Jake LeightonTravis Mc Glauflin


Travis McGlauflin hit a walk off double with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, driving in the winning run in Barry Meyer as the A's edged out the Bird Island Bullfrogs 2-1 on Wednesday night.

Jake Leighton was stellar on the mound, going the distance for Marshall while allowing just 1 run on 6 hits. Leighton struck out 3 Bullfrog batters.

After Bird Island jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first, the A's tied the game at 1-1 with a 2 out rally in the 4th. Meyer singled and then stole second base. Derek Schlangen followed with an RBI single to tie the score.

Meyer and Jordon Kontz each had a pair of hits for the A's.

The A's will host the Luverne Redbirds on Friday night as part of US Bank Night at the ballpark. First pitch is scheduled for 7:30 pm.
