WINCHESTER — Michael Jackson's bases-loaded single in the bottom of the eighth allowed James Wood to avenge an earlier-season loss to Musselman (W.Va.).

The Colonels got a break when Nick Bell reached on a dropped third strike with one out. Deuce Strosnider followed with a double and Evan LaFollette was intentionally walked to load the bases before Jackson's game-winning single.

Clayton Braithwaite's two-run, pinch-hit single capped a three-run sixth as the Colonels (12-2) rallied from a 3-0 deficit against Musselman, which defeated them 7-2 on March 20.

Daniel Francheschi got the final two outs in the eighth to earn the win. Bell allowed six hits, 3 runs and a walk, while striking out six over the first six innings. Cade Cornwell allowed three walks with a strikeout in 1.1 innings of hitless relief.
