Coming into Thursday's contest on a four-game losing streak, the Western Boone baseball team needed something good to happen.
They got actually what they needed. Western Boone twice came back from three-run deficits to top Southmont 7-6 on a walk-off single by Clay Biesecker.
"This was huge for us," Western Boone head coach Cesar Barrientos said. "We just lost to these guys 23-0 on Tuesday, so for us to come back and compete like this was big. Nathanial Bye pitched well for us, it wasn't his best outing, the cold got to him a little bit, it kept us there. It feels good to win."
Western Boone gave up three runs in the top of the first inning, but came back with three runs in the bottom of the inning.
TJ Wilson walked to lead off the game, stole second and moved to third on a wild pitch.
After a strike out, Biesecker was hit by a pitch and Tyler Hale walked to load the bases.
Zach McMann hit an RBI-ground out to plate Wilson and advance the other two runners before Mitchell Graham reached on an error that tied the game.
Southmont scored two in the fourth and another in the fourth inning to regain its three-goal lead, but the Stars put together a three-run, two-out rally in the bottom of the fourth.
