Lebanon walks-off winners against North

The Lebanon Tigers baseball team needed a clutch hit if they didn't want to fall two games behind North Montgomery in the Sagamore Conference standings.

And thanks to Coty Edwards, they got it. Edwards hit the first pitch off the wall to drive home Wyatt Geisler and Brantley Fortner and give Lebanon a 2-1 win against North Montgomery.

The win propelled the Class 3A No. 3 Tigers to a three-way tie atop the Sagamore Conference standings with Crawfordsville and North Montgomery.

"Coty has been hitting the ball well," Lebanon head coach Rick Cosgray said. "He was very disciplined at the plate tonight and stayed within himself; he didn't try to do too much there. You look for seniors to come up with big hits and Coty did a great job of that."

The game was tied at 0 through five innings.

After a 1-2-3 inning by the Tigers, the Lebanon bats went to work.

Isaac Harker tripled with one out. Colton Ranney was hit by the next pitch and the Chargers intentionally walked Caleb Myers to load the bases with one out. Charger starter Jalen West was able to force Jackson Bennett to hit into a 1-2-3 double play to end the threat.
