After getting shut out over the first five innings of Friday’s game at South Lyon, the Livonia Franklin baseball team’s batting order suddenly turned into “Murderer’s Row”.
With the Lions on top 4-0 after five, both teams exchanged single runs in the sixth before the Patriots blew up for five runs in the top of the seventh to seize a 6-5 lead.
Kyle Wollam yielded just a two-out double in the bottom of the frame to earn the save and boost Franklin’s record to 8-1.
Mitch Gonyaw earned the win after pitching the first six innings.
The five-run uprising start with walks to Nick Curtis and Joe Chinavare and a single by Adrian Reed. Tyler Camp then grounded out to bring home the first run and close the gap to 5-2.
Ryan Prohaska walked to re-load the bases before Gonyaw singled home Chinavare. After Jake Fry scored another run on an infield single, Hunter Sellers plated the tying run with a single and Jay Hopson knocked in the game-winner with a fielder’s choice groundout.
Sellers was the lone Patriot to register two hits.
