BNL rallies from 10-0
deficit to stun TH South
By Justin Sokeland
Bedford North Lawrence was singing in the rain, and it was a wonderful feeling to be happy – and winning – again.
One out away from a embarrassing 10-0 loss in what would ultimately be the final game of the regular season, with no real momentum or inspiration, with the ever-present spring showers spitting on them, the Stars crawled from the grave for stunning victory on Friday night.
Someone called it a miracle under the lights. And it was certainly close to that. But BNL has done this before this season, exploding offensively without warning. This time, Terre Haute South was the victim that got too close and got burned as the Stars (16-10) rallied for a shocking 11-10 victory in 8 innings.
That three-hour marathon was supposed to be the first game of a doubleheader. Game 2 was started but quickly cancelled in the bottom of the first inning as the redundant rain made the playing surface dangerous. When the opposing pitcher has to yank off her glasses to see (hopefully) the plate, it’s time to call it a night.
Besides, there’s no way any encore could match Game 1.
