Smith and Ahmed Combine for Hillcats Walk-off Win

Posted:

 

From the Hillcats:

Lynchburg, VA- The Hillcats snapped their three game losing streak in walk-off fashion. Not in the way you would suspect. An RBI fielder's choice was the final play as new Hillcat Tim Smith becomes a hero in the 4-3 victory.

 

 

Each team threatened but neither could plate a run until the ninth. Ahmed reached base with his second single of the day with one out. A stolen base and wild pitch to Tommy La Stella allowed Ahmed to get to third. The Pelicans eventually intentionally walked La Stella to set-up a force play. Tim Smith was up with runners on the corners and the infield in. Smith was sawed-off by a Jimmy Reyes fastball. Smith's bat broke and flew towards Santiago Chirino at second. Chrinio tug La Stella on the softly hit ball, but Chrinio couldn't get the ball out of his glove in time to get a hustling Smith. Ahmed scored to end the gave and give the Hillcats the victory 4-3.
