Bengals "Squeeze" Wildcats in Bottom of the 7th

The late inning magic returned to Nobby's Ballpark as the Bengals defeated St. Ignatius with a late inning rally 7-6.  Down five runs heading into the 6th inning the Bengals rallied to score four runs in the 6th and two in the 7th to pull the upset.
Junior shortstop Tim Szalay started the rally in the 7th with a triple.  Junior first baseman Jordan Durham followed with an RBI double to tie the game.  Junior infielder AJ Bruno ran for Durham and advanced to 3rd base on a wild pitch.  Following an out and walk junior pitcher/ infielder Joe Fisher came to the plate.  Fisher took a first pitch ball then perfected the squeeze play with a great bunt as Bruno scored the winning run.   Fisher pitched four innings of relief and recorded his first Varsity pitching victory.  He also added an RBI double in the 6th inning.

The JV continued their impressive season with a 9-7 victory over St. Ignatius.  The team has a 15-2 record heading into the final two weeks of the season.
