The Oran Eagles had a lead against the Saxony Lutheran Crusaders at home on Tuesday but gave up a big inning and then had to rally to pick up a 7-6 win.
Drew Reischman hit a one-out shot over of the left field fence in the third for the game's first run.
In the fourth, the Eagles plated two more.
Denver Elfrink, singled, advanced on a wild pitch and then a passed ball before Austin Eftink walked. Elfrink scored and Eftink moved to second on the second wild pitch of the inning. Reischman drove home Eftink with a double to right-center.
The fifth frame belonged to the visitors.
The Crusaders used 3 singles, 2 walks, and a double to score 5 and take a 5-3 lead.
That was the score heading into the bottom of the 6th and once again Reischman was in the middle of things.
Eftink drew a lead-off walk, moved to second on Drew Mitchem's sacrifice bunt. Reischman drove in another with a two-out single to left to cut the deficit in half. Layne Johnson then singled to right to move Reischman to third. Johnson took off for second on a pitch home and as the catcher threw down, Reischman raced home to tie the game on a perfectly executed double steal.
Saxony was not done, however. They worked a walk to open the 7th and after two strikeouts, back-to-back singles propelled the Crusaders back on top.
In the bottom half, Oran used back-to-back singles of their own by Todd and Cole Priggel and a wild pitch to get runners on 2nd and 3rd with no one out. Elfrink then lifted a sac fly to left to tie the game. Eftink was intentionally walked to set up a possible double-play. With two down, Jacob Shoemaker wrangled a free pass to load them up. Then on a 3-1 pitch, Reischman saw the ball sail over the catcher's head for ball four to force in the game-winning run.
Reischman finished the day 3-4 at the plate, drove in 4 with a homer and a double. He also got the start on the mound, he did not figure in the decision. He went 4 2/3 gave up 5 runs, all earned, on 6 hits, he walked 4 and struck out 6.
Johnson went the final 2 1/3 picking up the win to improve to 4-1 on the year. He allowed 1 earned run on 3 hits, 1 walk and struck out 6.
Cole Priggel had two singles, the only other Eagles with multiple hits, as the team improved to 8-2.
