Clinton wins with rally

(Continued)

The Chiefs were in control for a majority of the game. Shortstop Ildarmo Vargas opened things up with a double off LumberKings’ starter Tyler Pike in the first inning. Vargas scored on a grounder to left field from teammate Jordan Walton to give Peoria the lead, 1-0. Were it not for a leaping grab at the fence by Zorrilla in the second inning, Peoria may have padded more runs early.

In the fourth inning, Nick Martini had a sacrifice RBI to make it 2-0. The LumberKings answered with two runs in the bottom half, but two innings later, Peoria’s Jeremy Schaffer belted one over right-center to retake the lead.

The sixth would be Pike’s last inning, and he was thankful to earn the no-decision after leaving the game trailing 4-2.

“It’s great having guys come in and help you out even when things aren’t going your way,” Pike said. “You feel a little more confident on the mound knowing they’re going to back you up.”

Pike finished with five strikeouts, while Wood earned the win on three innings of one-hit ball.

Clinton hosts Peoria tonight and tomorrow in Games 2 and 3 of the series. Both games start at 7 p.m.
