NORTH JACKSON, OHIO – It doesn’t get more down to the wire and dramatic then what Jackson-Milton gave us Wednesday night against Springfield, knocking them out 3-2 in walk-off fashion.

Jackson-Milton opened up the scoring in the second inning on a Jaidyn Henry sacrifice fly that scored one run. The Blue Jays picked up another run in the bottom of the fourth, which led to Springfield runs in the fifth and sixth innings to tie the game at 2-2, setting things up for a dramatic finish. Vincent Fay was at the plate for Jackson-Milton in the bottom of the seventh inning, singling on a 2-2 count to drive in the winning run to send the Blue Jays in total pandemonium.

Aaren Romigh led the Bluejays to victory on the hill. Romigh’s outing lasted seven innings, allowing six hits and two runs while striking out seven. Jackson-Milton racked up three runs on six hits with two fielding errors.

The win for Jackson-Milton extended their winning streak to three straight and kept them atop the MVAC Scarlet Tier standings.
