Grovatt came through with the game winning hit tonight.
The West Virginia Power won a marathon game tonight, taking a 5-4 victory over the Lexington Legends in 14 innings. West Virginia entered the bottom of the 9th inning trailing by a run, but Rogelios Noris came through with a towering shot with two outs, sending the game in to extra innings, tied at 4-4. The score stayed the same until the 14th inning, when Dan Grovatt hit a bases loaded single, bringing home Noris for the winning run.
"He had a good pitch, I mean a curveball in there," Grovatt said of the final at-bat. "I struck out on that pitch previously in the game, and I tried to stay short and stay through it. Fortunately I put a good swing on it."
Tyler Waldron got the start tonight, but only lasted four innings, allowing three runs, all of which came in the third inning. Waldron was working in the 90-92 MPH range, and was getting hit hard in the third, giving up all four of his hits, all with two outs.
