Spikes rally to win

BATAVIA, N.Y. – Nick Thompson started a State College Spikes rally with an eighth-inning double, then completed it with a double in the ninth to give the Spikes a comeback win over the Batavia Muckdogs, 5-3, on Monday night at Dwyer Stadium.

Thompson’s two-out double in the eighth, followed by Rowan Wick’s pinch-hit RBI single, started the Spikes (8-3) back from a 3-1 deficit in the eighth. In the ninth inning, three straight base hits, the last by Chase Raffield, tied the game at 3-3.

After a sacrifice bunt by Jhohan Acevedo moved runners to second and third, Thompson launched another two-out double to center field to give State College their first lead of the game. The William & Mary product now has 10 RBI in his first 10 games as a professional.
