Twice the Wildcats rallied from behind.
The second time, sparked by a Jocko Spataro two-run double, Sulphur Springs got the lead to stay as they took a 10-7 win Friday over Longview.
The crowd in and around Eagle Stadium, including bleacher creatures on the top row of Gerald Prim Stadium got to see a thrilling battle with more twists and turns than a rollercoaster.
The District 13-4A game came down to the final innings, and actually down to one at-bat and in particular one pitch.
"It was a curveball that didn't curve, it just hung there," said Spataro of the Luke Nash pitch in the sixth inning. Spataro blasted the pitch down the left field line with two outs and two runners on base. Longview outfielder Andrew Deerfield tried to make a running grab, but the ball hit off his glove allowing Spataro to advance to second with a double, but more importantly two runs to score and break the 7-all tie.
