BLANCHESTER — Lydia Peters doubled in the winning run Tuesday as Blanchester scored three runs in the bottom of the seventh Tuesday to beat Georgetown 8-7.
The SBAAC National Division win puts Blanchester at 6-6 overall and 2-3 in the division.
“Another come from behind win, which is something this team has done several times this year,” BHS manager Jamey Grogg said.
Blanchester trailed 7-5 going to the bottom of the seventh. Only two of the Georgetown runs were earned, as Rianna Mueller pitched a solid game for BHS.
Madison Creager homered in the seventh to make it 7-6 then Zoie Stanforth singled and Maggie Caldwell was hit by a pitch. Mueller singled to load the bases. One out later, Peters drove a pitch to center with Stanforth and Caldwell scoring for the win.
“Rianna gave us another solid outing and pitched out of a few jams to keep us in the ball game and give us a chance to win,” Grogg said.
Mueller, Peters and Stanforth all had three hits.
