Rally earns playoff berth for team VD

Ryan O'Donnell

VD was on the brink of elimination entering their make-up games on Sunday. After losing game one to BAMF, 4-5, VD needed to win their next two games to make the postseason.

After being down, 5-0, going into the fifth and final inning, VD brought in Kirby “The Vacuum” Dreher, Brittany Belko and Abby Kruszynski.

After getting a few runs with walks and solid hits, VD was down by one. Kruszynski drove in the tying run with a strike to left. Belko was then walked, loading the bases for Steve “The Monster” McCann.

With a 2-2 count, McCann hit a strike to the outfield, bringing in Mike Prinz for the game-winning run. With this 6-5 win, VD gained the confidence to win their next game and grab a postseason spot for the co-rec league.
