ATH12_004_CampbellJ_TMountain Cats Win Slugfest at A-B, 20-19
     04/22/12...Jeff Campbell's (Brackenridge, Pa.) sacrifice fly in the top of the ninth plated Joe Galbraith (Brookville, Pa.) to complete a 12-run Mountain Cat comeback in a 20-19 West Virginia Conference Northern Division win at Alderson-Broaddus on Sunday.  Pitt-Johnstown, which got home runs from Kyle Morrow (McVeytown, Pa.), Drew Westover (Flinton, Pa.), and Campbell, improved to 21-23 overall and 14-15 in the WVIAC North.
     The Mountain Cats started strong with three first-inning runs, but Alderson-Broaddus answered with one in the bottom of the frame and five in the second to take a 6-3 lead.
     The Battlers added seven more in the third and extended it to 17-5 after four innings to semingly take control, but Pitt-Johnstown began to claw its way back and eventually tied it at 19 going in the ninth inning.
     In the eighth inning, Morrow's three-run homerun cut it to 19-18, and Westover followed with a solo homer to tie it.
     The Mountain Cats completed the comeback with a run in the top of the ninth to take the 20-19 win.  Galbraith led off the inning with a single and advance two bases to third on an error by the leftfielder, before scoring the game-winning run on Campbell's sacrifice fly.
     Westover was 4-for-6 with a home run, two doubles and three RBI, and Galbraith had four hits, including a pair of doubles and two RBI.  Campbell singled, hit a three-run homer and drove in five, while Morrow singled, homered and drove in three.  Jake Warner (Pittsburgh, Pa.) added two doubles and two RBI for the Mountain Cats in the comeback victory.
     Nathan Pope (Hollidaysburg, Pa.) started and surrendered 11 runs on 10 hits in 2.1 innings.  Andrew Keirn (Dillsburg, Pa.) picked-up the win after tossing three scoreless innings in relief.  Keirn gave up just on hit and fanned four to improve to 3-1.
     With the loss, Alderson-Broaddus slipped to 21-22 overall and 17-10 in the WVIAC North.  
     The Mountain Cats will celebrate Senior Day with a WVIAC doubleheader against Davis & Elkins (WV) College on Thursday at 5 p.m. at the Point Stadium, before traveling to Shepherd (WV) University to wrap-up the regular season with a three-game conference series on Saturday and Sunday.
