Baseball stuns Louisa to keep season alive

Last night, the Streaks took the field as the two seed in the conference 23 tournament and hosted the three seed Louisa County. Louisa entered the game with the record of 12-8. While the Streaks were coming off of a win over in conference foe Handley and entered with a record of 14-6.

Louisa County never trailed until the final play of the game. The Streaks entered the bottom of the seventh inning down by two runs. Senior second baseman Scott Wise got on base with a single to open up the inning. Senior first baseman Ryan Kiser then hit it straight to the shortstop who turned the 6-4-3 double play. The Streaks now were down to their final out and their season was over if Louisa got that final out.

The Streaks rallied back from behind and got the bases loaded with two outs. The unbelieveable was done with two very close infield plays involving sophomore Christian Whitelow. The play at first base which dragged the first baseman was the more questionable call in which many fans thought that the umps would side with Louisa. However, the play at second base Christian just beat the throw by maybe a fraction of a second, but not much more than that.

The Streaks will face the number one seed Amherst County in Amherst at 6pm on Thursday May 28th. No matter win or lose for either team they will move onto regionals.
