Box Score | Photo Gallery

UTICA, Mich. – The Westside Woolly Mammoths (3-3) out hit the Utica Unicorns (4-3) 6-2, yet were not able to get it done defensively, allowing a walk-off in the sudden victory inning to give the Unicorns the win in the first game of Saturday’s doubleheader at Jimmy John’s Field.

The Unicorns took the lead early in the game as Dee Triplett brought Andre Demetral home with an RBI single, but it would not last long as the Mammoths Francis Florentino would hit a 320-foot bomb to left field for his first home run of the season, tying the game 1-1.

Utica would regain the lead quickly, however, after a Sam Buduris sacrifice that scored Seth Gergely from second. The Mammoths would pick up a run to tie the game in the third off the bat of Coby Seltzer.

The game would end in regulation 2-2, meaning that it would enter sudden victory. Andre Demetral would hit a walk off RBI single to bring in the runner from second to secure the win for the Unicorns.

The sudden victory format is as follows: a coin toss will take place at home plate between the managers of both teams. The home team will call their selection as the umpire tosses the coin. The winner of the coin toss will select whether they will take the field defensively or bat in the inning. The team at bat will remain the same batting order as the previous inning with the hitter making the last out placed at first base. If the team scores a run, they win. If they are held scoreless, the victory goes to the team on defense.
