Goldpanners walk-off against San Diego in Game 2

By  | 

The Alaska Goldpanners secured a Game 2 victory over the San Diego Waves thanks to a walk-off hit from Braxton Inniss.

"I kind of knew it was fair, I saw the chalk pop up. You know it could go either way, I'm just happy that I stayed inside of it enough, and got the job done for my team." said Inniss.

The freshman from Northern Colorado University nailed the game winner in the bottom of the 10th down the first base line, bringing in Tony Riley. Joseph Riley got the win on the mound for the Panners after shutting out the Waves in the final five innings. The senior from Lewis-Clark State only gave up three hits and got three strikeouts. The Goldpanners bounced back from the series opening loss, with a great defensive effort.

Alaska won Game 2 despite giving up 12 hits and having three errors. They now look to keep the momentum up in Game 3 tomorrow night against the Waves at 7 P.M. in Growden Park.
