Vienna Senators use Big Inning to Smash Sluggers

Vienna (Va.) Senators 9, Wichita Sluggers 3

The Senators scored six runs in the top of the ninth to break open a 3-3 game. Sluggers starting pitcher Matt Robertson had been resilient for eight innings, but gave up the go-ahead home run to Kevin Watkins to start the ninth.

"We rode him a little too long," Sluggers coach Mark Standiford said.

Tyler Townsend added a two-run shot later in the inning.

Kyle Hald got the win for the Senators after coming in to relieve Ryan Woolley. Hald went five innings.

"He got in a grove and we didn't make anything happen," Standiford said.
