CHOWCHILLA -- Jonathan Schiesser doubled in the eighth inning and eventually came around to score on an error as the Chowchilla baseball team edged Golden Valley 9-8 in extra innings on Wednesday afternoon.
Andy Jurado helped Chowchilla (4-2) jump out to a 7-0 lead with a grand slam in the first inning on a 12-pitch at-bat.
Golden Valley (3-7) came back to take an 8-7 lead before Chowchilla tied the game in the bottom of the seventh and won it in the eighth.
“We gave up the lead, but we never gave up effort,” Chowchilla coach Kirk Delmas said. “The bench was loud and the players were into it the whole game.”
