In facing challenges, there are many obstacles to overcome.
The Waverly Tigers found a way to fight their way back from a deficit at Washington Court House, turning it into a 9-7 conquest in Tuesday evening’s non-league tilt.
Waverly sophomore Peyton Harris (1-0) picked up his first victory of the season on the hill, going 5.1 innings and striking out two batters. Offensively, Harris helped his own cause by going 1-for-3 with a run and 2 RBIs.
There was plenty of offense in the comeback. Alex Boles was 2-for-4 with a triple, a run, and two RBIs. L.T. Jordan was 1-for-3 with a double, a run and an RBI. Ben Flanders also doubled, going 1-for-4 with a run and two RBIs. Dawson Shoemaker had a double as well, finishing 1-for-4 with a run. J.T. Barnett was 1-for-1 with a run, two walks and one RBI. Weston Roop went 1-for-3 with a run and an RBI.
“This was a great comeback road win,” said Waverly coach Jeff Noble.
That victory made Waverly 15-4 overall.
