SEDALIA POWERS WAY TO COMEBACK OVER NEVADA

Date: June 23, 2022, 11:06 am

The Sedalia Bombers came back from down 10-0 in the seventh to defeat the Nevada Griffons 11-10 Wednesday night.

Nevada starter Jerimiah Caesar had not allowed a Sedalia hit before Christopher Pudney homered to left for the first hit and the first runs of the game for the visitors. Two more runs scored in the seventh inning, with four scoring in the eighth off Nevada relievers to get within the 10-8 score.

Sedalia completed the comeback in the ninth when a three-run homer from catcher Hunter Lopaki gave Sedalia their first lead of the night, which they held onto for the final 11-10.

The loss spoiled a big offensive day for new catcher Grant Noaks, who collected three hits, walked once, and drove in four runs. Jase Schneider and Seth Grey each collected a pair of hits, while Andrew Pickering walked three times in the loss.

Lopacki and Pudney each drove in three runs for Sedalia, who ended a four-game skid and improved to 10-9.

Brett Mooney picked up the win after giving up no runs and no hits in the eighth, while Nevada's third pitcher, Justin Agnor picked up the loss as the Griffons fell to 4-14
