Ada beats USV boys in suspended slugfest

By Cort Reynolds

McGUFFEY - The visiting Ada baseball team outslugged backyard arch-rival USV 20-16 in a game originally suspended by darkness in the seventh inning on an unseasonably warm Friday evening.

 

Ada improved to 3-4 with the big win over their winless non-league rival.

 

The Bulldogs trailed 6-3 after a wild first inning. Ada edged ahead 7-6 after scoring four runs in the second, then extended the lead to 15-6 with eight more scores in the top of the third.

 

USV rallied with six runs in the home half of the third to inch within 15-12. Yet Ada responded with five more scores in the top of the fourth to build the lead back to eight.

 

The Rams edged back within four scores on a run in the fifth and three more in the sixth.

 

But then the lengthy game was called due to darkness with Ada holding a 20-16 advantage. The teams combined for 36 runs, 25 hits and 10 errors in the contest.
