Bouncing back from a disastrous first inning, Lyndonville rallied to nip visiting Northstar 7-6 this afternoon in a non league game to improve to 12-0 on the season.

Northstar jumped out to a 6-0 first inning lead as the Warriors capitalized on two walks, two hit batters and three singles.

Lyndonville though came battling back scoring once in the third and three more in the fourth to get back in the game. Justin Edwards had a big two out, three-run double in the fourth after an error and two walks had loaded the bases.

The Tigers later pulled out the win by scoring three times in the sixth on an error off a nifty sacrifice bunt by Trevor Bentley, and a two-run single by Edwards.

“We were lucky to pull it out,” said Tigers Coach Shane Price.
