WILMINGTON — Jena Rhoads scored from third on a passed ball in the 10th inning to give Wilmington a 9-8 win over East Clinton Tuesday in a non-league softball game.

Wilmington (1-5 on the year) trailed 6-0 after the Astros (1-4 this season) had a big first inning.

But the Hurricane chipped away and tied the game in the sixth inning.

In the 10th, Rhoads was hit by a pitch. She stole second and moved to third on an error, Wilmington manager Brian Spurlock said. The WHS leadoff hitter then came home on a passed ball for the win.

Toria Willis had two hits and two walks at the plate and pitched all 10 innings for Wilmington.

Freshman Chloe Scott had three hits and scored twice for the Astros.
