Point Pleasant 6, Wayne 4

A little late-inning rally for some early-season magic. The Big Blacks overcame a 4-run deficit and plated four runs in the home half of the sixth to complete a come-from-behind 6-4 victory over visiting Wayne in a non-conference baseball matchup Tuesday. The Pioneers (0-2) built a quick 2-0 lead in the first and were ahead 4-0 midway through the third, but PPHS (1-0) started its comeback climb in the third with a 2-run homer from Joel Beattie. Luke Pinkerton started the sixth with a single and scored on a Cole Hatfield double for a 4-3 contest, then Brylan Williamson walked and advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by Riley Oliver. Evan Roach singled in Hatfield for a 4-all tie, then an Isaac Craddock groundout allowed Williamson to come home for a 5-4 edge. Roach later scored on an error that allowed Kyelar Morrow to reach safely. Morrow struck out nine and did not walk a batter in the complete-game decision. Hatfield paced the hosts with two hits. Levi Cassidy and Brayden Queen each produced three safeties for WHS.
