It seems the wait was worth it.
After two rainouts kept Triple C Nursery and Supreme Building from clashing in the boys 6-8 league, the pair of undefeated teams finally met Tuesday night. The battle of unbeatens went down to the wire, with Kiptin Medley lifting Supreme Building to a 12-11 victory with a walk-off single in the fifth.
Supreme Building (8-0) found itself trailing 11-9 entering the fifth after Triple C Nursery exploded for five runs in the top of the frame. Bryce Majors was able to quickly rally his team, banging a single to get his teammates on their feet.
Ledger Higgins followed with a single of his own, then both moved up on a Walker Beaty groundout. Conor McCormack continued the station-to-station movement for Supreme Building, putting runners on the corners when his single scored Majors.
Reaching the top of the order at the best possible time, Supreme’s lead-off Owen McGee knotted the score with a single while putting the winning run in scoring position. Once Medley cracked a shot into the grass, Supreme’s coaches decided the roll the dice and send McCormack toward home.
McCormack was able to beat the throw home, sending Supreme Building into celebration while handing Triple C Nursery its first loss.
Triple C Nursery (8-1) wouldn’t go quietly, scoring five runs in the first and fifth innings to push Supreme Building to the brink. Huck Damon had RBI triples to spark each big outburst, including his two-run shot in the fifth which drew his team to within one at 9-8.
Isaac Smith made sure Supreme Building would have to bat in the fifth when he followed Damon’s blast with a triple of his own to even the score. Auden Green pushed Triple C Nursery ahead with a RBI single, followed by Brystan Cantrell’s RBI double.
It wasn’t enough though, as Supreme’s offense got a huge boost from the bottom of the order to come back and win.
Medley finished with three hits in the victory, as did teammate A.J. Whitman, who added four RBIs. McGee, Majors, Higgins, McCormack, Jackson Moore and Grayson Todd had two hits each for Supreme Building, while Miguel Garcia’s lone single capped a three-run first inning for his squad.
Huck Damon, Auden Green, Eastlan Green and Adam Oleksik had three hits each for Triple C Nursery. Smith, Cantrell, Treyton Martin, Brant Damon, Trigg Culwell and Silgs Pardo also had hits in the loss.
Both teams proceeded Tuesday’s matchup with earlier wins in the afternoon. Triple C Nursery walloped T&M Farms 18-5 in the first game. Supreme Building followed with a 22-1 triumph over Citizen’s Tri County Bank.
Supreme Building and Triple C Nursery are set for a rematch Friday at 6:30 p.m. in the final game of the boys 6-8 league regular season.
