Wranglers run winning streak to 9 by edging Woodstock in 10 innings

Luray made it 9 straight VBL wins with a thrilling 3-2 victory over the visiting Woodstock River Bandits Saturday night at Bulldog Field. The Wranglers needed 10 innings and clutch hitting from Adam McClain (Memphis) to improve their mark to 17-6 for the season. McClain hit a 2-run home run to plate Clay Kelly (Dallas Baptist) and give the home team a 2-0 lead that held up until the top of the ninth inning. Woodstock (9-13) tied the game with two runs after there were 2 outs in their final at bat.

McClain came to the plate with a runner on second base (C.J Lauriello) and proceeded to stroke a single to right center field to send the home fans happy...... The two pitching staffs combined for 30 strike outs- Yes 30 Strike Outs..... More details to come later!

that was definately a great game. it kept me on the edge of the stands during OT and hoping Luray would win. When Adam hit the basehit i knew we were able to get that last run in to win.

Congrats Wranglers!

There was a great deal of drama for sure! How about the attempted steal of home plate in the bottom of the 8TH ?
