CELESTE - A five-run fifth inning gave Miller Grove the come-from-behind win Thursday during the Celeste Tournament.

Miller Grove's Reece Evans singled in Yan Heijligers in the bottom of the sixth inning as the time limit expired and went 2-for-4 with one run scored and one RBI, while teammate Jordan Lennon went 2-for-2 with two runs scored.

Heijligers went 1-for-4 with one run scored and two RBI and tied the game with a single in the sixth inning before scoring the game winner.

Seth Roberts picked up the win in relief of Brady Harmon and went three innings giving up three runs on two hits with two walks and six strikeouts.

"Brady started the game and pitched well but we didn't play well behind him," said MGHS coach Sam Panter. "He only gave up one earned run and struck out six in three innings. Seth came in the fourth inning and did a good job of keeping us in the game."

Dakota Hrabal, Harmon, Chance Lee, Steven Mayfield and Aaron Baylus recorded hits for the Hornets.
