“Better late than never” was certainly applicable to Henderson County Post 77 on Wednesday night in East Flat Rock.
Henderson (11-13) trailed 4-2 in the ninth inning before tying up Gastonia and going on to win Game 2 of their American Legion playoff series, 5-4.
Josh Conard (East Henderson) was 5-for-6 with a double and an RBI. Brett Baker (West Henderson) brought in Noah Poteat (Rosman) with the deciding run on an RBI bunt in the 12th inning.
Austin Fisher (East Henderson) smacked a solo home run in the first inning.
The best-of-five series is now tied 1-1. The teams play Game 3 Thursday night at 7 p.m. at Gastonia Ashbrook.
