Springboro needs late-inning heroics to beat Xenia

Springboro’s baseball team scored four runs in the top of the seventh inning to squeak past Xenia, 4-3, on Tuesday.

Trailing 3-0 heading in to the final inning, Ben Beachy led with a double and later scored on a fielder’s choice. Cody Pelfrey’s two-out triple plated two to tie the game. After an intentional walk to put runners on the corner, Pelfrey scampered home on a double-steal attempt for the go-ahead run.
