In game two between the Apaches and Spartans, things took a wild turn in the late going, with Glenbrook earning a crazy, come-from-behind victory over Prairie View.
With the game tied 4-4 in the sixth, PVA broke the game wide-open with seven runs in the inning to lead 11-4. That’s where the score was when Glenbrook came to bat in the bottom of the seventh.
Trevor McClean led off the final inning with a base hit, followed by four more hits from Colt Wilson, Nick Mourad, Parker Christy and Mason Hood. After walks to Cam Barnette and Cade Clemons, Hayden Williams reached on error making the score 11-10. With one out in the inning, Trevor McClean walked to load the bases, bringing up Mourad.
With control of district 6AA on the line, Mourad smoked a line drive to right field that scored the two runs needed to win the game.
Wilson came in to pitch and stopped the bleeding during the disastrous sixth inning. The improbable win puts Glenbrook in the driver’s seat early on in the district race.
