to collect the win on the mound. Cody Richards got a no-decision despite a strong five-inning outing.

Neal also contributed at the plate for Wayne South, ripping two hits in three at-bats. Scott Holloman and Kevin Wise each notched one hit in the win.

Thanks to a first round bye, Wayne County South will now enjoy a week of rest before the playoffs begin on Tuesday.
