BUCYRUS — Upper Sandusky scored four times in the sixth inning to help it rally for a 9-5 victory in the completion of a suspended game against Wynford on Friday.
Trailing 5-4, the Rams (14-8, 10-3 North Central Conference) scored four times to take an 8-4 lead and added one more run in the seventh inning. The Royals built a lead with two runs in the first inning, two more in the fourth inning and one in the fifth inning.
Tiffany Towns was all over the bases for Upper Sandusky, getting two hits, steal three bases and scoring four times. Savanna Piecha and Paige Perry each singled and doubled, while Maranda Stansberry finished with two singles.
“We seemed to be pressing too hard at the start of the game,” Upper Sandusky coach Dave Young said. “Once the Rams got into the flow of the game, we started to get back to what we do best both offensively and defensively. The girls played with a lot of emotion knowing this was the seniors’ last league game.”
Lauren Rausch led Wynford with two hits and a run scored.
Allie Smith was the winning pitcher, allowing six hits and two walks with five strikeouts. Kayli Stuckman took the loss, giving up nine runs on 11 hits and two walks with two strikeouts.
Wynford closes out its season with an 11 a.m. home game today against Buckeye Central. Upper Sandusky competes in the district tournament at 5 p.m. Wednesday against Edison at Clyde.
