Leopards Rally for Walk-Off Win Against Quakers – Baseball

Louisville 5, Salem 4

The Louisville Leopards rallied for a 5-4 walk-off win against the visiting Salem Quakers Tuesday at the Field of Dreams. With the win, Louisville keeps pace for Leopard Head Long Sleeve Blue Shirt - Under Armor - Beatty's Sports Spring 2017second place in the NBC with a record of 7-3 and improves their overall mark to 15-6.

Davis Burick delivered a walk-off 2-run double in the last of the seventh to lift the Leopards past the Quakers. The clutch 2-out game-winner capped off a 3-for-3 effort for the Freshman Third Baseman. Cameron Prasco scored the tying run from second and Jack Davis came all the way home from first for the winning score.

Both were pinch-runners during the inning which started out with two quick outs. Brendan Hoffman kept Louisville alive with a line drive single to center and was replaced by Prasco. He advanced to second after Anthony Carpico drew a four pitch walk. Davis entered for Carpico and became the game-clinching run three pitches later.

Back in the third inning, Brody Hahn’s 2-out RBI single drove in Tyler Adams to give the Leopards the first edge of the game. That was the only run scored Grove Appliance Alliance Ohio Adthrough the first five innings as a pitching duel between Salem’s Johnny McCoy and Louisville’s Carson Davis ensued.

Davis pitched 6 innings, gave up 1 earned run on just 1 hit, and struck out 10 to lead the Leopards. The Quakers only run off Davis came in the sixth inning without the aide of a hit. A pair of walks, a sacrifice bunt, and a wild pitch allowed Jake Maenz to score the game-tying run for Salem.

Louisville took the lead back in the bottom of the sixth. Adams ripped a 2-run triple to center scoring the go-ahead run in Burick and an insurance run in Nate Mongiardo. Adams would finish the evening 2-for-4 at the plate and the Leopards rode a 3-1 lead into the final frame.

The first three Quakers reached base in the top of the seventh. Shawn Chappel singled in Jerod Carner to cut the Leopard lead to 3-2 without a recorded out. Mongiardo struck out the next Salem batter for the first out, but a walk loaded the bases. After another out, Ricky Enlow shot a go-ahead 2-run single to right field scoring both Aaron Robbins and Chappel to give Salem a 4-3 lead.

However, Louisville rallied in the seventh for their third straight home walk-off. The Leopards are now tied with the West Branch Warriors for second place in the NBC Standings just a game behind the first place Minerva Lions.

UP NEXT: The Leopards will next travel to Salem to take on the Quakers on Thursday, May 4 at 5:00 PM.
