LOCAL BASEBALL: Glen Rock, Dallastown battle to tie in bizarre York-Adams Legion game
SPRY — It was a crazy final two innings at Shryock Field Monday evening.
Visiting Glen Rock took a two-run lead (5-3) into the bottom of the seventh, but home-standing Dallastown rallied to tie the score 5-5 with one out in the bottom of the seventh.
The home team nearly won the game with a walk-off hit with two outs, but the batter was called out at first on a bang-bang play.
The visitors scored three times in the eighth to take an 8-5 lead with two runs driven in off the bat of Glen Rock starting pitcher Jacob Mahan.
But after Dallastown loaded the bases with one out in the bottom of the eighth, the contest was called because of darkness.
As a result, the contest will go down as a 5-5 seven-inning deadlock because the full eighth inning was not completed.
First-place Dallastown is now 4-0-1 in the York-Adams American Legion East Division, while Glen Rock fell to 3-2-1.
