SELINSGROVE — Selinsgrove won a wild one over Juniata on Monday, as the Seals needed nine innings to take a 9-8 nonleague victory and move a win away from qualifying for the District 4 playoffs.
Selinsgrove (9-8) had 13 hits in the game, but the Seals scored their winning run on an error. Zac Broome and Aaron Zechman led off the ninth with a single and a walk, respectively, and they were followed by Ian Weaver who laid down a bunt that was misplayed to allow Broome to score.
“It was a crazy game,” said Selinsgrove coach Brent Beiler, whose team scored three runs in the sixth to take a 8-6 lead only to see Juniata tie the game with two runs in the seventh.
Zach Hendricks and Jake Nylund led the Seals with three hits apiece. Zechman and Broome each had two hits.
Selinsgrove hosts Central Mountain (today) and Lewisburg (Friday), and play at Berwick on Wednesday. The Seals need to win one of those games to reach the playoffs.
