Trailing 8-3 going into the top of the seventh, the visiting Park View High School varsity baseball team rallied for five runs to force extra innings at Windsor HS in its Tri-Rivers District opener.
The game was stopped after eight innings, however, due to darkness, as the Windsor HS field does not have lights.
The contest is expected be finished at a later date.
“We were pleased to get it tied back up,” said Park View skipper Michael Barmoy. “I don’t feel like we played well overall as we committed six errors but we had a big seventh inning.”
Windsor got off to a quick start scoring two runs in the first inning on an error, a double, and a groundout.
Park View tied the score at two in the third inning when Justin Clary walked and Cameron Sheets and Jaison Dugger followed with singles.
Windsor responded with a pair of runs in the bottom of the third to take a 4-2 lead.
Park View trimmed the lead to 4-3 in the fifth inning when Trevor Tanner reached on a fielder’s choice, Jefferson Barmoy singled, and Mason Mills scored a run with an RBI single.
Windsor scored one run in the fifth and three in the sixth to open up an 8-3 lead.
Sheets and Dugger led off the top of the seventh with singles and Tanner reached on a fielder’s choice.
A walk by Barmoy loaded the bases and Ethan Stanley singled to drive in two runs.
A single by Patrick Moss scored another run and Clary scored Stanley with an RBI single. Moss then scored on a throwing error by the Dukes’ catcher to knot the score at eight.
Neither team was able to score in the eighth inning.
Sheets went 4 for 5 in the game for Park View while Dugger went 3 for 5 with 2 RBI.
Stanley went 1 for 1 with 2 RBI in the game while Mills and Clary added one hit and one RBI apiece.

PVJV’s Rally for Win
The Park View JV team rallied from a 2-1 deficit to pick up an 11-2 win at home last week.
The victory improved the Baby Dragons to 3-0 on the season.
“We’ve been playing pretty good,” said Coach Bill Jordan. “We’ve been stealing bases, bunting, hitting balls on the ground and manufacturing runs. Our pitching was good.”
Jordan said the team got a lift from the bottom of the lineup as Nathan Jones and Adam Piercy both scored runs and had several hits to help lift the offense.
Adam Holloway and Jackson Smiley teamed together to earn the victory on the mound.
