Tigers beat Towanda 7-5 in back and forth game

by Brady Connolly - May 4, 2017

The North-Penn Tigers prevailed in a back and forth game against the Towanda Black Knights on Wednesday May 3rd. The Tigers came into the game off a loss to Northern Potter, and in the middle of a difficult stretch of 4 games in 4 nights.

Towanda scored in the first inning and took a 1-0 lead into the second. But Towanda was unable to increase their lead, and the Tiger offense got on the board in their half of the second when Logan Adams beat a throw to home.

The Tigers held Towanda scoreless in the top of the third, and the Tigers offense got the lead back. Joel Whitteker scored on a RBI single from Carl Dinger, and Kipp Hilson scored on an RBI single from Dylan Williamson giving the Tigers a 3-1 heading into the fourth.

Neither team was able to score in the fourth inning, but Towanda chipped one run off the North-Penn Mansfield lead in the top of the fifth inning. The Tiger offense went scoreless again the fifth, and Towanda took advantage in the top of the sixth, scoring 3 runs to take the lead 5-3.

North-Penn Mansfield was down to their final out in the sixth before they started to rally. Derek Herbst got things started when he laced one to the right field wall and legged out a triple. Joel Whitteker brought Herbst home with a single. Joel Whitteker then got himself to third base after reacting quickly to some sloppy ball handling from Towanda, and eventually scored as well. Then, with Hillson and Dinger on base, Dylan Williamson knocked the RBI double into the outfield and the Tigers took a 7-5 lead.

The Tiger defense closed the Black Knights out to put a 7-5 win in the books. Logan Adams went six innings on the mound and got the win for the Tigers, and Kipp Hilson tallied the save. Hillson also went 1-2, with a single and 2 runs. Dylan Williamson went 2-4; with a single, a double, and 3 RBIs.

North-Penn Mansfield continues this grueling stretch today against Troy, and wrap up their 4 game/4 night on Friday when they travel to Wyalusing.
