BASEBALL

Green 5, Marlington 4 (9)

Matthew Amison delivered a clutch single in the ninth inning to score the game-winning run for the Bulldogs in a thrilling nonconference matchup Saturday afternoon.

In the seventh inning, Amison had cracked a game-tying double to score Shea Simmer from first base and send the game to extra innings.

Small ball was key in the ninth as Green (12-5) started the inning with Trent Autz reaching base on a hit-by-pitch. Andrew Micale laid down a sacrifice bunt to advance Autz to second and set up Amison's heroics.

Marlington (8-4) loaded the bases with two outs in the ninth, but Brody Jobe came in to shut the door and lock down his first save of the year.
