WASHINGTON, PA - The Washington Wild Things were matched up against the fourth-place Frontier Greys on Friday, June 19. The Greys took a twelve-inning thriller by the score of 2-1 after coming back from a 1-0 deficit.

Washington starter Matt Sergey went 8.1 innings with nine strikeouts, while allowing one run. Shortstop Austin Wobrock gave his pitcher a lead in the bottom of the seventh when he doubled down the first base line to score designated hitter David Popkins. Wobrock led all Wild Things at the plate, going 3-5 with the lone RBI.

It was not until the top of the ninth that the Greys struck back. Center fielder Jhiomar Veras came off the bench to hit a home run, tying the game at one run apiece.
