The Sacred Heart Varsity Gremlins brought home the win, thanks to a big seventh inning.

The Gremlins scored five runs in the seventh inning to secure a win over Kingsville on Wednesday night.

The Gremlins were the first to get on the board in the first, when Rice hit a sacrifice run scoring one run.

The Grems took the lead in the top of the third, Gavin Caldwell singled, scoring one run to take the lead 2-1. The top of the fifth was very exciting with back-to-back, out-of-the-park home runs by Connor and Carter Rice. Their father, Rusty Rice, said the last time they did this was when they were 10 and hit their very first home runs and it happened to be back to back. Thanks to the effort from the twins, the Gremlins led 4-3.

Carter Rice earned the win for Sacred Heart. The righty allowed three hits and one run (zero earned) over five innings, striking out 13 and walking none.
