Dr. Franson Orthopedics played a familiar opponent Monday as they took on Aaron’s Heating and Air on Pete Holt Field in McMinnville Youth League girls 10-12 action.
Aaron’s 3-1 lead after one inning would be the deal breaker, as Dr. Franson couldn’t catch the Heating and Air gang in the end, dropping a close contest 5-3.
Maddox Adams put the first tick on the scoreboard after crossing home in the first inning for a 1-0 lead early for Dr. Franson.
Aaron’s came right back in the bottom of the inning with runs by Ceilee Gudat, Emma Johnson and Lexi Lafever to make it a 3-1 contest.
Neither team produced results in the second, but Dr. Franson Orthopedics’ Ky Damon and Kira Franson knotted the game 3 apiece.
Both Johnson and Lafever tallied 2 more runs in the third which would be the game winners as Aaron’s Heating and Air defense kept the innings short for Dr. Franson.
