Union-Endicott’s C.J. Krowiak scored on a grounder by Matt Eastman as the Tigers rallied for three runs in the seventh inning for a 4-3 victory over host Vestal in a Southern Tier Athletic Conference baseball game Monday.
U-E (11-1) trailed 3-1 entering the seventh inning, but singles by Austin Malarkey, Anthony Noce and Krowiak off Vestal reliever Mike Osinski loaded the bases before Joey Orlando delivered a two-run single that tied the score at 3.
Eastman then followed hit a grounder to Vestal second baseman Kevin Franz, who threw home on the play — but Krowiak got in before the tag to put U-E ahead 4-3.
Vestal put a runner on first with one out in the seventh, but U-E reliever Jared McStine got the final two outs for the save.
