Casper Horseheads

The Casper Horseheads were in position to end their two-game losing streak Wednesday night before the Western Nebraska Pioneers rallied for a 9-7 victory in Gering, Nebraska.

Casper (3-10) scored three runs in the top of the ninth inning on a wild pitch and Cristian Lopez's two-run single to take a 7-6 lead. Reliever Owen Vabthillo got the first two outs in the bottom of the frame before allowing a solo home run that tied the score, followed by a double and a two-run homer on a 2-2 count to give the Pioneers the win.

The two teams finished off their three-game series Thursday before the Horseheads return home to host the Mining City Tommyknockers for a three-game set beginning Friday at Mike Lansing Field.
