County League baseball: Spring Mills earns walk-off win over Lemont

Micah Schrenkel singled and did the rest on the basepaths to score the game-winning run in the ninth inning to give the Spring Mills Braves a 7-6 win over Lemont on Thursday night.

Schrenkel stole second after reaching base, then took advantage of two wild pitches to give the Braves the walk-off win for their second victory of the season.

Spring Mills had led since the bottom of the first, but the Ducks took the lead with two runs in the top of the seventh thanks to a Brave error to plate two runs. Cody Luse doubled and scored on a Joe Botolia ground out in the bottom of the seventh to force extra innings.

Luse earned the win with three innings of relief work after a strong six-inning starting performance from Rich Auman.
