JCBC 17, Schlappi Joes 16

JOHNS CREEK — After falling behind 2-0 in the top of the first, the first 8 men reached base and scored for JCBC in the bottom half of the first. After a scoreless second inning for both teams, JCBC would relinquish the lead in the third. A dropped ball error extended the top of the third for Schlappi Joes and they took advantage by pushing 7 runs across for a 9-8 lead.

But JCBC battled back again with four runs of their own in the bottom of the third to regain the lead. After the first two men reached base, Chris delivered a run scoring single. After two men scored on an error, David drove in another run with a ground out. JCBC tacked on two more in the bottom of the fourth on back-to-back RBI hits by Nathaniel and Bryan.

Taking a 5-run lead into the fifth inning, JCBC was bit by the big inning again. Schlappi Joes struck for seven runs, but a double play and a runner thrown out at home staunched the damage. Needing two runs to tie, Austin doubled in one run, but a base-running mishap led to an out. A few batters later, John lifted a sacrifice fly to right to bring in the tying run. With two outs and the bases loaded, Nathaniel lined a walk-off single to center to end the game.

JCBC improved to 2-0 on the season with their second come-from-behind victory. Consistent offensive production and some timely defense helped JCBC win its second straight game to open the season. They take on the Dirty Birds next week.
